Welcome to the pilot of our discussion show! Here you will hear our take on the week's most viral topic and video in China and answer any questions you have for us in #askOTGW
Right now the number one news story on Weibo is of a Chinese teen who carved graffiti in the 3500 year-old Luxor Temple. The 15 year-old wrote "Ding Jinhao was here" on the ancient artifact. The image of the vandalism was retweeted over 90,000 times on Weibo and netizens are outraged. Netizens were able to track the offender in one day and even hack into his high school website. Here is the full story on CNN: http://e.ntd.tv/10DdOOZ
This is an older video that resurfaced in the past week on Youku. In less than a week it has gathered over 3 million views. A seemingly drunk motorcyclist hitting every single vehicle of thing in his path. Original video: http://e.ntd.tv/13endyz

Asians don't care about African Heritage, Lineage or Culture! They DON'T even like black ppl. He should have been BEAT WITH A ROCK! Y'all actually are commentating & making jokes by even doing this segment.

Peasants from the remote Chinese regions have been stealing bricks from the earliest GreatWall. They are not the fancy areas we see on TV made of stones. They are from the earlier constructions made of bricks.
WAIT A SECONDBU GUYS ARE MAKING LIGHT OF THIS FUCKING DEFACING A ANCIENT HISTORY THAT FUCKING SHOULD GET HIS HEAD CHOP OFF IN FRONT OG HIS FUCKING FAMILY AND IT BE TELEVISED ALL OVER THE WORL AS AN EXAMPLE
trust me, I've been to the Great Wall, *p&p* (the disgusting ones) around the corners PLUS different style of names around, Chinese names I should add, craved on the bricks. it was gross it was super smelly.
+Frank Scott Watch movies that are in English with subtitles in your language. After watching a few movies, some words/phrases will start to stick and you'll start to get used to grammar/sentence structure bit more :)
Egypt was also conquered by Nubia. 25th dynasty
Egypt origins stem Ta SETI (Nubia)
Nubians also stopped advances from Rome and wasn’t invaded by Assyria unlike Egypt. And militarily, the Nubians were known to be feared and skilled archers.
Stop being ignorant, both were two powerful cousin nations.
sakurakou2009 well genetics prove your sayings wrong.
80% of Egypt population is north African. And 17% middle eastern. 17% Arabs mostly if you break it down, Arabs live in the Asiatic part of Egypt which is sinai peninsula. And nubians aren't the only ancient Egyptians. Also now days Egypt population is direct descendant of Egyptians.
On the other hand Arabs are middle eastern, the Egyptians aren't Arabs. but Egypt is Centre of learning the Arabic language.
It's very very impossible to change the genes of a certain group for 1000 years. Slight changes would happen with settlers but in no way it could affect millions.
1) I think the kid is stupid, whatever nationality he is, Chinese? However, there are also American teenagers that use laser pointers on pilots, jeopardizing life of hundreds, or Russian teenagers bombing in international marathons. Why dont you talk about those instead? 2) Western people already have deep discrimination and racism on Chinese/ Asian people, you guys are further worsening that image.
All I wanna say is that's ntg to do with genes. Genes dont affect anyone's behavior at all. Genes do not control what's right/wrong. It's education and the society they're living in made who they are, I mean if these ppl were brought up in a more educated environment they wouldn't have pooped in the public. Osama wouldn't have been a terrorist if he were to be raised & educated in a place that's against violence. Because everyone is the same, everyone starts from a baby & all baby is pure soul.
You lost me at your suggesting the tour guide framed the Chinese kid. Looked more like typical grasping at straws to avoid accountability than an attempt at humor.
Remember the U.S. teenager spray painter in Singapore, punished by caning by a martial artist and the popular cries from the U.S. populace that we should do that here? Incidentally, I have lived in both Hong Kong and Singapore... but not Egypt, so can not speak to their tour guides trustworthiness. ;)
I like it. Enjoyed your commentary and opinions. If only Mike would speak up a bit. He sounded too soft and I couldn't really hear him especially when Carmen and Dan are also speaking or laughing. Thanks and keep it up.
The pooping thing is exactly why a lot of HK'ers don't like people from the mainland! I asked my friend that immigrated to the US from HK and she said that HK people don't like Mainlanders because they're unsanitary. :/
Hi guys, I subscribed and love your channel. BTW the motor cycle guy, let me tell you, All these guys do not have insurance, and that's the reason why he try, try, try to get away as fast as he could.......... but goodness me!!!
Both, especially since I'm comparing it to your skits and older viral videos, because originally the reason I subscribed to you guys in the first place is because I thought your videos are really funny and fun to watch. Unless...if your purpose is focus on more of a serious discussion, then this video definitely accomplishes that purpose! In addition, I do like the answering questions section in it.
I liked it ok, but a little slow and boring compared to your others. Also a little too long. I liked the topics, but maybe a faster pace, more editing? More in the style of your "comment on the comments" videos might work better.
I like this I like this, I was smiling the whole time :).
and I'm studying environmental engineering now Carmen! I suddenly feel like we have more in common, kinda not really haha.
Keep up the good work guys!
I like that you guys are trying some new things out. I agree with Jorge Huang that it needs some more motion or camera angles/cuts.
Also I just wanted to say that I really hope you guys can keep the show family friendly, i.e. no swearing and content that is at least suitable for a 13 year old (in terms of appropriateness).
Keep up the good work!
I am glad you guys openly discuss this openly. As an ABC (American Born Chinese), I see how Chinese often suffer from "communal guilt" whereas Westerners do not. Yes, a Chinese defaced the temple of Luxor, but I do not think all 1 billion plus of us should suffer the same guilt and shame the offender and offender's parents are experiencing.
I fully support couch talk OTGW!
I love the couch talk ♥ It's interesting to hear explanations and opinions about a topic that we didn't know much about :) The length of the video is perfect! Hi Mike!^^ And "#askOTGW" is a really good idea =)
Ugh I'm Chinese American but im equally ashamed in this Chinese kid. Seriously, who in their right mind would do that kind of thing? And the moped guy lol made my day. Serves him right-there r too many hit and run drivers. I'm glad one of them got caught :3 (hopefully he didn't die tho) D:
