South Korea's sports mascots are better than yours (Credit: Screenshot, YouTube)
This article originally appeared on GlobalPost.

Global PostThere are several things that are remarkable about this video of mascots having a dance-off at an All-Star baseball game in South Korea.

1) So many mascots! In the United States, you’re lucky if you get two. Usually it’s just one. In this video, there are eight mascots at a baseball game.

2) The mascots can really move! Here, our mascots move, but mainly it’s in a sort of hula-hooping motion. In Korea, they do full on back-handsprings.

3) Mascots have dance-offs! It’s hard enough to keep one-upping a dancing partner when you’re wearing the proper footwear and pants with some elasticity. But these mascots have a full on dance-off while sporting enormous stuffed animals on their heads!

You win, Korea. You win the All-Star baseball game mascot dance-off:
