    Reservoir Dad Home Alone - Gangnam Style

    As I waved goodbye to Reservoir Mum and the boys I felt a pang in my guts that approached despair.  There goes my whole life in a silver Tarago, I thought. It was only after I’d walked inside our home and listened to the quiet for a while that I was overcome by an irresistible need to dance.

    And so I did.

    With the music loud and the space unlimited and without being interrupted by my beautiful children even once. After dancing myself out I went straight to the Reservoir Dad Facebook Page to tell everyone about it.

    One thing lead to another and a challenge presented itself – Amanda McFarlane and Penni Perrin requested Reservoir Dad Gangnam Style. I told them I couldn’t do that with a Facebook page under 1000 likers. A few hours later the liker-meter had tipped over the 1000 mark and is now approaching 1,300.

    So, my quiet night alone turned in to a massive panic stricken dance-athon.

    It’s funny you know. Last night Diana Pizzari commented via Facebook that ‘it was a bit sad’ that I’d been playing nude Twister by myself. She may have a point. But here’s ‘a happening’ that some people may consider even sadder –

    It was my first night alone in several years. I had eaten a lot of chicken wings and was updating my Facebook page regularly while enjoying my third or fourth beer and practicing my already very capable dancing to a ‘how to dance Gangnam Style’ video on YouTube when, suddenly, it occurred to me that I WAS HAVING A GREAT TIME.

    And I really was. It took several ‘takes’ to perfect the soon to be famous Reservoir Dad Gangnam Style video and I only really felt sad when it was all over.

    So, here’s the video that everyone’s been waiting for. I’m very proud of it. It basically confirms to me that I can move and it’s probably going to go viral because it has many potential uses. Here are just a few –

    • A ‘how to dance’ instructional video’
    • A home aerobics video – put it on every morning and work your thighs, hips and buns in under four minutes.
    • A promotional video for popular brands like Gucci and Target.
    • An aid for anyone suffering from low libido.

    Thanks to the 300+ new likers of The Reservoir Dad Facebook page. Stick around.  There’s plenty more where this came from. I’ll leave you with a direct quote from Reservoir Mum (who I love more than anything) -

    “You have this strange compulsion to take the piss out of yourself… it's incurable.’

      Only half a bottle of wine required to produce this? Could you confirm my suspicions that you are a professionally trained dancer - Paris, Moscow, New York? Good work man, you need to unleash that at a wedding, almost worth renewing your vows for?

      Props to you, RD! A perfectly reasonable way to spend a Friday night - nothing wrong with good clean fun, right? Enjoy the wedding today; at least you'll be right when the music cranks up later, lol. :)
