"The classroom restaurant is part of a wave of nostalgia sweeping the
generation of Chinese born between 1980 and 1989, known in China as baling
hou
, or "post-eighties." In late 2010, in the eleven days after an online
video featuring two young men performing Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" was
posted, the forty-two-minute film was viewed more than seven million times,
provoking an outpouring of comments from twenty and thirtysomethings who
confessed to being moved to tears."

Share and enjoy,
