For anyone who's ever ridden the train (particularly in New York City) and heard the words, "Excuse me ladies and gentlemen ... " emerge from the back of the car, you know you're about to be in for something. Sometimes it's an outright request for money; other times, it's a painful rendition of a Motown favorite. But other times, it's just an out-of-the-blue dance party from a guy in a tuxedo, who just wants to see you smile.
Such was the treat many traingoers recently received on a ride through Perth, Australia, last month. As the doors closed and the train barreled on, a polite gentleman dressed head-to-toe in a black-tie ensemble announced he was about to start dancing. They could join in, they could clap their hands or they could sit back and take in the show. Either way, he just wanted to put a smile on their face for a brief three minutes and thirty seconds.
"Hey guys, I don't want money," the man begins. "I just want to spread a little bit of happiness."
And that he does. Watch and enjoy the reaction of the train car, as he blasts James Brown's classic "I Feel Good" and breaks out some seriously hilarious dance moves.
Doesn't this just makes us feel happy all over? (Good luck getting James Brown out of your head today, though.)
