Human LCD Screen Wows Soccer Fans in South Korea

Posted on December 28, 2010

Never underestimate the ingenuity of South Korea. Already possessing a whopping 4.2+ million views on YouTube after being uploaded last year, the following video demonstrates a massive “human LCD” screen at a South Korean soccer station.

One can only wonder the amount of training that went into creating this stunning display of ingenuity and cooperation of 750 South Korean soccer fans. Requiring timing down the the half-second, these artists move and twirl in absolutely precise synchronicity to create stunning displays such as a volcano exploding,a tiger’s eyes, and a thumbs up with a background that rotates in colors.

To complete this remarkable feat, the participants wore tri-colored jackets: one color on the front, one on the back, and a third that can be revealed by lifting up a flap on the inside of their jacket. The results are simply astounding. Unfortunately, a lack of details, such as how long it took them to coordinate, where the idea came from, and the like, prevent us from fully understanding the history of the video, but that’s ok. Sometimes it’s better left to our imagination.

Coming next: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″ as performed by the entire country. Or not. But it would be pretty cool.

Fantastic! After reading the description at first I thought it might be just another one of those "human lcd" things that I have seen in many videos usually of college sporting events. But this one blows all those others away! The speed of change, the complexity of designs, the multiple images and backgrounds they do...AWESOMENESS! I wonder how it felt to be a "pixel" of this fantastic HDS (Human Display System)? Looks like it was great fun to be one of the pixels! I'm sure they had a great party afterward...with soju flowing freely and unlimited Bulgogi. hahaha
