    Soot-covered palanquin bearers take internet by storm (2021/05/04)

    Two palanquin bearers in a Matsu parade have taken the internet by storm. A photo of the two men covered in gray ashes has gone viral on social media. The ashes were from the firecrackers set off in an annual Matsu parade held by Yunlin’s Beigang Chaotian Temple. Internet users praised the two palanquin bearers as “real men” who were, quote, “too cool.”

    The bearers hold a palanquin carrying Matsu as firecrackers explode around them. The smoke is so dense you can barely see anything.

    Photos of the celebration were shared on social media, showing two men caked in soot, their pink lips peeking through. This image drew a flurry of appreciative comments, with people calling it “too cool” and thanking the palanquin bearers for their hard work. One of the bearers in the photo is surnamed Chen. All cleaned up, he is completely unrecognizable.

    Chen Po-yang
    Palanquin bearer
    I had to shower for about an hour, using dish soap. I’ve been doing this since I was in the seventh grade. That’s about 16 or 17 years.

    The explosive parade gives the palanquin bearers a heavy dusting of ashes. In some photos all you can see is their teeth. All facial expressions are lost under the black soot. During the procession, it’s hard to avoid getting singed on the body and legs.

    Chen Po-yang
    Palanquin bearer
    For protection we have ear plugs, hats and towels. You have to make sure to wrap up your neck, or you’ll get burns from the firecrackers.

    The Beigang Chaotian Temple in Yunlin holds one of Taiwan’s three most explosive Matsu parades. Worshippers believe that the louder the explosion, the more prosperity that follows, and the more impressive their deity appears. The best of processions would not be possible without the bravery, faith and ardor of its bearers.

    太酷了! 北港百年炸轎文化 抬轎夫變"炮灰人"

    雲林北港朝天宮,「迎媽祖炸轎」已經有百年歷史,炸轎的炮火,威力到底有多大?有民眾在網路社團,貼出一張剛吃完「炮陣」的轎伕照片,全身沾滿了炮灰,黑抹抹一片,只剩下牙齒看得見,引起網民驚呼,都說這兩名轎伕,簡直是「炮灰人」,實在太辛苦了!

    轎班抬著媽祖神轎,一陣鞭炮炸過來,煙霧瀰漫,抬轎的轎伕,幾乎看不到人。

    有民眾在網路社團,貼出一張轎伕照片,2名轎伕的帽子、頭髮、臉上全部沾上一層厚厚的炮灰,只剩下嘴唇看得見,完全成為「炮灰人」。有眾民留言「太酷了!」、「辛苦了!」。而實際找到照片中的這位轎伕,就是這位陳先生,前後簡直判若兩人。

    “洗澡差不多洗一個多小時,要用洗碗精擦,我從國一到現在了,差不多16年、17年了”

    一場炸轎活動下來,抬轎的轎伕,各個全身都沾滿了炮灰,只看到白白的牙齒,臉上的表情幾乎看不見。身體、雙腳、也難免被炸傷。

    [[朝天宮轎班人員 陳柏陽]]
    “防護措施,就是耳塞、帽子,毛巾都很重要,脖子一定要包好,不然會被鞭炮炸到、燒到”

    每年雲林縣北港朝天宮媽祖出巡,有台灣三大炮之一的「北港犁轎」震撼演出,信徒認為炸得越旺,神威越顯赫。轎伕的勇氣、信仰和熱忱,也很令人敬佩。
