Oh, it’s so bad. I can’t watch.

My eyes are on the verge of bleeding. I don’t know what’s worse, the side ponytail or the fact that they’ve just stripped all the sly humor out of this glorious dance. Ice dancing to OK Go’s “A Million Ways”: it’s almost like a Craig and Arianna skit gone wrong.

There are 18 positive, glowing comments on the YouTube page for this video, and nary a dissenter. Am I just missing something? Holy lord.

  • how painful. i guess it just goes to show you that no matter what music you put it to, ice dancing is not cool.

  • yeah, that’s kind of what I try to tell my parents EVERY TIME the Olympics rolls around and their world summarily ceases for the ice dancing routines. maybe it;s the sequins? I don’t know.

  • If nothing else, you do have to admit that it is funny.

    Strange…but funny

  • It reminds me of the Fatboy Slim video for “Praise You” with the added complexity of ice. The pony on the side is a great touch.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
