VINAI Mock Passersby in Shanghai and Taipei with Impressions

Video clips shared to VINAI’s Instagram Story show them shouting at people on the road.

Insensitive jokes made by VINAI have elicited outrage from members of their fan base. During visits to Shanghai, China and Taipei, Taiwan, the Italian DJ duo recorded video of themselves harassing people on the road by imitating their indigenous language.

As may be understood from the Shanghai clip, the duo (comprised of brothers Allessandro and Andrea Vinai) shouted”ni hao” and also”konnichiwa” at passersby. While both phrases translate to”hello” in English, the latter is in fact Japanese. From the Taipei clip, the brothers can be observed yelling mimicries of a guy on a loudspeaker during an election campaign.

VINAI debuted in 2013 with the launch of”Hands Up” on Time Records. The next year their collaboration with DVBBS branded”Raveology” arrived by way of Spinnin’ Records, exposing them to EDM fans all over the globe.
