May your double dream hands stay dreamy!

Ladies and gentlemen, throw away your “Just Dance” Wii game and copy of “Step Up 2” on Blu-ray. John Jacobson is all the instruction we need with this original choreography for the song Planet Rock. He drops it like it’s hot in this inspirational routine and demonstrates dance moves like “Double Dream Hands” and the “Butterfly.”

Whether you try these moves at the company holiday party or the clubs this weekend, may your double dream hands stay dreamy!

Now prepare to have your face melted…

Max Headroom: Cyberpunk Mystery

This is the original airing of Max Headroom Pirating Incident on WTTW Chicago during a broadcast of Dr. Who. This was one of two television hijackings that took place on this day in 1987. Earlier in the evening on the same day, during the Nine O’Clock News on WGN-TV Channel 9, Max Headroom broke in and interrupted the sportscast.

The people behind the stunt were never caught, and who did it remains a mystery today.

Coke jumped on the incident with this commercial, and I’m pretty sure Jim Carrey got famous mimicking him.

Was this one of the biggest PR stunts in the history of television or the work of some modern day airwave pirates out to prove a point? Whatever it was, it got us talking and was sorta creepy.
