Last night I went to a concert, and like every kind of show I go to, the most annoying person in the entire building sat down next to me. Actually, it was the most annoying couple in the building.
Part of me was trying to excuse them by thinking, maybe they just did a lot of drugs before they came to the show. I don’t think that’s true, but they did drink about eight cocktails through the night. Anyway, they basically were shouting weird phrases through all the songs, clapping randomly at weird times (quiet chorus, clap loudly!), and doing the strangest hand/arm dances I’ve ever seen, in addition to pointing enthusiastically at the band whenever they did something they liked. I really wish I was at home so I could draw a picture for you because I don’t think my explanation is doing their weirdness justice. I actually tried to take a video, but it was dark and I had to keep my phone semi-hidden to prevent me from getting kicked out for camera use. I don’t think the usher would have believed me if I said that I was just trying to record the crazy people in front of me and not the band.
And do you know what the worst part was? The crazy clapping lady wasn’t even clapping to the beat. The husband told me that some people are just born with no rhythm at all, but I found that shockingly unbelievable. I mean, you can’t clap to a beat?! At one point though, one of the band members directed the audience to start clapping really quickly, so she started clapping as slowly as possible. So the husband won his point, this time.
And so now, I would like to submit to you, the worst video ever taken by a camera phone. Now, before you tell me she’s not that crazy, please keep in mind that this is her at her tamest. Please note off-beat clapping. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the roundhouse pointing dance she did.
I told you the video was really awful.
