The Weird Street Dancer Guy

There is an abundance of amateur street entertainment in Melbourne. And by amateur, I mean most performers are less than mediocre, bordering on excruciatingly bad. It's amazing how shameless people are. I'm not sure if they're that desperate for their next meal, simply enjoy performing, genuinely think they're good, or are just completely insane. My guess is some combination of these scenarios. 

Whatever the reason, I salute the man that stands on the corner of our street (one of the busiest in Melbourne) and dances provocatively to music he blasts through a speaker. It's a pretty high-tech operation. His choreography is nothing short of disturbing, but it's also strangely entertaining to watch. It's one of those situations where you can't look away. His musical choice ranges from Journey to, my personal favorite, Britney Spears. Watching this man dance to "Hit Me Baby One More Time" is an experience I will not soon forget. 
And yes, that's a five dollar bill in his mouth.

  1. Glad you are getting some enjoyment out of this! The man looks like he enjoys it too. Happy dancing.
