I was about to go to bed when I found the following picture, with no description other than ‘Piglets’:

I figured the scene must have been staged, but I had to learn more. Turns out that it’s a silly British kids show that is performed INSIDE the inflatable pig!

Every summer, the Whalley Range All Stars rolls out “The Pig” to various festivals across the UK. Kids (and brave adults) don little piglet tails and assume their positions to watch a short show performed inside the pig. Between shows, the pig moves around a little and makes pig noises.

Here are a couple more pictures:

Whalley Range All Stars Pig 2
(thanks to Alper Çugun for the pics)

I’ll bet the kids look absolutely adorable “suckling” on the pig while the show goes on inside … too bad I couldn’t find any videos.

    I thought they were sucking on a big pink marshmallow.

    That’s surreal I wonder if the show inside is actually any good.

    Looks like something you’d see in a Michel Gondry Video!

  9. […] 呵呵,我的第一反应是,好热啊。这个是每年夏天“Whalley Range All Stars”在英国各地搞的东西,其实是在猪的肚子里有演出,从外面看上去就比较搞笑一点了。更多可以看这里。 我是很不喜欢猪的,这辈子亲眼见过猪是军训的时候到个农场,每个人都要去转一圈。那个叫恶心的哦。即使人们把它当宠物养在家里,我还是觉得很脏很丑很恶心。尤其是看了“小猪宝贝”这部电影后,我更讨厌猪了。  […]
