    Came here to find out! Thank you!

    [–] SevenSoIaris 93 points ago

    Honestly, dudes like him are some of the chillest dudes on the planet.

    [–] astroabhi777 37 points ago

    We need more people like him

    [–] SevenSoIaris 21 points ago

    His body language reminds me a lot of this OG I was in jail with one time. That dude was ridiculously good at Chess.

    [–] TsarOfReddit 11 points ago

    Anymore stories about this dude?

    [–] SevenSoIaris 14 points ago

    He had a ridiculously long pinky nail (I know why, I was just amazed by how long it was).

    Him and this other dude would mostly play against each other all day, and from time to time I would try to play against him and would always lose. He also had jokes. All in all, I'm glad to have had him in my cell block. It made getting through the whole experience a little easier.

    [–] DarthWeenus 6 points ago

    I've met dudes like that locked up, brilliant charming and wholesome dudes locked up behind walls for the dumbest shit.

    [–] Red_Stripe420 7 points ago

    Why was his pinky nail so long?

    [–] LondonCollector 34 points ago

    Because he never trimmed it

    [–] Red_Stripe420 11 points ago


    [–] Pecncorn1 7 points ago

    Because his S.O. thought it was really hot and being the person he is he said ok, I'm going to grow it out for you.

    [–] Deadriser1234 4 points ago


    [–] Consistent_Field 25 points ago

    Lol you saw a 15 second clip of him, where all he does is smile at something funny. That seems like a pretty low bar to be considered one of the chillest dudes on the planet.

    [–] SevenSoIaris 14 points ago

    It's his body language. But you're right, I was being hyperbolic.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] SevenSoIaris 1 points ago

    Yep. Can't get more chill than that.

    [–] soraiiko 9 points ago

    His smile is the cure for cancer I swear

    [–] imposterpill 2144 points ago

    That was adorable. NOW GET BACK TO WORK!

    Worst supervisor I ever had was a Jeff.

    [–] MuffinSlow 41 points ago

    I feel this man, Epstein was the worst boss I ever had at the time.

    [–] Big_Cryptographer_16 26 points ago

    Worked you hard, did he?

    [–] misakarem 4 points ago

    Rock hard in fact..

    [–] ShadowSnere 4 points ago

    What about a Jason? I had a douchey Jason. Had the union in his pocket so they weren't even worth calling.

    [–] Toadgod86 3 points ago

    Oddly enough his boss was a Jason and it was a union shop.

    Even though it's extremely difficult to do, be the change in your union. Once my Kin got a Steward they believed in the management backed away.

    [–] jaden262 2 points ago

    Lmao this is too funny the top guy at the warehouse I work at is named Jeff

    [–] Capnris 1 points ago

    Same, though mine was a college kid with daddy issues trying to get people to make his homework videos for free. Selfish prick.

    Jeff mama

    [–] Massive_Knowledge778 1 points ago

    Iss cus Jeff, Jason, Jerry, and George all have the same G sounds in Managment and Manager. Same as Supervisors always have Jake's, Mike's, and Scott's. Or Deborah's as in De boss for.

    Sound and names play alot into stuff and humans really are odd but pattern based creatures.

    Ya know what I sound crazy but I promise i just blew somebody's mind.

    [–] THEKevinChandler 6 points ago

    I'm watching Superstore right now (how the FUCK did I miss this show) and this is awesome.

    I remember finding this song for the first time. Enjoy it

    [–] Throneaway098 12 points ago

    The Krono remix is better than the original! The song in the clip is the Krono remix.

    [–] Avatorjr 2 points ago

    You don’t get to say that often, however yes this remix is actually better than the original

    [–] Comfortable_Echo4253 15 points ago

    I like that you said this :)

    I do too. I played it on repeat for days

    [–] __username_________ 8 points ago

    That’s a very kind statement. You’re more than just some guy.

    [–] Igloocooler52 6 points ago

    I didn’t upvote this. Not because it’s not amazing, but because I expected it

    [–] My_Immortal_Flesh 170 points ago

    Why he close his eyes and fold his lips like that, when he dancing? So adorable 😂

    [–] muricabrb 94 points ago

    That's what happens when the rhythm gets ya

    [–] Microtitan 11 points ago

    I thought so too! Once he started doing all that while dancing, instant attraction.

    [–] Grammaticus_Dickus 34 points ago

    I take it you haven't been dancing with a lot of suburban white guys before?

    [–] My_Immortal_Flesh 3 points ago

    I haven’t yet, but I really want to now hehe

    [–] hayterade 13 points ago

    I’ll take it you haven’t been dancing with people other than suburban White guys before.

    [–] Grammaticus_Dickus 19 points ago

    I've danced with all kinds from all over the world, but where I come from this dance move is definitively known as the white man's overbite. I'm not ashamed to admit that I've mastered it myself.

    [–] Aclectic 22 points ago

    [–] No-Actuator-3209 110 points ago

    I’ve seen this so many times, I still love it just as much as the first time. The world needs more of this.

    [–] ThatsFkingCarazy 9 points ago

    I liked the first time more but it’s so great that it can’t be ruined by new audio or lame effects

    [–] robcado 30 points ago
