Friday Video: An 18th c. Gentleman Longboards Through Bath

Friday, August 2, 2013

Isabella reporting,

A surprisingly energetic video for a lazy Friday in August! Combine an 18th c. gentleman (well, at least that's what he's supposed to be) on a longboard, the beautiful streets of Bath, and a dash of Iron Maiden, and you get Georgian shredding, dude.

Thanks to fellow blogger Marie Antoinette's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century for posting this first on Twitter!

I particularly like how nobody seems overly disturbed or even interested in a man in 18th century dress longboarding through the city... leading me to suspect we place way too much emphasis on "what not to wear."

Since evidently not too many people really care what we're wearing.

Thanks for the mention!
This is hilarious-Every time I watch it! I just wish I was there to see it happen, although I am sure I would not have been able to handle myself :)

Love it! Bath is quite the town, it doesn't surprise me that no one even looked at a guy in 18th century dress longboarding through the city :)

If only boarders today were so polite . . .

Sweet! Very well filmed, too!

To be fair, people in fancy dress are two a penny in Bath. Most people's attitude is simply to ignore it because a) it's commonplace and b) (gross generalisation klaxon) British people are a bit uncomfortable with showing off but don't want to be rude.
