Ai Weiwei – Dumbass

ai wei wei dumbass video still

Am I the only one just discovering that Ai Weiwei made rock video about his 2011 81 day illegal detainment? If you don’t speak Chinese and like me would like to know what’s being said – join the club. I’d put the lyrics here but Weiwei’s popping off the f bombs on this one. So as not to offend the sensitive, everyone just go to weiwei’s site where you’ll find the lyrics in English & Chinese.

What else need be said… just watch. Oh wait…check out this NYT article with weiwei thought’s on the video.
