Chinese Authorities Ban Ai Weiwei’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Video

Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei is at it again, using art to express dissent.

Only this time, he’s made people scratch their heads.

Ai has gone ‘Gangnam Style’, using the viral video hit performed by South Korean rap sensation PSY.

Ai Weiwei’s has recorded a video of himself dancing ‘Gangnam Style’— you know, mimicking horse-riding and lassoing.

And it stumped Chinese censors… for a bit, until they decided to block Internet access to the video.

The video’s title itself is very controversial.
