Even if you don’t know much about burlesque, you probably know that it has little to do with men in tight jean shorts and tank tops hula hooping – but don’t let logic get in the way or you’ll miss the hooping splendor that is Andrew Barthel. On any given day in Madison, Wisconsin, you can find him swiveling his hips for literally hours on end in front of Hoi Polloi, a burlesque and rockabilly clothing boutique. The AV Club reports, “Barthel, a master low-voltage technician by day, volunteers his time to bring in business for his friend and store owner Trisan Vincent, who considered closing the store after an especially slow streak last spring. Hula-Hooping while holding a sign in front of the store for nearly 40 days consecutively, Barthel said he’s developed quite a fan base, including drivers who twirl their fingers if he’s taking a break as they pass and a bus driver who likes to shout out on her loudspeaker as she passes. “I think in an odd way I’ve brought the neighborhood together,” he said.
