When I sign on to the Internet, the screen fills with what serves an amalgation from my provider that serves as my home page. I could choose somethings else but I kind of like this hodge podge of news, weather, recipes and other assorted useless information. I mean, how else would I have learned about the latest fitness video to go viral.
There's really no way to adequately describe it; you have to watch the video. The creator, however, does have a description: A springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse's gait and ideally induced by elation. Yes, sir...getting my inner horse on is my idea of an effective workout. And after watching the video, I doubt a prancing gallop with arms flailing will do as much to get you in shape as a good brisk walk. In fact, the lady behind Prancercise looks more like some ditzy aunt dancing by herself at a family wedding than a fitness guru.
But what I really loved was her outfit. OK, loved isn't exactly the right choice of words. It was...interesting. I so wanted to go buy a pair of running shorts for her to put on over her body-hugging britches, if not for her sake then for mine. And who exercises in a fitted salmon-colored jacket complete with an elaborate necklace? If this is the standard, I must be hanging out at the wrong gym.
I can just see someone Prancercising their way through our neighborhood. Traffic would slow, people would stare and then laughter would ensue. There's a reason this video was filmed in an absolutely vacant park...so that wouldn't happen.
Your curosity is piqued, I'm sure. Without further ado, I present Prancercise. But don't say I didn't warn you.
