Bo Diddley and Civilization

Sometimes, great anthropologists work in indirect ways.

Using two Bo Diddley videos, Michael from 2Blowhards presents irrefutable evidence that civilization declined from 1964 to 1970.

I'd forgotten how cool Bo Diddley was. Michael's analysis of the two audiences is dead-on. Bo was probably thinking, "What is with these people?"

Possible explanations:

  • Faux sophistication;
  • Having to sit on the floor;
  • Stoned and fearful that Bo has turned into a giant woodchuck.
