Please link me to the original video!
If you find any other songs going with this video, link me those too! (Just for kicks)
If anyone knows any of the history of this video, and feels like telling it, feel free to do that as well.

i’d edit the question so that the youtube link is not in the question itself, fwiw.

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities take up fishing. A wise man once said: “The time a man spends fishing is not deducted from his lifespan.”

Who was that wise man? My bait dealer.

also: i think the dancing in this video was really awesome… but the music is blatantly wrong.
Also, i feel that the framerate and picture quality was terrible, and would probably be better on the “original”
Thats… why i’m asking.

I feel old. I get the impression that some of you have never heard this song before.

As for the actual video, I still have no idea what that is from. Sorry. I’ll do a little more looking, though.
