You know that “Panda” song by Desiigner? Well, there’s a new video for it that features real pandas and Chinese subtitles.
The 4-minute video opens with a 30-second clip of actual pandas, with a voiceover introduction of the significance of pandas to China.
Following that, the video claims “In America… There is a new panda on the rise”, and soon Desiigner is seen on screen. He takes a big swig of drink and begins rapping against a neon backlight and a backdrop of women.
Meanwhile, an animated panda head bounces over the top of Mandarin subtitles to cue each word, as commonly seen in karaoke videos.
Definitions to words like “Lean – Purple happy sleepy beverage” and “Montana – God of white powder” are stripped in intermittently for the benefit of unknowing Chinese brothers.
Produced by 88 Rising, we’re expecting this video to break the Internet in just a bit.
