This is a an odd video. I cut my drag teeth with Ru in clubs in Atlanta and he could dance like nobody's business. But by the time this video was made, Ru had decided that he was not going to be another sweaty drag queen so he's going for what one of our other roommates, Lahoma Van Zandt, described as "Dietrich at 70." Basically, just standing there and looking gorgeous, which he's still very good at and and that's one helluva wig. But it does seem very odd that at the height of his career as a dance artist with the hit Supermodel, he chose the stately, elegant route rather than no getting down whatsoever. A strange time capsule.
