Improv Everywhere’s “Worst Skater Ever”

Check out this awesome video from Improv Everywhere:

What I love about this is that this guy is neither thin nor “athletic.”*  It’s a bit hard to tell with thick winter clothes but he’s probably at least in the “overweight” category of the BMI, if not “obese.”  It’s very cool to see people of all sizes developing physical skills and having fun in their bodies!

—————–

* in scare quotes because plenty of fat athletes prove that there is no one “athletic” body type and yet society does have particular connotations for that.

    Love it!
    My now six-year-old was watching and saying “why are they laughing at him? That’s so mean?”
    I love her.
    And I didn’t say “because they are New Yorkers” because, well, that’s just mean.

    it’s like a one person flash mob! i’ve always appreciated the irony in someone having to be able to do something really well to be able to ‘perform’ ineptitude.
