A kid from Baotou, Inner magnolia has become an immediate internet sensation after mooning China’s incoming premier, Li Keqiang, on national television.
The unexpected event took place on Sunday when as Mr Li visited the impoverished areas of Baotou, during a three day tour intended to demonstrate the government’s will to support and help the poor.
During the tour Mr. Li made an unplanned visit to the home of a local farmer. The visit is reported to be so unexpected that the farmer’s son was sleeping half-naked in the room and he apparently asked his son to hide in the cupboard.
As the cameras rolled during the interview, the toddler pushed the cupboard’s door, jumped out and hid under the blanket while the TV cameras caught the entire scene, including the boy’s uncovered bare bottom.
The kid’s naked appearance was broadcasted across China, giving him the nickname “guang pigu nanhai” which means ‘the bare-bottomed boy’.
Vice Premier Li Keqiang will become China’s Premier in March. Mr. Li was given the No. 2 spot in China’s new Communist Party leadership during the 18th Party Congress.
