    Some young guys shooting a commercial with Bill Murray ask, instead of autographs, to get a Wes Anderson SloMo walk with him.

    He obliged.

    @Agent Arsenic: Hold what - a cock or a festival for same? ; )

    @oddbill: A Phillip Kaufman SloMo Walk surely??
    (Round 'ere we call it the Hero Walk. And Kaufman because he invented the move in The Right Stuff.)

    @Cat Vincent: Kaufman may have invented it, but Anderson perfected it with sincere irony. These guys are doing Anderson, not Kaufman.

    I think Turkey has just won the Coutore Batman thread...

    @oddbill - OK (though I suspect we will have to disagree on whether Anderson has perfected anything..)

    When it's actually badass, it's a Kaufman walk. When it's a bunch of dorks with a classic rock backing track, it's Anderson. And if it's not slo-mo it's Buckaroo Banzai.

    @Purple Wyrm - Also, breakdancing in long capes looks like a really bad idea (see the 2:05ish mark).

    I must say the longer this went on the more it melted what passes for my heart these days. The bar is set, you guys.

    The backup dancers in this year's Eurovision were one of the biggest sources of amusement in there. There are the Turkish Batmen, of course (who at one point in the song form a Turkish man-boat), and then there's Moldova, whose backup dancers seem to have an obsession with the Cathy's House sketch that Vermillion Pleasure Night did a while back.

    Skip to about a minute in to skip the pre-song chatter

    And just for the sake of reference (and for the sake of awesome), here's Cathy's House.

    This is deeply offensive:
    it belongs here

    You can't argue with that Geisha's family pedigree.

    Someone give that Koala a cute hat.
  8.  (10663.214)
    Oh sure, it may look cute, but given the chance that Koala would kill you and everyone you care about!

    Eucalyptus is liver toxic so koalas are constantly hung over and cranky. They're unlikely to actually attack you but they'll definitely piss on you given the opportunity. Then, of course, there are their lethal relations... DROP BEARS

    Drop Bears!
    Kind of obligatory I think...
  11.  (10663.217)
    Lots of people confuse Koalas with Dropbears.. Not the same at all.
  12.  (10663.218)
    They look pretty similar UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE

    And I'm sure it's been mentioned around these parts that sadly many koalas are dying from chlamydia-
