Stuff that Weighs More than Me: Singing In the Rain Group
The autumn rains have arrived in LA and I think it's fair to say that I have rain on the brain. So in my ongoing search for stuff that weighs more than me, I found this little gem--the world's largest umbrella dance group. This large crew of folks in Bath (giggle) Somerset England all came out in the rain to dance to "Singin' in the Rain". Apparently the group prepared for over six months before their big debut at the Bath International Dance Festival. It looks like so much fun! Check out the video below:
While it's difficult to determine EXACTLY how much this group weighs, we do know that we are talking about over 200 dancers complete with raincoats and umbrellas. Here's the stats:
Estimated weight: Over one metric ton
Conclusion: The world's largest umbrella dance troupe weighs more than me. (Oh and, doot doodle doo, doo, doo, doot doodle doodle doo....)
P.S. If you'd like to hear a little more about my own tromping around in the rain, check out my recent post on The Fat Chick Sings over HERE!
