Dan Deacon Gets Hipsters To Dance At The Whitney

By brandon / February 11, 2008

Dan Deacon lugged his duct-taped Casio electronics and Sally Jessy specs to NY’s Whitney Museum of American Art this past Friday as part of the Whitney Live series, getting the kids to do the famed “Ethan Hawke!” and “Gattaca!” countdown. Then, of course, they danced.

You can see more clips here. Nothing against Dan — he knows how to party — but these videos make you understand why people hate hipsters. As we’ve learned in the past, though, you sorta had to be there. With all the breathless blog reportage detailing his quips, sing-alongs, and dance taggery … how much longer do you think he can pull off this same show?
