I wonder if this is simply pandering to the what the public wants?

Example, portrayal of PLA operators in China movies tend to be lots of emotional shouting. Western operators tend to be protrayed as calmer, cool at all times. In the past, western SOF was all spray and pray and shouting but it seems that either taste has evolved or the narrative is being changed.

Maybe the Chinese narrative will "catch up" and be more refined or maybe it won't because this is what they want ...

But I do agree that at the higher level where there is better budgets and outside art direction, eg. recruitment videos which have commercial input, those seem to be done by agencies that have the license to go off script. Some of the recruitment videos I've seen are really top notch (eg. the 2018 one).
I don't expect them to increase the budget for these promotional videos anytime soon. The PLA and all branches with the exception of maybe a few have more than enough recruits wanting to join. Even with years of subpar ads, they still get many people who are interested.

Good problem to have I guess.

I hope they carry on in the direction of some of these past recruiting videos. To an extent, the type of videos that is put out attracts different personalities to sign up. Over time, they will form the core of your military and determine the culture and professionalism of the organisation across all ranks.

Thanks, fantastic video. I'm going to embed the video here.

We see 喻强墙's name at 13:08. Based on his description he is a tactical shooting instructor for Northern Theater Command. He shows his face earlier in the video starting 4:20. Starting 16:00 is when he is dressed in black.
