…that one day I’d live in the town where this awesome video was filmed:
Here’s the history of this observation:
1. Today is Jan’s birthday.
2. One of his birthday presents is a melodica.
3. I said, “Hey, the Hooters used one of those!”
4. He said, “The who?”*
5. I go to YouTube and show him this video.
6. At the beginning of the video, we see a sign for the Exton Drive-In.
7. “Is that OUR Exton?” we wonder. Could be, since the Hooters were a Philadelphia band.
8. After the video—and after I’ve recovered from the visual onslaught of ’80s hair—I google “exton drive in hooters” and pray I don’t get hits for restaurants with scantily clad waitstaff.
9. The first hit is for this site. Awesome.
* I like to joke that he was in a coma during the 1980s. Seriously, he pretty much avoided popular culture during that decade, preferring instead to play and listen to music from the 1960s and 1970s.

Genki Sudo is a pretty interesting person. From martial-arts champion to musician and choreographer—not many people can claim that sort of career trajectory.
This song has been stuck in my head for weeks, ever since I first heard/saw this video. The choreography is pretty freakin’ awesome. The only thing that could improve it is a flying triangle or two.

Amanda Palmer describes this as “a song about Pubix Hair Freedom sung by a crazy chick with a ukulele.” Yeah, that pretty much describes it.
No nudity, but lots of merkins. So possibly NSFW, depending on how your employer and coworkers feel about that sort of thing.

I can’t believe they managed to keep straight faces through the whole thing.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d63jKihoYRg&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]Interestingly, this piece was originally written in 1825.You know what would have made this particular performance even better? If the pianist had been one of the piano-playing cats from YouTube. Oh, yeah…
