Macarena for Bosnian Orphans, Dept.
Something I did not know before watching this video, itself a bit mid-’80s but also surreal: that large groups of people know how to dance Gangnam Style and will do so before a camera. Not since ‘86’s pandemic of Los Angeles crowds walking like Egyptians has a Caucasian group reached across ethnic lines so enthusiastically to assume the identity of an ethnic Other.
It was, I believe, Martin Luther King Jr. who said,
“We are the world. We are the children.
We are the ones who make a brighter day.
So let’s start giving.”
