If you’re starting to feel left out of the big military charade parade that’s shutting down Beijing’s shops, airports and smog (not to mention iPhone users’ VPNs), now’s your chance to join in with all that jingoistic mass regimentation courtesy of one particularly patriotic dancing auntie, who not only choreographed an impressive dance routine to the song “Xi Dada, Who Everyone Praises" – an ode to Xi Jinping – she even made a demonstration video breaking down all the moves, so you can learn too:

The routine she created isn’t just any run-of-the-mill public square dance that you might catch in your local park; this woman has clearly got into the spirit of the September 3 ‘anti-fascist’ anniversary, donning army fatigues and duplicating herself to create that PLA look.

And just in case you want to know what you’re grooving to, we translated the lyrics:

Daddy Xi, Daddy Xi

In every street they sing his praises

He seeks happiness for all

He speaks the truth for the common people


Daddy Xi, Daddy Xi

Everyone loves him

Filled with energy and courage

He attacks tigers and flies


Daddy Xi, Daddy Xi

All the Chinese people support him

He’s great at military strategy

And serves China with red-bellied devotion


Daddy Xi, Daddy Xi

People of the world love and respect him

All nations living peacefully together

Striding to develop together
