Air Guitar Showmanship

And from only in Memphis:

This guy (an interview) is my hero because he's transformed a probable soul-killing job into entertainment for him and us, and attention for his employer.

Plus he's an heir of Kemmons Wilson's commercial roadside showmanship.

My wife and I pass that kid all of the time. We actually hope to get stopped by the light at the intersection just so we can watch him a little longer. It's no surprise that he loves Metallica, but I hope he loves Iron Maiden too.

He could broadcast a low wattage radio signal, like the drive-in, so we could tune in as we drive by. It could have intermittent micro-ads like "5.99 for a 4 topping pizza at Little Caesars".
