A Troupe Of 540 Dancing Robots Is The Best Way To Celebrate The Lunar New Year

A Troupe of 540 Dancing Robots Is the Best Way to Celebrate Chinese New Year

Video: There is no better way to celebrate the passing of time than with a gratuitous display of synchronised dancing. Scratch that: Make the dancers robots and add in some drones, too. That should do it.

This video is a clip taken from China Central Television’s Spring Festival Gala which aired this weekend. Shanghaiist refers to the show — which included 540 dancing robots and 29 synchronised drones overhead — as “the absolute highlight”. It’s probably right.
