Did he really just dis ABBA? Because that is something I may never be able to forgive him for, unless he publicly declares his love for Britney Spears. Then maybe.
Bobby Riggs was almost 30 years older than Billie Jean King when they played in 1973, and Armin's use of the iconic walking man as a juxtaposition to Marian's stylized female figure may be an ingenius nod to that difference. But I'm thinking Armin has a folder full of clip-art sitting on his harddrive.
I do like the nod to Areosmith's "Walk This Way" which peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1977, the year of Armin's birth. Guess what else happened in 1977? Star Wars. By association, obviously, Armin is cool.
Is Armin the Run DMC to Marian's Aerosmith?
