Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

A Dancing King-Inspired Father-Son Fashion Talk

This guy was dancing up a storm advertising a local smoothie shop. Say what you will about people who hold down this kind of job, but I’d take this enthusiasm in any office! ┬áThe new energy he brings to “Where is Thumbkin?” should earn him a Grammy (or whatever award they give dancers).

The video itself tells a story so much deeper. The soundtrack was playing for my 2-year old daughter, and I was clearly responding to my 536th and 537th “Why?” questions of the day.

    I have often noticed such enthusiasm in these ‘sidewalk advertisers/performers’. And a good work ethic is so rare in young people these days. Maybe they are slipping something in their Starbucks coffee. Or maybe the economy is so bad any job seems great. Or it might be the exhaust fumes and boredom make a heady combination.

    Might be something about getting paid to work in the sunshine and listen to your favorite tunes. Hey, some of these people might even be using it as an opportunity to market THEMSELVES.

    Isn’t that prostitution?

    I didn’t mean “that way” (I meant as entertainers or something), but your statement oddly reminded me of a profound quote I once heard from Ice Cube on an NPR interview once, where he asserted that all humanity is comprised of nothing but “pimps and ho’s” differing only in context. Anyway . . . tangent.
