Did China create these amazing robot dancers at the Shanghai Disneyland, beating even the Japanese?
Watch the viral clip for yourself, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : China Created Classic Robot Dancers At Shanghai Disneyland!
Here is the video that countless people have been sharing on social media and even on YouTube. It is often paired with a short explanation in (broken) English.
Classic Robot Dancers At Shanghai Disneyland : The Truth
The agility and grace of these classic robot dancers at Shanghai Disneyland is amazing.
The less gullible would point out that it is something you would only expect from professional human dancers, and they would be right.
Fact #1 : That Is A Video Of A CBDF Competition
That is actually a video clip from one of the many competitions organised and broadcast by the CBDF (Chinese Ballroom Dance Federation).
Although we cannot ascertain who the dancers are, you can see the CBDF logo in the background, at 4:06 and 4:41.
No robot made today can match their agility and 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. 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.
