There are many types of Reogs in Indonesia but Reog Ponorogo is the most famous. Waroks hold a 50kg singobarong mask in their teeth while performing. Malaysia has attempted to annex the performance.

After reading the second link, I take it that they get their inspiration from making out on the regular with a young boy.

This video is like something out of Jim Woodring's Frank in the way it strikes me as totally beyond my cultural grasp, and really beautiful to watch.
