  1. Unusual. The clothing seems almost like theatrical costuming.

    • I had the same thought In regard to the theatrical appearance of the men’s clothing. In fact, they look like they’re about to start tap dancing to the song “By the Light of the Silvery Moon”.

      • I noticed that the men seem to have umbrellas. ….not canes.
