The Power of One

If you can stomach the shaky camera work in the following video, then you will be justly rewarded. The place is some outdoor concert in a park or field somewhere. The focus of attention is a guy who dances crazily on the grass by himself. It's kind of embarrassing, really, but then another guy joins in and then another. Soon, the individual joie de vivre of a dude with no shame becomes contagious. Alas, this is the evolution of a dance party. Watch:



If I were there, I of course would've been the sole holdout, sitting stubbornly with my arms crossed. "Harumpf!"

  1. Did the second guy end up rolling down the hill after attempting a cartwheel? He fell out of frame for a while. I was just wondering.
