Synchronized walking - level 3

Now, we’ve all heard of synchronized swimming. But have you heard of synchronized walking?

Sounds crazy, right? Well in Japan, they’re loving it.

It’s called “Shudankodo” in Japanese or “Collective Action” and has gained massive popularity after a YouTube video went viral last year.

Difficult words: viral (extremely popular).
