Mount Allen
We went down, we went down – how far who knows.
Foot loose meets head loose, one frame at a time.

Mount Allen continues the legend of Yellow Kudra, embodied by Johannes Ender. His performance started out as a frame-by-frame recreation of Kevin Bacon's Foot Loose warehouse dance. But something went wrong along the way.
