Apparently, videos of a group of performers in Pikachu costumes doing a highly coordinated dance are a thing.
However, this video from South Korea quickly takes a turn for the strange as a Pikachu's costume begins to deflate right as the dance begins.
A group of men then appear to drag the Pikachu off the stage, pushing the performer through the crowd of performers and off-stage.
The poor Pikachu then TRIES TO REJOIN THE DANCE, but she's quickly pulled away by the same frantic group of men.
So what is going on here? I suspect that the show's organizers didn't want children to witness the horror of a deflating Pikachu. But I can't help that this scene looks like something out of "The Matrix," with a group of Mr. Smiths swarming a Pikachu version of Neo.
