“The Stroll” was a slow rock n roll dance popular into the mid to late 1950s embraced by cool teens across America. Classic concept: boys on one side, girls on the other – the paired up couples then strut their stuff down the line. A precursor to the iconic Soul Train Line … we can’t help feel something spooky watching these teens slowly glide down the line in one of the original “strolls” captured on television.
Getting major Lynch vibes here . . . not sure exactly what it is? Perhaps it’s their eerily slow movements, and often times, complete lack of expression. Maybe its the grainy quality of the video and wondering where exactly this was filmed – the atmosphere is so strange.
But most definitely the fact that all this is but mere memory, and who knows what became of these kids or where they are now…
We might never know.
But we’d love to know what you thought, so leave a comment below!

Oh yeah – a definite David Lynch vibe here. The footage is a bit creepy, but fascinating!
