The "I Charleston" phenomenon is one of my favorite swing memes, if I can call it that. Started by some Frenchy lindy hoppers, basically any swing scene in the world can create an "I Charleston" video showing their local dancers charlestoning and doing solo jazz in notables spots in their city and put it online for the world to enjoy. It's really blossomed over the past year to include such far flung places as Tel Aviv, Minsk and Hong Kong!
If you thought you had seen it all, check out Nashville's very impressive contribution to the series. It's got an incredibly catchy song (C2C's "Happy"), awesome dancing (choregraphed by Jon Tigert), beautiful cinematography, and very scenic locales.
