A proud moment in “Hey, Asshole!” history: Our first video footage of an obnoxious concertgoer in action! We’ll let reader Darryl–who shot this a few weeks ago at a Snow Patrol show in San Francisco–set it up for you:
Aw man, this guy was great. At first, you see a guy spazzing out on a crowded floor and you think “What an asshole!” You see him try to squeeze his way into the middle or front of the crowd only to be rejected, and you think, “Yeah, nice try, jerk!”
But then you see him dancing and singing in the back with abandon. And actually try to engage the people that reject him. And actually get hugs and smiles from some of those people, and you think, “Well, maybe he’s not all bad.”
Take a look at Daryl’s caught-in-the-act footage (especially clip No. 2, above) and decide for yourself: Inconsiderate asshole, or endearingly overenthusiastic fan? Either way, we’re pretty sure it’s Norman Cook.
