Men In Suits Rush Rapidly Deflating Pikachu To Safety

By Mike Fahey on at

Tragedy struck in mid-dance number during the Pokemon World Festival in Incheon, South Korea earlier this week, as the lead Pikachu sprung a leak during “You Can’t Stop The Beat.” Fortunately an elite squad of suited men was standing by.

The incident occurs at the 1:00 mark in the video below, posted by YouTube user Green Lime and shared via The Verge. As the Pikachu slowly melts in front of a horrified (amused) crowd, the suits leap into action, led by a man in a long-sleeve t-shirt.

The reasons behind the Pikachu’s deflation are unclear, but I strongly suspect it has something to do with “Uptown Funk.”

The suited men attempted to rehabilitate the injured pocket monster and return him to the wild at around 4:35.

But as the song ended, so did the hopes of the saggiest little Pikachu.
