This scene has become a hot search,”Head scratcher”、“Confused brother“Wait for the audience to become popular overnight.
Since 1983, the CCP government has organized the “Spring Festival Gala” through the official media CCTV, with the intention of brainwashing the mainland people through political propaganda in the form of art. However, the “Spring Festival Gala” is unexpectedly complained by the people every year. This year, the “prominent” performance of the five amateurs on CCTV became popular all over the country, far surpassing the promotion of the “Spring Festival Gala” itself. On January 23, there are topics such as “The audience of the Spring Festival Gala is funnier than the Spring Festival Gala”, “5 amateurs who steal the spotlight in the Spring Festival Gala: the confused brother who scratches his head”, “Smiling for 19 seconds, the group performer is popular: I always laugh like this” and other topics On the trending search.
On the 23rd, the “Media Group Entertainment Ji An Ning” jointly operated by many senior entertainment journalists in China pointed out that for the “large-scale serial drama (Spring Festival Gala)” that only broadcasts one episode a year, many viewers this year think it is too boring, and many netizens even expressed that , what looks better than the “Spring Festival Gala” is the live auditorium.
A Weibo certified as an “original video blogger” also said in a video, “…the only disadvantage is that the audience at the scene has a lower level compared to previous audiences. They don’t know how to laugh when they should laugh. I don’t know how to cry when I’m crying. Some audience members even wore earphones at the scene, and some frowned and rolled their eyes… They didn’t cooperate with the performance of the actors.”
It can be seen from the video and pictures posted on the Internet that at the performance site, a man in a gray shirt first sighed, then fiddled with his hair and scratched his head in a low voice. Not only did his face lack any expression of joy, showing a feeling of helplessness, but the girl who was applauding beside him was also expressionless and powerless.

Before the New Year’s Eve bell rang, the young male dancer behind the host Ren Luyu also attracted the attention of the audience. In the host’s 3-minute summary, he kept smiling with his teeth bared, as if his face had stiffened from laughing.

The outside world also noticed that compared with this kind of posing smile, more audiences feel that they are absent. For example, a video shows that a man in the auditorium said to the woman in black beside him, “Stop playing with your phone, the camera is coming…”
Someone also posted a picture of the scene on CCTV and said, “Look at the expressionless faces of each one. Is this a memorial service?”
Some netizens said, “This year’s language class can be said to be the worst year in history. Fortunately, I don’t have to stare at the TV now, and I still have a mobile phone to play…”
Another netizen wrote, “I watched the rebroadcast of the Spring Festival Gala. Compared with the first time, I actually laughed, so embarrassed. The talk show was a complete failure. There is not a single stalk!”
Another netizen pointed out, “Over the past decade or so, the more and more boring Spring Festival Gala has confirmed the retrogression of culture and aesthetics. Without the era and reality, the literary and artistic creations that have been overhead have made the Spring Festival Gala more and more like a country cloaked The rotting corpse of literature and art of the will. He has no life, although he sings the glory of the world, he is still dead. The literature and art that grows from the rotten land, no matter how gorgeous it is, is just an empty body bag without soul.”
There are also many people who lament that the streets are deserted during the New Year this year. Many people buy flowers not to celebrate the New Year, but to pay homage to their relatives who died of the epidemic. In the ICU, queuing up, entering the crematorium, loading the urns. The crematorium waited several kilometers for the hearse to send relatives… But the CCTV Spring Festival Gala celebrated the so-called “great achievements of the Communist Party, a peaceful and prosperous world“….”
