Clothing stores and restaurants in China are really good at using popular songs to lure passers by, which often proves effective. Now they have been joined by the People's Liberation Army.

In an attempt to attract young people, the Defense Ministry has posted on its website a music video showing new recruits walking in camp, fighter jets maneuvering in the sky, tanks rolling during the Tian'anmen parade and an aircraft carrier sailing the ocean.

The video features several groups of male and female soldiers dancing to Little Apple, a song produced by Chinese pop duo the Chopstick Brothers that has been popular with young people and those who like dancing in public squares.
