Walk AwayPosted: February 11, 2008
It’s baaaaaack. Just when I thought it was safe to surf the internet without undo embarrassment, the clip mocking me on The Daily Show has returned. You may remember when All Saints’ was featured on ABC’s Nightline when we held a “U2charist” in 2006: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MfPrkkzc3k
Jon Stewart of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” subsequently poked fun of the whole concept. He was particularly enamored with my dancing ability. Okay, I have none. I think the last time I had danced in public was at my wedding. Someone (Bryna!) grabbed me to dance to the last song — “Walk Away (I will follow)” — at the end of the service. The Nightline clip lasted about 3 seconds but that’s what piqued Mr. Stewart’s fancy.
When it first aired, someone immediately posted it on youtube (gotta love friends) but it only lasted a few days because of the Viacom lawsuit. Well, now it’s on the Comedy Central website: http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/index.jhtml?videoId=118984&title=this-week-in-god-christmas
One more thing to give up this Lent: dancing on national television.
