    Now, that was entertaining, especially since the video finally loaded for me. Their repeitive, side-by-side backflips and front flips were very controlled. It was an excellant performance.

    That video actually makes me sad. These children live in North Korea, and are drilled to perform perfectly under penalty of severe punishment. Nothing joyful in that "parade" at all. It's really upsetting IMO.

    Yes, that is very true, and it is sad. But there is no reason WE can't praise these childrens efforts!
    Oh, and the performance was either a celebration of communism for Kim Jong Ill, or a Korean Children's day performance, according to another board i was reading.
    It's still quite fascinating!

    Those kids would beat the pants off any competitive cheerleading squad in this country.

    does Disney know they're missing? Thanks I'll have nightmares tonight. I'll be roaming the Magic Kingdom and little "small world" children will pop out and chase me down Main Street. Like a international Chucky.

    I did.. but i did not believe it, the way the cards were held, i just couldnt see it logistically working. I mean, the image seemed like a wall, vertical with no slant, it would have a slant if there were children in stands holding cards right? I want to try to find more out about the origins of this video. Really!

    Look at this video. It shows how the card effect is accomplished, as well as footage of their intense training.
