Many people exercised the broadcast callisthenics. This series refer to the form of the wall chart of broadcast callisthenics. But here the mechanic explanation couldn’t be viewed as serious. Then what’s the meaning of how to teach the others to practice those daily behaviors? The sarcastic and naughty expression caters for everyone. The artist implied that once the basic behavior is being “culturalized,” then those basic instincts are lost.
