A 1997 Japanese song has plagiarized our 2010 World Expo theme song!
Japan is so shameless, actually plagiarizing our 2010 World Expo theme song!
Don’t believe it? Compare the two songs below:
This is also spreading on the popular Chinese social network Kaixin001.
Comments from KDS:
Japanese people are very shameless~
LZ knows too much.
Having never heard the World Expo theme song, what kind of person am I?
Who plagiarized who? LZ, figure it out and then report back.
[Responding to the above comment]
You are not too suited for going on the internet.
Japan has always been a low-class country that only knows how to plagiarize. Aside from plagiarism, what else can they produce?
The S/B Hui jokes are just beginning.
And the Americans plagiarized our Haibao [The 2010 Shanghai World Expo mascot]!
[When Haibao was revealed, a Chinese person noticed that it looked like a cartoon character on the old American television show, "Growing Pains". That character was Gumby.]
I listened to it closely several times, and it is basically the exact same, except for the 2010 being played/sung slower only.
When the Japanese go visit the World Expo and hear this song…sigh, it will be so embarrassing.
In Japan, Mayo Okamoto [the Japanese singer] is a relatively well-known singer, many people know her [so this will be a big scandal for her].
Will the Japanese news broadcast it?
Sigh. Such a loss of face. Holding the World Expo just once and can’t even make a song, might as well go die.
Cupware, once again we are going to be despised by Little Japan, knowing that Japanese people are the most enthusiastic towards the World Expo.
Too shameless…truly too shameless, even riding a time machine to 2010 to steal the World Expo theme song…I truly can’t watch any further…
2010 April 18 Update: Use of this theme song has been “temporarily suspended” by the government.
Shameless time-traveling Japanese girls. chinaSMACK personals.
