UK truckers dance

| March 10, 2009

After one Romanian trucker defied logic when he shot a video of himself dancing (quite excitedly and nimbly) about his cab while barreling down a Dutch highway, then sending the video out to media, apparently, and prompting a police search for him, London’s Mirror newspaper solicited other “>dancing trucker” videos, some of which are now online here in a “>Top 10 Juggernaut Jivers” list.

While certainly more tame than the original dancing trucker, these drivers won’t likely win any safety awards, it’s sure. They might be commendable in another sense, but I’ll leave it up to you to determine whether the fun had is worth it. (Beware, at least one of these guys is missing his shirt, if not more of his ensemble.)
