@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 [泪], one cannot help but sigh that fate is a strange thing.

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.

兰竹娟媚cindy:

Truly touching. [吃惊]

Tony_Lee0326:

No way, even interviews are faked?

爱色影的文艺青年:

Too fucking fake! The media are all liars/frauds!

寻羊肉的胖子:

CCTV, you’re such an embarrassment.

普润文雅:

Beijing and Changchun’s shopping center layout and decorations amazingly are the same, probably a chain store? [偷笑]

画落尘:

CCTV is constantly refreshing my knowledge [challenging what I know to be possible].

angela梦想在别处:

CCAV is so lazy, not even changing the clothes, hairstyle, and even the background extras. Look, now you’ve been exposed. [鄙视]

陆安火山:

Temporary worker strikes again.

希霖:

CCTV insulting the audience’s intelligence. [偷笑]

陆安火山:

Fuck, even the backdrop is the same, it’s obviously the same person, fucking fuck!

myboo宝宝:

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.

简单快乐的熊:

So aside from the Spring Festival Gala, it’s already been N years since I’ve watched CCTV.

只为tvb:

Noticed this last night when watching, but thought I had seen it wrong.

资深美女56:

Careless, saving money, and being lazy all mixed into one?

会种地的妖怪:

Oh, a temporary worker typed the wrong caption.

大方打发点:

Stupid cunt CCTV.

本本-benben:

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.

哄哄周敏:

Hehehehehehe, it wouldn’t cost that much to hire another one, cheapskates!
