Won Over By Reality

BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—5/13/2013—My previous post was titled “Dancing With My Dog” (though who was whose, and who was dancing with whom might be debated). The tie-in to today’s posting is that this film might well have been titled “Dancing With My Dog Tags” (except that no actual dog tags are shown in the video).
The back story for this footage (sent to me by Ken Smith) is as follows: The Miami Dolphins cheerleaders sent a music video to the troops in Afghanistan; the GIs sent one back. Both are excellent videos and even better when viewed in tandem.
If you, yourselves, come across an entertaining link or video, I’d be interested in seeing it, and sharing it with my readers at Weekly Hubris. Please contact me at: Email: email@example.com.)
Guys Only (Well, Mostly) PS: The Blowing-Stuff-Up Section:
Here’s a video of just the military video. The 1:57-minute mark of this film includes the original audio of the soldiers firing a four-point deuce mortar: very cool.
