It's been a long day. A loooooooooooong day. After a long day, I like to smile. The above video helps me accomplish that. I saw it first a few days ago on the WGN morning news. It has made the rounds so there's a chance you've already seen it.
To which I reply, so what.
This video is awesome. You know you want to watch it again. It's a guy in overalls with a Santa beard dancing with a raccoon to Aretha Franklin. You want to watch it over and over and over again.
Or maybe that's just me.
But if you get tired of it – though I don't understand why you would – you can watch more of his videos with his raccoon on his YouTube channel, SwampMusic12. In one of them, he explains how he uses Hannah Montana body spray as raccoon repellent when his pal gets a little too bitey. It is – in a word – miraculous.
Be sure to check in to Going for Gusto tomorrow when we'll have a new list up, probably sometime in the early afternoon.
