Does Shanghai Disneyland have an amazing Chinese robot dancer whose technical ability surpasses even the Japanese?
Watch the viral video clip for yourself, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Chinese Robot Dancer @ Shanghai Disneyland!
Here is the video that countless people have been sharing on social media and their microblogs. It is paired with a short explanation in both English and Chinese.
The Classical dancer in this video is not a real living person but a newly constructed robot!
The video, a product of Shanghai Disney, is only a five minutes show but it would take more than four hours queuing up to purchase a ticket which costs 499 yuan per person .
The robot is entirely Chinese made and its technical level has surpassed those of Japan. This video is indeed worthy of watching.
Chinese Robot Dancer @ Shanghai Disneyland : The Truth
The agility of the “Shanghai Disneyland robot dancer” in the video which lasts over 4 minutes is amazing.
The less gullible would point out that it is something one would only expect from a professional human dancer, and they would be right.
Fact #1 : That Is A Video Of The 4th CCTV Dance Competition
That is actually a video clip from the 4th CCTV dance competition in 2007.
The so-called robot dancer is actually a professional dancer called Qin Xi, who performed the “Dream of a Spring Girl” dance for that segment of the dance competition.
That’s why her dance is so amazing – no robot made today can match her grace.
Fact #2 : 499 Yuan Was The Entry Price To Shanghai Disneyland
The fake story claimed that the ticket to watch this performance costs 499 Yuan – about US$73 / £55 / RM303. That would be ridiculously exorbitant for a single show.
In truth, that was the cost of an entry ticket to the Shanghai Disneyland when it first opened in February 2016.
Since 6 June 2018, it has been priced at 399 Yuan (off-peak), 575 Yuan (peak) and 665 Yuan (peak holiday).
Fact #3 : Disneyland Does Not Charge Extra To Watch Certain Shows
Anyone who has been to Disneyland knows that the entry fee is pricey. That’s because it covers all rides and shows inside Disneyland.
You only need to pay for food and drinks, and arcade games, like The Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade.
Or if you opt to purchase Disney Fastpasses (Fastpass, FastPass+, MaxPass) to bypass long queues at popular rides or shows.
Otherwise, all rides and shows are free to enjoy once you enter Disneyland.
Why Would Someone Create This Fake Story?
With China’s aggressive foreign stance in recent years, it is not uncommon to see such fake stories being created and shared.
Some believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image overseas.
Others believe the many fake stories are being created to drown out the negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea.
Whatever the reasons may be, it is our duty as global citizens to stop the proliferation of such fake stories.
