Real-Life Human Zoetrope

We've posted an awful lot of zoetropes over the years, and here is another, but this one uses real people. While it looks like a stop-motion video, you have to remember that while you watch "a man" moving, it's really six guys appearing in successive frames. Cool idea, and the producers deserve some credit for that, but the real stars are the performers. Imagine trying to stay upright on a playground carousel using just your feet while you follow a plan and coordinate your moves with five other guys! You can see a making-of video here. (via Digg)
