Nature v. Nurture

Do you think that the kids were taught to pogo or is that just the instinctual reaction to hearing the Ramones?

I was wondering the same thing about the pogoing that randall. I'd like to think it just naturally happens, that's a great video!

Little kids bopping and shouting to Ramones music...who would've thought it but yet it makes perfect sense.

That video is precious, like a preschool CBGB. It has it all: rad dudes in ringer tees, stoner hair-shaking, proto-hipsters who are too cool to dance and just stand there looking bored, and my personal favorite, the three bettys in front holding hands and screaming every word. Punk rock really does make the world a better place.

@ randall said -- not for nothing but "pogo" dancing is typical of the Masai --

I seem to recall some old film of Ray Charles "dancing" in a pogo like fashion back in the day. Which would be pretty amazing, considering he couldn't see how other people danced, and just moved in a way that seemed naturally right.

Love those little punk rocking kids.
