What's happening in this GIF?

What's going on in this GIF? I keep on looking at it and people assure me something awesome's happening, but I am still confused?

I want to be in on the joke/awesomeness! I'm not naturally a visually oriented person and I'll eventually be left behind by everybody on the internet, but in the meanwhile, what is this?

They are costumes. The 'people' on their backs are just dummies.

To me, it looks like the young women in this built costumes that make it look like they're being carried by ghouls/zombies, but the creatures "behind" them are just tops of costumes?

Looks like weird dudes carrying girls; is actually girls cleverly dressed in costumes made to look like weird dudes carrying them and running about on their own two legs. It took me a while to get! (Look at the hands of the carrying party!)

Those girls aren't being carried. They have stuffed legs and a body wrapped around them.

Yeah, it's kind of like one of these (less emu, though).

Look at the spindly little skinny-jeans lady legs. Either two grown chicks are being carried by some ca. 2006 emo boys, or...it's a costume.

Here's the video it comes from. Bump up the quality and pause it to see in more detail.

The legs portrayed as blonging to the carried women are dummies as are the torsoes protrayed as belonging to the carriers.

nthing that those are costumes being worn by the girls, but adding, also, that those girls appear to be having a simply swell old time.

For a different version of this concept, see it in jetpack form.

The guys carrying the girls around have humorously long fingers.

Yes. Similar to this costume, which is one dog dressed as two dogs dressed as pirates carrying a treasure chest.
