Creepy, cute or crazy? Strange Chinese learning videos by iamxiaoli

iamxiaoli has posted a series of videos on youtube that teach basic mandarin but are quite bizarre.  What do you think?

Yeah they made me laugh and I like the creativity.  I'm still not entirely sure how much of the creepy is intentional vs incidental but who cares.  They had an impact on the viewer and engagement is too often ignored in language learning.  Go iamxiaoli go!

i don't know what to say, definitely unique. seems like she has put a lot of effort into those videos though.

Yeah man. That totally goes way up high on the creepy crazy scale. Woaaaah. However, I really like how in the 1st video they convey most of the meaning without even resorting to English. That's pretty nifty. Just reminds me of how much body language plays a role in language.
