Imagine the Funniest/Coolest/Best Thing You Could Possibly Wish to See in China…

and then watch it in this video. This occurred at 9 a.m.:

I absolutely LOVE this video for a number of reasons:

1 – You NEVER see people breakdancing in China in public, especially not old people. Thus when context is considered, he’s super unique and not afraid to be different… stylish, I dare say (which I don’t say often).
2 – His trench, hat, shoes, gloves, and sunglasses are phenomenal, but when he takes off his trench at the end he reveals an even more beautiful brown suit and a burnt orange sweater underneath.
3 – The video demonstrates an interesting point that Lu Kun once told me. He said “People stare in China because we learn through our eyes. We watch, and we learn”… there’s one guy at about :35 attempting a similar mode of dance as our main man, but it’s a little confused (but nevertheless endearing… he’s trying to learn!).

Enjoy this video as a special holiday gift from my blog to you… And look for another special post on New Year’s Eve! For those of you stateside, it will be posted December 30th at 11 a.m. EST.
