VIDEO: The Mysterious Deflating Pikachu


In Case You Missed It – this video has been making the rounds these past few days, and it may just be the cutest thing you’ll ever see this weekend. The video features a bunch of cute Pikachu mascots dancing to the song “You Can’t Stop the Beat” (which some of you will remember from the Hairspray musical). And then things go haywire as the poor mascot is grabbed first by a man in a white shirt, followed by several men in black suits. At first glance, especially sans context, it looks like this Pikachu was forcibly removed from the performance for whatever reason.

However, upon closer inspection, it is clear that the Pikachu in question is having a little bit of a costume malfunction. The costume he/she is wearing is deflating, and so the security staff (we assume) must have decided to take him away and get it fixed. No harm, no foul. Although if you ask us, they could have handled it in a way that doesn’t look like the yellow rat has done something wrong and must be taken to the back and promptly disposed of.
