This Clip of a Shirtless, Middle-Aged Man Going Wild With a Hacky Sack Is Hypnotizing

Monday August 5th, 2013

Everything about this video is perfect. The moves. The techno-funk score. The showmanship. The flailing arms. The level of self-confidence. The title, Gettin Props at City Hall. The absence of a shirt.


Though this YouTuber, h4x354x0r, has uploaded over 200 videos -- the majority of which feature himself hacky-sacking without his shirt on -- the only previous one that really picked up any steam was a footbag routine that featured a scolding preacher in the background. That vid has tallied over 50,000 views, plus an obvious question in the comments and an all-time smackdown in response.


Props much deserved.
