Hi, excuse me while I share my weird and boring sense of humor with you.
A couple months ago I caught a little bit of The Rolling Stones: Rock and Roll Circus on the teevee. Our cable box happened to be on PBS, and that’s what was playing there.
I was curious what some earlier parts of the show looked like, so went back a little with the DVR (it keeps around two hours of airtime of whatever channel you’re watching in memory).
So I see the Stones play “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, and after the first verse there’s this odd sort of shot. It starts out on these goofballs in yellow ponchos dancing, then we quickly pan over to Brian Jones, who gives a premeditated, hipper-than-thou nod straight into the camera.
I immediately busted out laughing. I mean, I couldn’t control myself. I then proceeded to rewind the DVR probably fifteen or twenty times so I could see it again. What was it that was so funny to me? It wasn’t just the dancing goofballs, or the whip pan, or Brian Jones nodding to me, it was somehow the combination of all three that I found absolutely heee-larious.
Anyways, I have isolated this shot and repeated it a number of times, and have uploaded it to YouTube.
The results are below. You’re welcome, I guess?
