Controversy in Canada as Maori All Black Haka drags on an awkwardly long time
A storm has erupted in Canada after a Haka performed by the Maori All Blacks went on an awkwardly long time.
The Maori All Blacks Haka performed the step-dance at a sold-out BC Place in downtown Vancouver before facing Canada’s Men’s Rugby Team
Normally Haka take less than a minute or something, but this dragged on for an age. It’s the second Maori All Black Haka to cause controversy, with a similar Haka against the British and Irish Lions being likened to Michael Jackson’s Thriller video.
The Maori All Black Haka’s origins go all the way back to the 2006 Channing Tatum film – Step Up, in which a troubled young man finds redemption and romantic intrigue after attending hip-hop dancing classes.
