This time last year I witnessed the most insane 2 min phenomenon of my life – the dancing guy at the Sasquatch Music Festival. Below is the video I managed to capture:
Now this to me is the definition of a free spirit. I was watching this guy dance like a maniac for about hour BEFORE this even happened! But then one person decided to join him, and then seconds later came number 3 running down and it became cool. That 3rd guy in my opinion made it legit. Everyone went mental after that!! It switched from being about him to being this awesome dance party.
I love the fact the song being performed was Unstoppable by Santigold.
Which brings me to another point: Santigold should give him a yearly dividend. Cos he created a movement that single handily made this song massive!! The dancing guy videos went viral and when that happens, its word of mouth on steroids.
Don’t believe me?
Check out all the comments for the Unstoppable track on youtube.. they all mention the dance party! It should be taken as a blessing from the skies for any tune to go viral nowadays of 1000 niche musical tastes.
Sasquatch should give this guy life time tickets to the event as a token of goodwill! You simply can’t create this again! If it were to happen, it would always be compared to this.
