About

Red Army Orchestra (Chinese: 红军版 ; Pinyin: *Hóng Jūn Băn) is a series of videos that use edited clips of the original Red Army Orchestra synced to popular mainstream music.

Origin

The source video material for the Red Army Orchestra remixes comes from the Long March Song Cycle (Chinese: 长征组歌) video, released in 1976:

On June 18, 2010, the first Red Army Orchestra video parody was uploaded to Chinese video-sharing website Tudou by user 小智是猪. It is synced to Wavin’ Flag, the official 2010 FIFA World Cup song by K’naan.

The original video would receive only 15,000 views. However, after July 2, 2010, the fad really took off when user 地球救济 uploaded a Red Army Orchestra video to Tudou synced to Michael Jackson’s hit single, Beat It. This video and copies of it (2 copies with 5 million+ views and 2 copies with 500,000+ views), would reach over 11 million views on Tudou, its popularity boosted when it was posted on the popular Chinese forum, MOP.
