The internet throws up some weird and wonderful videos, and one spotted by The Verge most definitely qualifies. Posted in late April, it's really a tale of our times, of dreams crushed and destiny unfulfilled.

It's about a Pikachu that couldn't dance.

At last week's Pokémon World Festival 2017 in South Korea part of the entertainment, of course, was a group of Pikachu mascots dancing to happy music. Then just after a minute the lead Pikachu starts to deflate, with its eyes despairingly pleading for help from the audience. It's bundled off in shame, and even an attempted comeback at the end brings more crushed hopes.

This Pikachu was not destined to dance.

Silly drama aside, this is the most oddly entertaining video we've seen this week...
