Liú Shìchāo 刘世超, the farmer from rural Hebei who has gone viral on Twitter for developing his own style of what Deadspin dubbed “stunt drinking,” is doing more for Chinese soft power than the billions the Party wastes on CGTN and the China Daily.

Using translation software, he tweeted:

I grew up in a rural village. when I was a child, I did farm work like irrigation, sewing seeds, ploughing (using cattle), harvest (by reaphook) with my parents and brother. It was hard, but I was happy. I played with my little friends, many many interesting things. I miss them.

My foreign friends, tell me something about your childhood. Do you miss that time and your childhood friends? I miss them. I miss those simple happiness. Good night.
