China's Communist Party really, really wants everyone to know how much foreigners in China love President Xi Jinping. 

People's Daily, the Communist Party's official newspaper, released a video Tuesday called "Who is Xi Dada?" The clip features students from all corners of the globe -- including Cameroon, Vanuatu, France, Japan and the United States -- giving their very favorable impressions of the Chinese president.

Students featured in the video describe Xi as a "wise and resolute president" and "a very humble leader." Some said he was like an uncle, while others described him as a big brother or even father-like figure.

The students also didn't shy away from comments on Xi's looks: A student from Chicago revealed that many people in China refer to him as "Winnie the Pooh," and a student from California said he was "handsome" and "super charismatic." 

"His face is a little bit cute," an Austrian added. "Everybody looks at him and they just like him."

"If my future husband is like him, I will be very fortunate," a Korean student said in Chinese.

"Xi Dada," which can be roughly translated to "Big Uncle Xi," is the country's term of affection for its president. In November 2014, a group of musicians even wrote a song dedicated to Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, named "Xi Dada Loves Peng Mama."

Some online expressed cynicism towards the video. "How much were they paid?" the video's most popular comment on YouTube, which as of Wednesday afternoon had over 40 "thumbs up."

Some Asia pundits and Hong Kong-based journalists also took their disbelief to Twitter:

The Sept. 22 video comes amid a string of new videos that Chinese media outlets have produced in anticipation of Xi's U.S. visit. On Tuesday, China Xinhua News released a video featuring Americans applauding U.S.-Chinese cooperation. And on Sept. 19, People's Daily aired videos in which people in Washington, D.C., and Seattle eagerly welcomed Xi to the U.S. 

Xi arrived in the U.S. on Tuesday. While he's here, some of the issues that may come up with President Barack Obama include human rights, cyber warfare, economic turmoil in China and tension over the South China Sea.
