ALTERNATE "Work It Out" Single Take

I knew this alternate take was out there somewhere. This is the version that was aired on MTV2. This version is also a single take and has a few more "tricks" in it but I feel my performance is stylistically way weaker and too rushed. I think this was like take 6 or 7. The one that has the pole freeze and a million+ hits that has recieved all the critical acclaim is take 16. Also checkout this FACEBOOK FAN CLUB out of the UK. I had no idea it was there till yesterday.

BENCH 3.0 2008

This video shows my transient presence through the streets of manhattan on a skateboard with a suitcase full of cameras between my legs. Take note of my reflections in the vehicles I pass them with the rig.  Bench is a work within the Shannon Public Works Trilogy. The trilogy consist of divergent attempts at bringing my street performance art, rhythmic and utilitarian skateboarding, streetdance, choreography and clown like rapport with randomn pedestrians to live ticketed audiences in an authentic manner. The key to authenticity, which all the works were designed around, was the preservation of the social fabric of the street and the pedestrian and vehicular trafffic patterns therein.
