Shawn Ahern '10 on America's Got Talent
This just in: Shawn Ahern '10 will appear tonight, Wednesday, August 10, 2011, on America's Got Talent. As a member of the dance troupe, Pilobolus, he's in a music video with the indie-rock band OK Go that will be featured on tonight's show. Catch him at 9 p.m. Eastern on NBC.
It was just a year ago that newly minted alum Shawn Ahern '10 tucked his diploma and his contract with the world-renowned dance troupe Pilobolus into his suitcase and leapt into the world of professional dance.
Talk about opportunity knocking! A year later, internet giant Google searches for the perfect medium to showcase the cutting-edge technology in its new web browser, Chrome, and guess what they come up with? You got it-a video of Pilobolus' latest edgy visual brilliance, featuring KSC's own Shawn Ahern.
You can watch the video on YouTube (including a fun look behind the scenes, where you'll see more of Shawn), but, since Google is using it to highlight its latest browser technology, you'll need to watch it on Google Chrome for the maximum experience (download Google Chrome, and then, from Chrome, visit this link).
That includes inviting you to type in a message, which the Pilobolus gang will spell out at the end of the video. Be prepared to be amazed.
