    Now THIS is funny. Wait for the bass player's superb demonstration of showmanship at about 1:20 into the clip. If only he knew what he was starting... :D

    My favorite part is at 1:48, while he's running back with the bass above his head, yet he's already in place behind the drums. It's like Quantum Leap or something!

    At about 1:38 I was SURE the Marx Brothers were going to run across the screen!

    And I believe the style in which that young lady was dancing is called the "buck and wing".

    Too much hip thrust
    There is something hilarious to me about the whole deal. I wonder if playing in a band like that was attractive to females.
  13. Ahahaha, great, though as already mentioned he didn't know what he started.
  14. Thanks, awesome.

  16. It's like walking by a window in you home and looking out to see your neighbour (78 year old) humping a bingo buddy. It's halarious, disgusting, but you just cant turn your head.
  17. Early use of LSD?
