    I`d assume the puppets contain a breathing tube as well?

    Who knew that a sampling of scenes could actually form a tradition.

    "I`d assume the puppets contain a breathing tube as well?"

    Or a rebreather.

    I`m sure "rebreathers" are an integral part of a 1,000-year old Vietnamese tradition. Yeah, that makes sense!

    The puppeteers are standing behind the screen in the back, controlling the puppets with strings and long bamboo rods. No rebreathers or breathing tubes needed.

    How exactly is this an "amazing tradition"?

    It just looks like a hyped up thunderbirds skit.

    Kind of weird... And I guess I don`t understand why some of the scenes would be played out in water. Like the horses jumping through flaming hoops....
