Xi, Peng’s romantic video goes viral!
Released by the official media, the video titled ‘Xi Dada Loves Peng Mama’ caught the public by surprise as it was unprecedented in Chinese Communist Party’s recent history to highlight the life a leader since the Mao Zedong-era. The 3 minute and 21 second video contains 33 photos and 2 comic illustrations of the couple showing small details such as tacit eye contact between them.

As of last evening, the music video had more than 22 million hits on Tencent’s video website, reported the People’s Daily online, the official publication of the ruling Communist Party of China. In the video, ‘Xi Dada’ (meaning Uncle Xi) and ‘Peng Mama’ (meaning Mother Peng) are seen traversing the world including Gujarat where PM Narendra Modi hosted them in September. Xi, 61, married Peng, 52, in 1987. Peng, a renowned singer and folk artiste, first gained fame as a television celebrity.  She had been conferred an honorary major general rank by the People’s Liberation Army. In one of the scenes, the two are seen relaxing sitting on the Gujarati ‘jhoola’, which caught the attention of Chinese public.

The song in the video was sung by two singers from central China’s Henan Province.  Singers said the love story between Xi and Peng has long been admired by Chinese netizens, especially after a photo was released showing the president holding Peng’s hands. The other singer Xu An said, ‘The stereotypical image of a serious political leader has been changed into someone who can connect with people.’
