As a way to recruit young people to join the military, the Chinese PLA decided to employ a new strategy of recruitment by creating a rap-style hip-hop video that includes phrases such as “Kill! Kill! Kill!”
The name of the song is titled “Battle Declaration” and is a step-up in aggressiveness to recruit young people to join the military.
The action-packed video starts off with the words, “There are always missions in soldiers’ minds, enemies in their eyes, responsibilities on their shoulders, and passions in their hearts.”
“There could be a war at any time. Are you ready for that?” the voice continues.
The video shows soldiers training and taking part in exercises as well as missiles being fired off and fighter jets flying through the air. While this is happening, hip-hop music is being played in the background.
A PLA publicity expert told China Daily that the video was created to express strength and military prowess.
“The PLA is no longer the poorly equipped one that they saw from TV dramas, but a powerful force as modernized as the United States military,” he said.
