Warren Buffett sings for Chinese New Year: Video

See video

好奇怪, 巴菲特唱歌...yep, that's Warren Buffett, singing on his ukulele.

Warren Buffett, the billionaire chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has become a hit with Chinese audiences for singing on his ukulele for Chinese New Year (January 23). 

Wearing a black sweatshirt saying "Still plays with trains", the world's third-richest man sang "I've been working on the railroad" in a video on China Central Television (CCTV), with a toy train set in the backdrop.

"Your country has accomplished amazing things, and the best is yet to come," he told CCTV. 

The video was played during the run-up to the station's popular New Year gala, which features dance, music, arts, comedy and high-profile performances, attracting around 700 million viewers each year.
