I thought the girl might be lip-synching. The vocals sounded too perfect and didn't really fit with her mouth movements.

Now I'm wondering if that cute little boy (Lin Hao) marching with Yao Ming is really who they said he was.
Actually that was a 30 year old man they just super imposed the boy with him.

Given what's getting going on with the Gymnastics Womans team, you might be right.

It was kinda obvious it was CGI when Jar Jar Binks appeared out of one of the explosions.

Same here but I thought it was at least the girls voice

Good grief, why would anyone fake fireworks?

I thought China invented fireworks...right?

I bet their mountaineers didn't really summit Everest either.

Well, it IS just past a month after the Fourth. Maybe they haven't recovered their stocks yet?

Actually, the kid marching with Yao Ming... you know, the kid that had the the Chinese flag that was attached UPSIDE DOWN to the stick while marching for his country in front of the whole stinkin' world speaks volumes about Chinese quality.

You'd think for such a showcase event that they'd do a little more QC.
