So I’ve shown this video to a few people and have received a variety of responses, including: “nightmare inducing”, “cool”, “freaky” and “makes me want to dance”. I think it’s amazing! I guess the fact that the subject is a moving mannequin automatically puts it in the horror category (because of the uncanny valley and all)
normal guy normal walk.

Music is Jean Jacques Perrey’s “Little Ships”
I’ve been on a little bit of a Madonna kick lately. I can’t really explain it, but if it’s 7am and I’m driving to work, Madonna better freakin’ be on the radio. So I’m generally not a fan of some youtube video’s sound being replaced by a popular song, but this is THE exception of all exceptions. Madonna? yes. Goth Kids? hell yes. Goth kids dancing to Madonna? YES YES YES. Check it out.
Secret confession: I romanticize the thought of retirement and old age. I mean if I could lead my ideal life now, I would be playing bingo daily, tending to some epic vegetable garden and taking ballroom dance classes. It’s just the whole body self-destructing and mind disintegrating aspect that makes me revisit my dream. THEN, i see a couple like this. married, energetic and just loving life. I didn’t add any similar videos to this post, because this one just stands on its own.
