Geek Trend: Dancing at the Apple Store

This is one trend you will either love or hate. It seems that dancing at the Apple Store (and posting the performance to YouTube) continues to grow in popularity. Why let iPod-toting dancing silhouettes have all the fun when you can do it yourself at a mall near you? Especially when every MacBook has an iCam.

One frequent dancer many have seen is iJustine, who’s been dancing at Apple Store locations around the country for several years. Last week the mythical White iPhone 4 finally shipped, so Justine celebrated the occasion down in Orlando. And several shoppers joined in!

Another YouTube sensation is iTr3vor, a young man who bops, slithers and lip-syncs among counters nearly as tall as he is. There is serious fan rivalry online about whether iTr3vor or iJustine is better, there’s bound to be a dance-off soon.

Meanwhile SwiffFizz and ensemble go all out for a performance of Usher and Will.i.Am’s OMG in the MacBook section of their local Théatre Apple. Good crowd reaction, lots of people whipping out cameras.

Back when Apple retail stores first opened, they had actual theaters in the back for demos and presentations. Apparently those were before their time…

And in Los Angeles recently, the cast of the Disney TV-movie Lemonade Mouth performed an unscheduled (but choreographed) song and dance number for an entertained crowd and (mostly) tolerant security staff. Not your average high school musical.

Sheesh. Guess you never know what’s gonna happen at an Apple Store.

    Macs may or may not be superior tools, but this kind of thing is why people mock fanboys/girls.

    I heard that Disney got chewed out about that stunt in the Apple Store. They didn’t ask for permission and it was a huge noise issue and a security issue. Which is also why the staff basically shoved them out of the store as soon as it was confirmed that no they didn’t ask to be allowed to do it.

    ditto.

    I was hoping for a sudden loss of clothing but there were kids in the store. Oh well, she’s still pretty hot. She can’t dance fer shit but she’d look damn good in a whole lot less. :)
