Taiwanese animation studio NMA takes on Prime Minister Wen Jiabao’s “hidden riches”, which exposed in an article by New York Times last week.

This kind of breaking news is usually good material for NMA to make fun with it. Some of the humorous plot we don’t really quite understand, especially when it comes to Apple’s iPhone. According to NYT report, the family business ventures received support from state owned corporations such as the nation’s largest mobile phone operator. China Mobile has formed start-ups with Wen Jiabao’s son. We hope someone can explain to us what the hell is Apple’s gadget related to the political scandal ? Is it some kind of analogy ?

You must watch this super awesome cartoon of “The Bat Man of Shanghai” produced by DC Nation.
