I don’t know if I ever posted this video on TokyoMango — while readying my Wired Mag article about Hiroyuki Nishimura and Nico Nico Douga for publication in early 2008, a bunch of Wired staffers got together in the office kitchen in San Francisco and danced the Uma Uma. Then, we uploaded the video onto Nico Nico Douga and watched as comments filled the screen. Some people made fun of us for being old, or American, or both; some wondered whether we had real work to do; some just “sang” along.
Watching this makes me happy and nostalgic for my Wired days. By the way, stay tuned for an imminent video story on Boing Boing about showcasing one guy’s latest stunt on Nico Nico Douga.
