Dissident artist Ai Weiwei has criticised the Chinese government for removing his take on the Gangnam Style video from websites in the country.
In a video posted on YouTube and Chinese websites, the 55-year-old sports a neon-pink T-shirt, black jacket and dark sunglasses and energetically mimics the dance moves made famous by South Korean rapper PSY, whose original video has become an internet sensation.
China Correspondent Angus Walker reports:
He called the video 'Caonima' Style. 'Caonima' means 'grass, mud, horse,' in Mandarin which sounds very similar to a strong curse, and has become a symbol of the online community's defiance of internet censors which remove expletives and other content considered sensitive.
Weiwei and his colleagues uploaded the video to Chinese sites like 'Tudou', an equivalent of the blocked site YouTube, but found that hours later it had been removed.
Weiwei, an internationally renowned artist and China's most high-profile dissident, has regularly clashed with the country's authorities.
Last month, a court upheld a 2.4 million dollar tax evasion fine against him, ending a long legal battle with the authorities but paving the way for him to be jailed if he does not pay.
