Chinese president Xi Jinping is getting increasing exposure as a cartoon character with his latest animated self playing whack-a-mole.
Released over the weekend, the clip from the Communist Party of China is the of propaganda videos aimed to appeal to a younger generation less likely to be enticed by the rousing "red songs" of yore.
In his latest cartoon incarnation, Xi is shown cracking down on corrupt officials with a mallet as the narrator lists the officials who have been targeted – former state security chief Zhou Yongkang and political star Bo Xilai among them.
Both Zhou and Bo were once high fliers in the establishment who have since been sentenced to life for corruption and abuse of power.
The five in the cartoon were featured in tiger costumes in a reference to Xi's drive to crack down on both "tigers" or powerful leaders and "flies" i.e. lowly bureaucrats.
The video also features a cartoon version of "coolest foreigner" former U.S. secretary of state Henry Kissinger, praising Xi's anti-graft efforts in Mandarin—complete with a foreign accent.
