775=german flea circus freezing weather (google search phrase)

Saw this on my AP news feed and thought it was a joke but many news outlets are running it. I had no idea there were flea circuses with actual fleas! Please explain how this flea circus differs from the street show version. I know the street show doesn't have real fleas.
Happily Yours,

I think the main difference is that ........ Well it has fleas! I think you kind of answered it already.

Doesn't Walt Noon do a real flea circus?

There are clips on YouTube. If I can find the link I will post it.....

You've already answered your own question, Wes.
Real flea circuses were popular in the Victorian times, but nowadays (myself included), we create the illusion of a real flea circus.

Couldn't tell from the article, but this may just be a PR stunt. At least, that's what I choose to believe.

There are still a few non-gaffed flea circuses around. Whether this is real or not, the PR is of great value!
