On Sina Weibo:
@长春饭店小奶油: Deeply touching! Long lost twin sisters once again reunited on Topics in Focus. One in Changchun, one in Beijing, and many years later, they show up at the same time on Topics in Focus , one cannot help but sigh that fate is a strange thing.
The above image and video show a woman named Wang Wei, a worker at a Changchun shopping mall, appearing 30 seconds into a CCTV video clip and then another woman named Yao Chunfang, a Beijing city resident, appearing later at the 3:44 mark.
Comments from Sina Weibo:
Hehe, their clothes happen to be the same, and by coincidence so is the background! This is a bit too much of a coincidence, isn’t it! Hehe.
No way, even interviews are faked?
Too fucking fake! The media are all liars/frauds!
CCTV, you’re such an embarrassment.
Beijing and Changchun’s shopping center layout and decorations amazingly are the same, probably a chain store?
CCTV is constantly refreshing my knowledge [challenging what I know to be possible].
CCAV is so lazy, not even changing the clothes, hairstyle, and even the background extras. Look, now you’ve been exposed.
Temporary worker strikes again.
CCTV insulting the audience’s intelligence.
Fuck, even the backdrop is the same, it’s obviously the same person, fucking fuck!
CCAV is the most shameless, always committing fraud themselves yet still [passes itself off as] fighting fraud. Instead of fighting the things the people dislike, they like to pursue and hound the things [the people] do like.
So aside from the Spring Festival Gala, it’s already been N years since I’ve watched CCTV.
Noticed this last night when watching, but thought I had seen it wrong.
Careless, saving money, and being lazy all mixed into one?
Oh, a temporary worker typed the wrong caption.
Stupid cunt CCTV.
Only after reading the comments did I realize this was making fun of CCTV for faking things. Fucking really is so fake. At first I thought it was really that touching.
Hehehehehehe, it wouldn’t cost that much to hire another one, cheapskates!
