I cannot tell you how many times I have stopped at an intersection only to encounter another in a convertible who turned up their stereo system and stared longingly at me. Not knowing what to do, I just slammed the gas pedal to the floor and “gun it and run it”. If only I had seen this video from Sanyo, I would have realized that this was part of some disco dancer pairing ritual. I still would have gotten through that intersection as quickly as possible, but at least armed with this knowledge, I could appreciate the cultural significance of the encounter.
