Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun’s first speech in English, delivered at the launch of its latest flagship Mi 4i in New Delhi, India, last month has been remade into a rap song, which has gone viral on social media, according to reports. The video of the song has been viewed over 700,000 times since it was uploaded last week.
“Hello, how are you?” Lei Jun asks the Indian audience, during the event. “India Mi fans, I’m very happy to be in China,” he says, before quickly correcting himself. Lei later announced a free Xiaomi smart wristband for each audience member, and in an attempt to gauge the enthusiasm yelled: “Are you OK? Are you OK?”
Lei's “Are you OK?” turned into a meme overnight on Chinese social media, following which his speech was made into a music video. Soon after, Lei reportedly promised to work on his English in a post over the weekend on his Weibo account.
“Everybody loves good products,” he wrote, according to the Wall Street Journal, as he re-shared a post that included pictures of an Apple store employee in China wearing a Xiaomi fitness tracking Mi Band, along with a screenshot from the hit remix song.
Here is the video that has gone viral on Chinese social media.
