Bucket Truck Ballet

Strange, industrial-strength dancing...

Recently stumbling upon a large sales yard for really large bucket trucks, the lobe of my brain that tends to ponder the odd came up with this one.

In this yard of a dozen or so bucket trucks, they were parked in a "V" formation with each bucket arm almost fully extended. As I drove past, that brain lobe that I spoke of kicked into full gear, and I was treated to an imaginary dance of these trucks and their buckets -- complete with symphonic orchestration...

It was excellent. Weird, but excellent.

I think that the ferrets might provide more entertainment though!

       This has been seen in the UK on (I think) Esther Rantzens dismal 'That's Life' series. Any UKians care to help out here?. I think that it involved JCBs to the tune(!) of 'The Blue Danube'.
*Edit* Coupla links over there.

       I saw an outfit like this in the UK called Dancing Diggers about a decade ago. Really impressive.

       I have the image of the people from 'ground force' trying this.   

       We're redoing a rather large garden today...
