What are Chinese video viewers watching? “Her First Time”
她第一次做鸡 can currently be found on Youtube-esque sites across Virtual China. Since being posted on Nov. 12 it’s been viewed over 444,444 times on Mofile, one of the top sites, for instance.
It opens with a young couple and a voice-over in a high-pitched operatic style:
Young people today, love is sweet
but buying a house is beyond their reach educating their child, beyond their reach
caring for elders, beyond their reach
buying a car, beyond their reach
The young couple is visited by a magic “artist” who shows them the way to get rich: 做鸡, which in spoken Mandarin Chinese sounds like “be a prostitute.” The young man suggests that his girlfriend do it, and she reluctantly agrees. Together they visit the magical artist, who invites her into his room, leaving her boyfriend in the waiting room. “Oh my god,” we hear from behind the door (in English and in Chinese, by the way). The boyfriend finally can’t take it anymore so he batters away at the door, and when he finally gets in he finds…you’ll have to see for yourself. It’s a pun that you knew was coming.
It says the clip was made by the Video Spoof Studio 影视恶搞工作室 for 500 yuan (about $80). However, a Baidu search for the Studio takes you to the VideoDVNet, a website run by the Video Spoof Studio, but on which I can’t locate “Her First Time”.
