Everyone has a favourite "Gangnam Style" cover video. This is ours.

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is a controversial figure in his native country, to put it mildly. An outspoken activist, he was jailed by the Chinese Government from April to June last year for speaking out against the government. But he also produces quite beautiful and thought-provoking art.

If you've never heard of him before, you should find out more — he's a fascinating figure.

And now he's gone and done this. It's utterly magnificent.

Thanks to Jessica for the heads-up on the story!
