People are cringing over this video of the Brisbane Mayor watching an Asian cultural dance routine

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk was overlooking the preparations of the BrisAsia Festival in Chinatown when he was given a special preview performance of some of the dance routines to be performed at the festivals.

Seven News managed to capture the awkward video of the mayor forcefully smiling along as he watched girls dressed in school uniforms perform in the middle of the city centre.

What made it even worse was that no audio was captured along with the video so the girls are dancing in silence.

Although they seem to be performing a K-POP dance routine, the matching costumes and unison dance moves give it away, many users online were quick to point out that this scene was similar to the classic J’amie King dance routine.

Needless to say, this was a very awkward video to watch.

The BrisAsia Festival starts on the 9th of February to the 3rd of March to celebrate traditional and contemporary Asian arts and culture.
