This is a MASSIVE over-analysis of a Robbie Williams performance. I'm fully aware that this is over the top, but I wanted to demonstrate how many tiny little nuances go on in an interaction. I've met and watched a number of community guys who don't seem to be able to read the subtleties of an interaction...starting out, a lot of people have the theory and concepts (whether it's routines or woo), but they can't seem to tell when the vibe changes or someone needs attention or how much they can get away with or when they should escalate.

I saw this performance on TV years before I heard about the community and I remember thinking "wow, who IS that guy? THAT is charisma!" Found out a few years into the community who he was and this clip in particular is a favorite of mine because he goes from zero state to raging numbus glory!

He does this in a number of other performances, doing ridiculous things (the way we might play patty-cake or make animal noises) to get himself out of his head and in the moment. Being live on stage forces him to push through his anxiety the way we should...and as he pushes, it all falls into line.

Unfortunately Robin lacks the raw sexuality (intent), which Robbie Williams has in spades.

That's pretty awesome.

It sure as hell made me conscious of the fact that he really is more inside his head just like we all are at the start of the song. He starts off with an 'easy' approach and you can see he's a bit anxious but he just feels it, owns it and goes regardless. Then he builds it up and he gets to tool Mr. Cool cross-armed man and everyone loves it teeth
