Life imitating (and surpassing) art

An overweight, star wars loving teenager has swept the internet with a non too acrobatic Light Saber Dance complete with a broomstick for a light saber and selfmade swoosh noises for the light saber. Or maybe the kid is really a very cool media juggler posing as an insecure kid. At least his performance mimics the hilarious artwork of Peter Land a danish artist doing roughly the same thing, sacrificing the privacy of his own nonacrobatic body in a series of deliberately embarrasing scenes where Land, either clumsy, drunk or both performs for the camera - sometimes naked, sometimes not.

In an uncharacteristically nice and gentle turn of events, some of the people laughing at this new internet craze decided to try and raise some money to compensate the poor kid for being laughed at. They have sofar come up with >2000$. Nice going.
