According to its YouTube channel, 'Masquerade' "is one of the most popular TV shows produced by NTV Japan".

"People from all walks of life participate in the contest to present their unique performances" on 'Masquerade', apparently. "In addition to preparing their own costumes and props, contestants exert themselves physically and creatively to bring forth their best possible performance."

Sounds just like 'Britain's Got Talent'!

But we digress.

Because above is a slice of brilliance courtesy of 'Masquerade' - a gymnastics sketch that's as inventive as it is well-executed.

We give it a perfect 10!
