Metro's television ad campaign for the Silver Line opening didn't stop with quick, silly spots about improving people's job prospects and dating lives. This weekend, just in time for the Saturday opening, this longer commercial will air showing a plethora of thrilled local dancers (including a 78-year-old man named Mr. Leo) busting a move down the street, into the metro station, through the turnstiles and onto the train. Twee-as-crap song "Escapee" by Architecture in Helsinki serves as the background music to this free-for-all and it seems that the new Silver Line riders are so excited that one even continues dancing after he has missed the train. Like that has ever happened in the history of Metro. Check out the video above.
