Toy Soldiers

Recently, I posted a time lapse video of China's 60th anniversary celebration and lamented our own lack of discipline and coordination. It turns out the French don't want to be left behind either, and here is their aesthetically pleasing response.

I don't know exactly how this video manages to make everything look like a miniature toy, and I may be way off base here, but the ultimate effect, at least as I see it, shows soldiers as obedient puppets and mindless automata lacking any personal sense of identity other than that accorded by their social group. So, on second thought, probably not what they were going for...

What's your take on it?
