It has since garnered over 5K likes and over 1,400 retweets.
The description of the original video reads, “This is a simple Shang-Chi fight scene. I am still learning VFX, so it’s not that good. If you like it, give it a like!” The video recreates a scene in which Shang-Chi and his father Wenwu battle it out.

Wow. And all these kids have is a cellphone and a hand-me-down basic laptop. Not just the editing, the angling, the expressions! They NEED to be discovered. Help spread the word. https://t.co/BwdzGwW5zo

Give them free internet, laptop, proper training, global skills, bank accounts, tax lawyer & export their skills. Enough of sending plumbers, drivers, electricians, masons and/or chefs abroad. Digi-skills are the future. Every village & town should be connected to export market. https://t.co/dnllZ0FM0C
