What The Hell Is That? No.1: Zumba.

We have some neighbours who spend part of the year in Florida and the rest of the year here in Felpham.
Every year Mrs. Neighbour returns and enthuses about a new way of keeping fit.
This years biggy is 'Zumba'.
All well and good but, somehow, Linda gets dragged into these enthusiasms.
While her and Mrs. Neighbour went off 'Zumbaring' I goggled and found this:

Good grief!
I think I'll stick with my Canadian Airforce Exercise manual.

I fell asleep at 1:23 so I missed the ending.

Canadian Airforce exercise? Wasn't that Keith's preferred system in Mike Leigh's Nuts in May that was recently reshown on BBC4?

If I absolutely had to get involved in some form of 'dancercise' class then I'd prefer this one. The music has almost no development and after each drum beat there's a momentary quiet presumably to suggest an overworked amp like the one you heard on your last trip to Ibiza. And yet strangely when the video is showing, none of this actually matters.

It's more accurately know as the 5BX programme (five basic exercises) and yes, Keith did 5BX.

I can't comment on the linked video other than to say...
No, there's nothing I want to say about that video.

BTW I've never been to Ibiza

I have decided that the video you linked might be more interesting to a man in his middle years had it featured some power tools.

Returning to OSMB52's original video: surely the man on the left in the green trousers must be gay?

Happy as a lark no doubt.
