Welcome to Last Call. Dropping every Friday, this column serves as a wrap-up of our favorite stories and videos from the week—some old, some new, but all worthy of attention.
Prancersising is Cooler than You Think
“We're gonna really cut it loose and cut the noose with the Prancercise gallop.” With a statement like that, how could anyone not want to get involved with the new fitness craze, Prancercising? As seen in is this video, Prancercising is the new hot shit, and clearly the best way to stay in shape this summer. Yeah, it sucks there's not much snow right now, but who really cares when you can spend your time prancing about? We're backing this workout trend—along with its six million viewers—and think you should to. Because when in doubt, prance it out homies.
Big Kids Still Play in the Dirt
Watch Lines of Lofoten for the biking. Watch it for the scenery. Watch it for the gratuitous shots of big kids playing in the dirt—but whatever you do, just watch it. Thanks to Antimedia and a stacked crew of riders, your jaw will drop. Once you pick it up from the floor, you better hop on the prancersising bandwagon. After a solid season of prancing, you may be ready to throw down like the big kids.
Everybody Hates Steven!!!
There was a time when I thought I wouldn’t condone behavior like this. Then I realized that if I had embraced my awkward 13-year-old self, my Instagram account would probably be more popular today. But that’s not the point. This kid is hilarious, and is doing everything his perverse little imagination comes up with. In short Steven Fernandez is awesome because he’s acting out every junior high kid’s fantasies. This is universal, because none of us mature after junior high anyways.
Consider The Spokesman to be a love letter to bikes—as well as a three minute history of them. The film focuses on James, who has collected a bike from every major era in cycling’s development. Regardless of whether you're a cyclist or someone who runs them off the road, you can appreciate the passion and history in this clip.
