(The name of my favorite British TV show, which explores all things Japanese.) In Japan, a large percentage of the population enjoys engaging in what's known as "cosplay" (short for costume play). In other words, they dress up like their favorite manga, anime, or video game characters. (It doesn't seem quite as odd in Japan.)

In this video, dozens of people who met online in a cosplayer chat room gather together on a Tokyo street for a spontaneous syncronized dance routine. You've got to appreciate their professionalism. Of course, it all ends very quickly once the police arrive. But it's truly fantastic while it lasts.

Hi there,

Most video sites have a box labeled "embed" (or something like that). Copy and paste what you find into your blog. It's that easy!

If you find a video on another site, just click on it, and it should take you back to the source. (Youtube or one of the others.)
