Have you seen, or do you know this man? Firstly, please watch the video (above) and then maybe you’ll do all you can to help us with our enquiries.
This Scomadi-loving eccentric seems to be taking YouTube by storm with his wacky spoof videos, many of which are based around the ‘modern classic’ scooter. His YouTube channel ‘Jazzswingdance’ has had well over a million views already, which is quite disturbing.
Scomadi Volare (above) is the latest offering, sung in a crooner style, it contains the following rather catchy lyrics:
I want a scooter that doesn’t break down all the time.
Don’t mind if its plastic and even bright orange is fine.
Just need a scooter that looks like it oozes real style.
Just need a scooter that goes fast when racing a mile.
Scomadi, Scomo, a scooter, a twist and go.
Hop on, one twist and you’re off,
but then one trip’s not enough.
You go riding and riding until you have got to refuel.
And then riding and riding ’til you are the essence of cool.
You go riding and riding and then you dismount from this jewel.
The ‘artiste’ behind the song (and others of a similar vein) is also responsible for a new phenomenon, a fusion of 20s dance and exercise called, Charleston Ercise. His cult is already picking up fans around the world, including London-based scooter rider, Tony Higgs. Tony can’t get out of the house without doing a quick hand-jive to the modern take on old 1960s classic, the LambreTwist. Tony told us;
“This crooner is way cooler than my Lambretta, I can’t get enough of his music.”
At ScooterLab, we first became aware of the Scomadi Twist (above) almost a year ago, but decided to leave it where we found it.
Sadly after receiving repeated requests from desperate London Lambretta Club member, Tony, we decided we’d use our army of scooter fans to try and track down our mystery crooner.
If you know him, know his whereabouts and can help in our quest drop us a line at editorial@ScooterLab.UK and we’ll find out why this man has such an unhealthy obsession with his orange Scomadi. We may even get Tony to star in his next video…
What do you think of the video; charming or cheesy? You can have your say in the comments section below this post.
