What’s in a name? Well, unlike the famous words uttered by Juliet, there’s a lot of meaning in the name ‘Tube’ given to Nokia’s latest touchscreen handset. Now the Tube has figuratively pulled into the station, all sorts of details are emerging. Some people think it’s a pile of pants. Others think it’s the best thing since
sliced bread the iPhone. But personal opinions aside, this isn’t about what people think, this is about looking at the Tube as more than just an allusion to that unbearable sweatbox we call public transport.
The unusual name given to Nokia’s handset actually refers to a new dance. I don’t think I’m alone by saying how unbelievably irritating it is when everyone latches onto the latest cringe-inducing dance craze and performs it at any given opportune moment (and sometime not so opportune). But on the flipside, there’s no denying these dance crazes unite clubbers and dance enthusiasts as one, as they come together to perform their little hearts out. The Tube even has its own five location UK tour, and a student dance competition to ensure the latest dance craze hits the masses (because students are the only people that dance?).
So the next time you’re in a club and you can see someone clearing the area for some potentially elaborate dance moves, they could be doing The Tube… or Soulja Boy’s Crank That, or Skepta’s Rolex Sweep, or the Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes (there are just toooooo many).
