Philippe Candeloro as George of the Jungle - they just don’t make skaters like that anymore ;)

I accidentally stumbled across this - it’s hilarious and completely insane *grin*

I haven’t seen Candeloro for ages (he retired about when I started to watch skating - that was 1998). Technically he’s no match for the skaters of today, but for the theatrical content… skaters today just don’t get that theatrical - even at exhibition shows :] Actually it’s kind of weird cause usually there would be at least one French guy who would be very theatrical or very weird in some other way, but nowadays they’re all relatively conventional *sigh*
