So that guy you see twirling the sign on the side of the road? He's probably listening to Slayer
Alright, how many times have you driven past that dude on the corner, the one twirling his sign like a madman, and thought to yourself Wow! That dude is rocking out. Wonder what the hell he's listening to? Wonder no more. Mystery solved. It's Slayer. At least that's what this particular gentleman was listening to. How do we know? Why, we stopped the car and asked, of course. Duh! Keep reading to see Eric the Vampire Slayer's awesome dance moves, along with GIFs of the other sign flying sensations we met this past weekend.
Gabe, 22, Thornton
We spotted Gabe slinging this arrow for Rocky Mountain Gems (thus, the "We Buy Gold"). Top five acts on his phone:
1. Foreign Beggars
2. Aesop Rock
3. Action Bronson
4. Sweatshop Union
James, 18, Northglenn
We drove by James as he was doing his thing for Twisted Scissors (evoking the name of the band fronted by a guy sporting one of hair metal's most iconic manes just may be the best idea ever for a salon -- just saying). Top five acts on James's iPod:
1. Thashmob (his own band, shameless plug)
2. Wiz Khalifa
3. Mellow Hype
4. Led Zeppelin
5. A$AP Rocky
Sean, 23, Northglenn
When we caught up with Sean this past weekend, he was in mid spin generating interest for Crestwood Apartments in Northglenn on Claude Court, showcasing his seasoned sign twirling prowess while jamming out to an iPod nano. On his playlist:
1. Linkin Park
4. Busta Rhymes
5. Dr. Dre
Eric, 40, Northglenn
Although Eric -- seen here in action pointing the way to Integrity Gold in Northglenn this past Saturday -- may be the oldest guy of the bunch featured here, he boasted the slickest moves we saw all day by far. Not only that, turns out, he's also a little old school, busting the moves to "Bloodline" by Slayer from the Dracula 2000 soundtrack -- on a portable gold Discman! Other bands appearing on the soundtrack from the Wes Craven flick include System of a Down, Pantera, Disturbed, Monster Magnet and more. Check the swag. Dance, Eric, dance. Do your thing, man.
