Picket Fence Vid: WTF IS THIS?!
Beat it! China Open 2009 has an official theme song. If that’s not grand slam desperation, I don’t know what is.
And since I vowed never to listen to Chinese music again when some complete loser of a human being called Jay Chou started dominating the charts, my knowledge of Chinese pop is virtually non-existent. I do understand those two singers are supposed to be famous.
And basically, I wanted to stab myself in the eye after 1:30.
So there it is folks.The official theme song of the China Open: “Proudly Fly”, sung by Yang Kun (guy with Verdasco’s hair) and Jane Zhang, former runner-up in the teenybopper reality TV show “Supergirls“.
Indeed, the China Open held its own version of the “Supergirls”, with public auditions to recruit 90 cheerleaders for the tournament. The cheerleaders, known officially as the “Tennis Babes”, have been busily rehearsing ahead of tournament.
Since Dippy asked for a mascot, why of course the China Open would have a mascot! In fact they have two, because – you know – one would be too ordinary.
All I can say is that tennis balls have never looked happier.
They enlisted the help of a circus for the “tournament carnival” too.
