On June 18th, 2010, “Struttin’” was uploaded to YouTube by user Schmoove2k6, showing an elderly man interrupting a news report. From what is said in the footage, he appeared to be a local resident of Huntsville, Alabama. The man complains about walking, and “struttin’ that ass.” As of October, 2010, the YouTube clip has over one million views.
Origin of Local Newscast
Judging from the mention of Huntsville in the video, and the number 19 on the reporter’s microphone, it appears that the clip originated on local news station WHNT 19. It’s not clear when the video was recorded. Judging from the appearance of the automobiles in the background it looks to be from the mid 1990’s. The identities of the reporter and the older gentleman are unknown.
