Soldiers Dance To The Beat Of A Different Drum

Everyone was sharing this clip last week.


Several IDF soldiers were break-dancing at the Central Bus Station while waiting for their buses. They took turns jumping into the circle and showing off their considerable dance skills to an enthusiastic crowd.

It was spontaneous. It was cool. And it was the IDF and Israelis love their chayalim, so the clip went viral.
But watching the clip, I couldn’t help thinking it was kind of grainy and the dancing wasn’t stellar.
Drummer
For me, it was all about the drummer. Man, can that guy ever percuss (is that even a word?). The dancers were okay, and they’re our guys, but with nothing but overturned buckets and some sticks, that drummer totally rocked the scene.
