Dumbass

Don’t expect the song of the year. Besides being very entertaining, this video contains the first musical output of chinese superstar Ai Weiwei, a very ironic metal track well beyond the pain threshold. The clip is about his time in detention and shows him being escorted and searched by prison guards, shaving his head, applying lipstick and donning a dress. Song by Ai Weiwei with music by Zuoxiao Zuzhou. Cinematography by Christopher Doyle.
