That time yoga became a marketing stunt for everyone’s favorite Hootie-turned-honky tonk. That is, of course, Darius Rucker, formerly of Hootie and the Blowfish getting creative to promote his new country music album. As a 90s rocker trying to stay relevant, Darius Rucker donned his best “try anything once” cap and unrolled his yoga mat for a gimmicky, yet somehow admirably earnest attempt at his first yoga practice. (His response to learning what “namaste” means is sort of adorable.)
The yoga, which Darius appears to enjoy(?), is part of the publicity campaign for his new album When Was the Last Time which includes his first single “The First Time” with the lyrics “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” Hence, a newbie yoga session for our entertainment purposes.
It’s a stunt for sure, but maybe he’ll continue with it? Get his own Dariasana themed class a la Namasdrake? Would be a hoot.
The yoga teacher might just let him cry. But he doesn’t need anyone to hold his hand. He only wants to be with yoooo…ga.
