    @sora_thekey: @DocHaus: The problem's fixed and the list has been updated.

    I guess one of 'em made it private at first because of the Go-Go Dancer...

    Daniel_Newton moderator on Sept. 25, 2012 at 8:22 p.m.

    One of the best Vice Pit videos yet, and not just because it has sexy dancers in it.

    I demand a mash-up video of Sam's dancing with pounding dance music. It's the only logical thing to do, I think.

    Sorry about that guys. I had it set to embargo, but forget to turn off the private setting on YT.

    We were trying to think some internet equivalent of a velvet rope to hold people back, but ran out of time...

    The clip here is honestly a fraction of Sam's total dance party at AX. I'm not exaggerating that he went on for 10-15 minutes straight. The spirit of the rhythm just took control.

    Certainly one of the most interesting with the Sonic CD sounding music and the dancing clips interspersed. I forget his name but WOW at the guy who said the bar had a line around the corner at 10am.

    What I love about cons the most is just the craziness of being surrounded by cosplayers and people who really love anime and manga and are all going crazy for it nonstop for multiple days straight. Everything else is a distant second.

    @Daniel_Newton: I'll try to put something together....

    @sickVisionz: Yeah, I've been using the Redline soundtrack as backing material, I credited it in the one video and I should add that in the description for this one... but GO BUY THE OFFICIAL RELEASE :)
