I saw a commercial tonight that was kinda amusing because of the overreactions in it (as they clearly state), but it got me to thinking. First, the commercial, for Applebee’s:
These actors do a passable job of getting their groove on, but I thought about how this might apply to some of my lunch outings with the guys. If some of my friends got up and started trying to dance all funky, people all around the restaurant might lose their appetite. Some folks need to keep their “moves” at home. I’m jus’ sayin’… 🙂
Last week’s caption contest featured people standing around, so this time let’s have a group of people with something going on. Although I’m not exactly sure what’s going on — whether it’s dancing or an accident or a prank or what — you get to decide. So figure out something funny to say about this picture or to explain it. Remember that you can create your own backstory, even using flashbacks, to setup your humor. Let your creativity flow.

I don’t regularly watch the show America’s Got Talent, so I don’t know all the context of this video, but I do know that there’s two people dancing to the same song here — an older grey-haired white man versus a black man who’s probably in his 20s or 30s. And the song is by James Brown. Who do you suppose would do better at getting their groove on? (No need to be prejudiced here… I’m just sayin’…)
What do you think?
The music on the Mii channel on the Nintendo Wii has an unusual groove to it, and apparently it prompts some people to dance. In the following video, the instructor of a recent Boogiezone University workshop danced to it for his students.
It’s too bad the Miis (characters / avatars) on the Wii don’t dance to it. However, in Wii Fit you can see your Miis dancing (and you get to dance along, too), albeit it’s more of a step up / step down routine, but you can creatively add to it.
BTW, who knew there was a Boogiezone University? Can you get a degree in getting your groove on? I’m glad I didn’t have to take a dance class in college, or I might’ve lost my scholarships…
