Did you know that a crazy fad once took over the 1920s by storm? No, not flappers, and not any of the other things we generally associate with the ’20s. The fad I’m talking about is pole-sitting. What exactly is pole-sitting? Just take a look at the latest video from the Vanity Fair Decades Series.
The video “Pole Royale,” directed by Lee Hirsch, takes a documentarian approach to researching this wild and quick-lived fad. The fad–which is exactly what it sounds like–created stars out of ordinary citizens, similar to how fads like planking and the YouTube “Harlem Shake” craze have taken over our lives today. Check out the video below the post and see what you think!
Vanity Fair Magazine is having a lot of fun celebrating its 100th anniversary with this cool Decades Series. So far, we’ve seen the ’10s from Gilly Barnes, the ’40s from Nick Hooker, the ’60s from Bryce Dallas Howard, the ’70s from Brett Ratner and the ’80s from Don Cheadle. All of the videos from these guest directors feature unique and fascinating insights from the decades that you might not have thought about.
