Man, they are good.

This video comes from Chinese TV, and features real workers from the government's Cyberspace Administration singing an original song dedicated to how great and noble their job is.

That job: to censor the Internet and curb free speech for the Chinese people. China has the world's most sophisticated online censorship operation, nicknamed the Great Firewall. It's so thorough, in fact, that this video has been disappearing from sources all across the Internet. Nobody knows why they decided they don't want people seeing it anymore, but enjoy it while you can. It's strangely catchy, and it ought to be. The Chinese government went all out on it: the music was arranged by pop icon Zhao Jialin, and the lyrics were written by Wang Pingjiu, who was also behind the Beijing Olympics anthem.
