Zhang Xu (”Nick in the House”), a comedic vlogger from northeast China, recently put together a video  to showcase different cultural and ethnic stereotypes from a distinctly Chinese perspective.
Mostly in English with Chinese subtitles, Zhang’s video blends different accents, pop culture references, and dramatic background music as he portrays a caricature, respectively, of a person from Japan, Korea, India, Britain, France, Italy, America, Russia and China, each trying to introduce their own culture or country to a foreigner.
Offended yet? In just four days, Nick’s video has received more than 17,000 comments and 500,000 views.
