Metro dancer: 'I do it almost all the time'
It wasn't a stunt, folks.
The earbud-wearing man who earned minor YouTube fame when he got lost in his own boogie oblivion on a Metro train has been identified by the blog We Love D.C. And no, the Broadway-inspired moves that inspired giggles and applause from other riders appears not to have been put on for the cameras.
Meet Bob Grannan, a bespectacled leasing agent who's lived in D.C. for two years.
When he enters a Metro train, Grannan says, he's just gotta dance.
"The trains can be really boring if you just sit there, and the music I listen to is not the type to let you just sit down," Grannan told the blog in an interview. The session on YouTube, he says, was inspired by the musical Hairspray.
Grannan said he can't recall every detail of the particular dance because he does it "all the time."
"It seems like a shame so many people get on there, take a seat and shut down or just get frustrated. Especially people in a rush," Grannan said. "It's funny to me; they're stressed out about being late or on time to something while on the train, like that can help them in any way."
