As K-pop megastar Psy brings his invisible-horse-riding dance to the UN, elsewhere another celebrated Asian artist is turning to "Gangnam Style" to spread a political message, though of a very different sort.

Noted Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei has released his very own parody of the earworm-du-jour, but with a subtle twist that expresses his well-established disdain for Chinese censorship.

Ai's version of the song is called "草泥马 style" or "Grass Mud Horse (Caonima) style" — Grass Mud Horse being the popular Chinese Internet meme that allows users to get away with saying "fuck your mother" without being censored, and, as such, has become a "mascot" of sorts for anti-censorship activists.


Keep fucking that mother, Ai.
