Jerome Murat A short video of a performance by Jerome Murat that is part Circ du Soliel and one of those human statues you see in Paris, New York and Florence and places like that. Amazing how music and pantomime can be so effective.

Cirque du Soleil. It's French.

No, it's Canadian.

Gotta love guys with the name Jerome *cough*

I couldn't stand how the audience kept clapping for every little feature. Seems to me the kind of performance where you wait til the end then unload. So really, spectators should treat this performance like their girlfriend.

Applaud on his face? I don't get it.

As long as they're giving him the clap.

No, it's Canadian.

The words, I meant the words are French. I don't care where the performers are from.

The song -- "On Earth As It Is In Heaven" by Ennio Morricone from the film "The Mission" -- is from one of the best soundtracks ever.

Wow, that was dull.

I was just thinking it was a horrible choice of music. It didn't match the piece at all and I kept picture De Niro and Irons running around in the jungle.

I'm with unSane, that was dull. (And when the audience decided to clap was baffling).

The whole act makes me think this guy saw Steve Martin and his amazing fly on Carson and thought he should take the idea in a more "artistic" direction.

How to get ahead in advertising redux.

Whimsical light entertainment. With too much clapping.

The pace dragged and the whole thing could have been shorter plus the audience was really distracting and but I liked the general idea of the piece.

Thanks for posting melkozek, I found it rather creepily cool. I think you found a fairly interesting thing for your first post, but it is a tough crowd here. Don't let that deter you - just jump into the fray.

one of the best soundtracks ever. - agreed!

I, for one, thought that was amazing. Still have no idea how the final trick is done.
