CHELSEA — Think you’ve seen some bad performances during your subway commutes?
In the clip, two subway performers wearing military fatigues are seen performing an interpretive dance that involves a bunch of bizarre homemade props, some gyrating dance moves, walking handstands and epic background music.
The climax comes as the male performer grabs what looks like a pair of stuffed stockings and starts whacking them against the wall in a frenzy.
YouTube and Reddit commenters offered plenty of thoughts about the performance.
“This is truly the culture of the street,” Krankor wrote on Reddit.
Another Reddit user, Stop_That_Train, simply asked: “Portlandia?”
YouTube user afaultytoaster offered a more insightful interpretation, claiming that the performance represents the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
“The Palestinian farmer begins picking the ancient olive trees of his forefathers before the Israeli soldier lady arrives and forces him to stop with her maneuvers,” the user wrote. “The Palestinian begins to fight back but the Israeli arrests him.”
Brooks, who posted the video, did not respond to a request for comment.
