It's Not Studio 54 But It's Just As Bad (Good?)

Back in the day a guy named Aarif Smaks (or not) was a famed dance instructor. In Finland. Far, far from Studio 54. Diesel has taken (or created) this bit of geriatric disco fever and created a sneaker ad out of it for the brand's Diesel Freezy Sneaker.

Complete with seemingly planted comments like this, "love it... I danced the same way until I put my back out many years ago doing the disco boogie woogie will try again once I get to the diesel store that sell those sneakers. I'll tell my dance troupe on Facebook... love you," the video has achieved 11,768 views on YouTube since being posted yesterday.

Anachronistic video footage + catchy old-school dance music gone techno = seemingly successful viral video.

That is taken directly from an old finnish dance instruction video. The dance instructor is called Åke Blomqvist and he still has his own dance school (http://www.tanssikoulublomqvist.fi/index.htm).
