how do none of you know this: this was an advertisement for an opera based on the monkey king/son goku epic. the animator of the gorillaz worked on it as well, several portions are animated. and yes, MAYBE it had to do with the olympics.

W00t Sun Wukong - Great Sage, Equal of Heaven FTW! The others are Zhu Bajie (the pig) Sha Wujing (the third guy), all of whom can be found in the Chinese story Xiyouji (Journey to the West), otherwise known as Saiyuki in Japanese. I suspect Hindus viewed Sun Wukong as an incarnation of Hanuman, their own monkey god.

And it's in Mandarin Chinese. Cantonese is mostly only spoken by the people of Hong Kong.

I like that. I wish I could live in the UK (or start watching TV, for that matter) so I could watch this all the time. Love the animation, love the music.

That monkey's going to get seriously annoying, quickly.

The music in the video is already doing my head in! The BBC keep playing it.

Maddog... you're showing us old fogies up here on IAB. Indeed I do remember... *wipes misty tear from eye*

Here's the song. Kicks in around 0:57

I thought that it was worldwide, not just BBC but yes it is quite cool. When I saw it on the BBC I was a bit confused at first haha

I wonder if it was in Mandarin or Cantonese? Lovely animation, and very action packed. I liked it.
