The Great Beijing Olympics Fakery
They faked the giant footprints fireworks and even used a fake singer. Watch the video above. It seems that the Chinese will do almost anything to make their Olympics opening ceremony the grandest of them all.
The giant footprints fireworks were one of the highlights of the opening ceremony. China insists that the fireworks were there. Watch this video of the footprints shot from the ground. But they decided to insert computer generated imagery so that the giant footprints looked awesome to the millions watching on TV.
Then they also revealed that Lin Miaoke, the Chinese darling that sang at the opening ceremony was lip syncing. Watch this video of her "performance". The voice wasn't ever hers! It belongs to another girl named Yang Peiyi. How bad is Lin Miaoke's voice? Maybe this bad. Ah no wonder. Yang Peiyi was the original choice but the Chinese decided that she wasn't cute enough to be shown to the world and thus turned to Lin Miaoke. Poor girl.
After watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics live on TV, I was quick to praise the Chinese for a spectacular show. Now I'm disappointed and angry that the Chinese have fooled me and millions of others watching on TV. I wonder what else did the Chinese fake?
