Birthdays, brevity, and booty-poppin'

In case you haven’t been keeping up with all the awesome Chinglish videos, we compiled them into one place.

 Last month was playwright David Henry Hwang’s birthday, and at Berkeley Rep we’re much too cool for birthday cake. (Not true. Cake is always encouraged.) Instead, the cast of Chinglish made David a special birthday video, complete with four different languages and some great chinglish (a fifth language?).


Brevity is the soul of wit, and our 15-second Chinglish TV spot is witty as hell. Bonus points to anybody who can figure out what awesome TV show inspired the style. (Hint: the new season is coming to Netflix next year.)


And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. (Or skipped ahead to. You know who you are.) No introduction could do justice to what you are about to see, so we won’t bother. Enjoy the booty poppin.’


Yea. That actually happened.
