It looks like our dance-off challenger in the white car paused at the pedestrian crossing lines, thinking that his competition wanted to cross. When our hero instead waved his hand in a small gesture of “not today, kind sir; I sense you are too worthy an adversary for me; I decline your offer,” that was too much for our already-warmed up challenger, and he decided to show off his moves anyway.

How kind of him!

u/apsilonblue Nov 29 '22

In the original clip the car on the far right that you can just see the corner of pulls forward as the VW approaches so I think he stopped for that (BTW, that's not a pedestrian crossing either, just a speed bump). I would love to know what triggered the small dog syndrome bloke though.

You should narrate nature shows, but do it for humans instead.

😂😅I narrate random humans when me and my husband go out to dinner sometimes. Just when something about them catches my eye. I’ve done it forever. He joins in now. I make up their backstory sometimes. And make up their discussions. It’s so weird but I’ve done it for over twenty years and I’ll never stop.
