My CCTV Debut

December 16th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Before the Olympics started, Olympic volunteers were newsworthy, especially ones learning to write “I love China” in traditional calligraphy.  While going through my rigorous training leading up to the Olympics at the basketball Cube, my opportunistic supervisor jumped on the chance to get her two trainees on tv and in front of who knows how many Chinese viewers.  As she’d instruct us, we would repeat in Mandarin “I love China.”  The video isn’t the best quality because I was using a Flip Cam to record a tv screen.  This aired on CCTV’s Olympic Channel.

Somewhat nauseating, mostly funny.  Here’s the clip for your viewing pleasure.
