Our week of Austin City Limits Festival entries continues with this one submitted by Kenneth.
We know from experience that as the fest gets more crowded every year, it’s not always easy to find space to do yo thang, so we applaud this guy for not only having room to move, but doing it in elevated style on some sort of improvised dance platform. You keep enjoying that Yeasayer set. Stay dancy, my friend.
We didn’t know there was such a meme as Guile’s theme from Street Fighter being mashed up with random videos but we fully support the effort. Well done, Internet.
We’re not sure because of the way this video flips from sideways to right-side-up, but we think this dude is being eaten alive by his own oversized orange shirt. Should we help him, maybe?
For anyone who’s ever dreamed of being on stage and showing the world what’s inside your soul…
For anyone who’s ever been stuck in a dead-end job and wished for one shining moment of grace in front of a large crowd of people…
For anyone who has ridiculous dance moves and has no problem performing them in public…
For anyone who ever wished they could be hated and admired by thousands of people at once…
… it’s too late. This guy beat you to it.
It’s all well and good to have body moves, but never forget that your face is in the game, too. If your face isn’t dancing along with your body, you’re just a person who’s only dancing from the shoulders down.
Give him space and some air. He really needs to utilize the area out here, to explore its possibilities. I’m sure he’s onto something. Just give him a sec. I’m sure he’s going to do something cool if we just… wait… for — OK, never mind. Pardon the intrusion.
The song is called I’m Still Standing, but can you really call that standing if your face is bent over, your shoulders are doing the Igor position and you’re doing some sort of variation on the Monster Mash? “Yeah, yeah, yeah?” No, no, no.
You can dance at an Iron Maiden concert, you can take your shirt off at an Iron Maiden and you can get drunk at an Iron Maiden concert, but doing all three at once is not something we advise.
