Über-cheesy Gospel Procession

As a good Eastern, I shouldn't be sticking my nose into Roman affairs, but I couldn't help laughing at this one:

Video HERE

Are those acolytes on loan from the Chocolate Factory or are they actually direct from Loompa-Land? - Edward

I refrain from commenting on the other funny behaviour in the video =P

I have another riddle for you.
If you are wise you'll listen to me:

What do you get when the Mass is a mess?
priests wearing stoles like they're wearing a dress?
Celebrants spinning while holding a book;
Processionals made up all of kooks.

I don't like the look of it!

Ooompa-loompa-doompity da,
If you're not stupid, you will go far.
You will live in happiness, too,
Like the trads and Oompa-loompities do!

I'm a R.C. and the clip was one of the worst Gospel processions I've ever seen!!

A couple of things I've picked up: When was it permitted for Altars to be replaced by tables?
If the priesthood no longer has any self-respect, what hope that they will be respected?
More importantly the Gospel; our Lord himself being paraded in such an unbefitting manner is an insult. The acclaimation should be solemn.

The video clip may not be from a R.C. Church, but an Anglican Church instead as indicated by the table on the sanctuary instead of the Altar.
