Robots ring in the Chinese New Year with a disco dance-a-thon

New Year is a huge thing in China, so to kick off The Year of the Dragon, Chinese TV's The Big Show showed off this amazing 14 robot dance troupe.

The routine starts off all pretty and ballet-like, but then the robots break out their hip hop moves and switch to standing on their heads. To finish up they give us some NFL-style end zone celebration poses.

Several other sites are saying that the music is based on the Tetris theme, but I'm pretty sure this is just a disco version of Brahms' Hungarian Dance Number 5.
