Oscars: Plenty of Time for Cirque du Soleil; Still no Time for Two Musical Performances

Okay, we don’t mean this as a dig to Cirque Du Soleil. All in all, we think they’re pretty cool.

If you’re going to Comic Con, you should totally do this. After the jump, watch a video for a closer look at how they put this thing together.
