George W Bush was coached by his managers to alter his walking style. He learned to turn his arms so that, as he walked, the backs of his hands would face forwards.

That pitches the elbows out and this additional apparent bulk is believed to make scrawny types look more imposing when seen on TV.

The trend has made it here now.

If you are quick you can catch Colin Craig on the six pm news on TV1's plus one channel.

Aha - so reversing the logic, if I walk with my palms facing forward, will I look slimmer? Best diet ever.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I remember seeing that, which prompted a big 'WTF is that walk for real' to my wife. So it makes you walk like a big imposing door knob :)

If its anything like Colin Craigs walk then you will just look like a large chimp.

Speaking of tree dwellers, I couldnt help but think in that linked clip, Craig walks like a chimp, Norman looks like one.

I've found that when riding my motorcycle if I have a machete slung across my back I get much more respect ...

Oh dear, he's hilarious. (Please don't sue me, Colin!)



I've made a very poor gif, but won't embed it and risk the wrath of the boss.

Cheers,
Joseph

Now that's a real dork walk. What a tosser - if he gets to form a government he could be Minister of Silly Walks (with apologies to .... was it Monty Python?)

I'm sure Colin doesn't believe that we descended from the apes - yet despite some evidence above - you'll have a hard job convincing him we descended from penguins.
