While I was away perfecting my skills of being an awesome hermit, I found I had a lot of time to search out the rare, the odd and the quirky. One day, not too long ago, I stumbled across a charming German man who made me laugh. I mean really laugh, belly jiggling laugh. His name is Flula Borg.
Before coming to America, Flula had a huge cult following. He was a dancer, singer, songwriter and techno DJ. He even had a mainstream hit, "Kuhchen", a response to the Mad Cow crisis in Europe. Genius!
Flula came to America and settled in Los Angeles. Where else? He makes regular appearances at the Viper Room, The Derby and among other venues in LA. Now, this is really big...Flula has participated in the Texas Redneck Games. He was the first non-American to enter the games. And, in true Flula style, he actually won a medal in the Mattress Chunk. What a Renaissance man!
I found Flula on YouTube. His channel's videos are reflections on his life in America, his confusions with the English language and his curiosity with idioms such as "party pooper", "balls to the walls" and "kicking butts and taking names". For some reason he records his videos in his car at odd hours of the morning. I don't know why, maybe it's the acoustics. Anyway, I do hope you enjoy Flula's video and will visit his channel on YouTube.
Without further ado.....I give you Flula!
