Comments from Youku:





Apple can buy this and use it as an advertisement in the mainland.


Just a viral MV made using a 3Gs.


This set of equipment is not cheap~~ This hinges on the iPhone over 100,000 applications to produce this kind of music.


It’s real! It has already been verified on television! Extremely amazing! There has long been people abroad making music with the iPhone, even creating music bands! [This is] really not bad~~~


This video has already been confirmed by the news, it is an original, made by herself, and don’t underestimate the iPhone’s effectiveness~


No matter what people say, at least the singing is not bad, right? Don’t always talk about whether or not it was made with an iPhone. Just enjoy listening to it.

This girl is called PixieTea (real name is Zhang Xuanyan) and you can find her Sina blog here. Some photographs of her:

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
