We here at BabaHQ are feeling all sorts of dopey squishy from this wonderful shift into Fall, and digging through the slums of commercial yoga culture just wasn’t in the cards this weekend. Whenever that happens, there’s only one thing that can save the day: Wai Lana!
I’m sure many of you have come across this at some point, so there’s not much that really needs to be said. Basically, the video has it all:
- a body suit
- some ill-tastic double overhead surf
- a repeated shout-out to “Madonna” whom I’m guessing is meant to be the Virgin Mary and not Madonna (surname: Ciccone)
- and, whistling that reminds me of “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”
One would think that a video like Wai Lana’s would get crucified in the YouTube comments section, but in reality it’s just the opposite. People LOVE Wai Lana!
To get a sense of how much people really are into her one need only look at her Facebook page, which has roughly 13,000 likes! Compare that to Elena Brower’s Facebook page, “Elena Brower Truth,” the title of which makes me wanna gag, coming in at around 14,000 likes, and you gotta wonder: who the hell are Wai Lana’s fans???
Ech, but when you look outside this insular yoga world (of which Wai Lana is on the outside I think), you realize this is all just a drop in the bucket. I mean, ex-Van Halen singer, David Lee Roth has got roughly 57,000 likes on his page, more than four times as many as Brower.
But, then again ex-Van Halen singer #2, Sammy Hagar, has got 83,000!
Which just seems wrong.
But, don’t worry. They’re all just little baby-babies compared to the big guns.
