The English in the 19th century were the masters of the silly. (Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, Gilbert and Sullivan). They have nothing on modern Japanese.

Coincidentally 1966 was also the first time I saw this clip.  I hear tell there's a man that performs the various dances across different time points in history as well.

Or as we call it, Marching Band.

Has anyone mentioned yet that this has been around for centuries and is called 'marching'?

Marching band
Every dance team
Military formations

Yeah, this has been done for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and it's not more impressive because they're Asian, Gizmodo.

Definitely silly. But not in this class:

That, my friends, is where the silly bar is now.
