Google I/O + Elaine's dance from Seinfeld = AWESOME

Image
Let me give you a reason to love  +Google+ ... Google just started their huge I/O conference this week and they have this thing going where you can take a public post with #request , and a Google employee at the conference will try desperately to meet that request. It's pretty cool, honestly. Well, in classic fashion, I couldn't help myself. I decided somebody needed to make an outlandish request. And here is what I did... div.dittoboxgooglez13fsjcqfv3ntxde5222u3to2mmait0d1 { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; } div.innerdittoboxgooglez13fsjcqfv3ntxde5222u3to2mmait0d1 { background-color: #FFF; padding: 10px; } div.innerdittoboxgooglez13fsjcqfv3ntxde5222u3to2mmait0d1 div.dittoPost { text-align: left; margin: 0 0 0 60px; min-height: 50px; color: #000; font-size: 13px!important; line-height: 18px; border: 1px solid #CCC; padding: 10px; -moz-border-radius: 4px; border-radius: 4px; } div.innerdittoboxgooglez13fsjcqfv3ntxde5222u3to2mmait0d1 div.pic { display

Nathan Weaver 6 minutes ago + Melissa Daniels  : I have a #request . Can you get footage of yourself doing the Elaine awkward/white girl dance from Seinfeld ? This is my one silly request, I guess. I just wanna see all the looks on folks' faces as you get the kicks and arms flailing. PS--If you meet my request, I will film a short clip of me turning around and saying, "Sweet fancy Moses!" ------- Update: #request  fullfilled.
