Do you still think regular camouflage clothing is the standard equipment for students' military training? That's too dull! A college in Southwest China's Chongqing municipality has creatively turned its military training into a 'live concert', Chongqing Morning Post reported.

The photos of freshmen students in fluorescent green clothes taking part in military training at the sports ground of their campus has gone viral online.

Many internet users made fun of the loud clothing. A netizen said, "The color dazzles my eyes. The students can do military training at night without lights." Another said, "The clothes help save electricity."

A college employee said that every year's freshmen students wear different-colored clothes during military training and the college randomly chose fluorescent green this year. The side effect of having students look like a flock of fireflies at night was unexpected.

Qiao Sijia, a freshmen student at the college, said with a smile, "When there is sunshine, the color looks somehow unfriendly to the eyes. But in the night, we dress as if attending a live concert. It feels so good!"
