Kevin loves books.

Aaron Read, of Vancouver’s infamous comedy troupe The Sunday Service achieved internet notoriety a few months ago when he spent a full hour dancing to the looped theme song from Becker. Not just casual dancing either, but a sort of improvised jazz wriggling that utilized his entire body. He also built a story into the dance, scattering in little suggestions that this man’s life is falling apart around him as he dances. It’s very crazy, but crazy fun to watch.

Anyway, you get the idea: Aaron is a brilliant comedian and artist, and he’s at it again with his new track “Kevin Loves Books.” Ostensibly a Christmas (or Xmas) gift to fellow Service member Kevin Lee, it’s really a gift to the world. You’ll be humming this track for weeks.


And just in case you didn’t see it the first time around, here’s the Becker video. The AV Club even wrote about it, so it just has to be good.
