Chinese English Names in Beijing

Here’s some mostly mindless, and only slightly insensitive anecdotal culture fun. If that other culture stuff is too dense, then this video is for you! =) An American Jewish girl in Beijing explores the Chinese-people-getting-English-names phenomenon. What she uncovers here in 5 minutes is just scratching the surface. (My favourite is Smacker.)

We’ll eventually post some other “Sexy Beijing” shorts where “Su-fei” interviews an elderly couple and a rural couple couple about marriage.
