Punter behaviour in the crowd gives us the occasional chuckle, but genuine sportsfan gold is few and far between – as evidenced by the recent stream of yawn-worthy (and surely staged) ‘Kiss-Cam’ videos going round.
We’re reliving Boston Celtics diehard Jeremy Fry’s 15 minutes of fame, and his epic performance that saw him anointed the King of crowd involvement for perpetuity.
The undeniably nerdy Fry pulled out this spell-binding routine when Bon Jovi’s 1987 hair-rock anthem ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ blasted out over the loud speakers at The Garden in 2009.
The video has attracted over 16 millions views in the almost six years since, while a 2013 revival of the clip saw ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ surge back into the Billboard Hot 100 at No.25 – 26 years after the track first hit No.1.
And here’s the man himself, lifting the lid on his dance moves and his passion for the Celtics.
