A DJ is not a DJ without proper duckface technique.

DJ’s often find a second (or first) life in the studio. Just don’t forget to bring your scarf in case of totally awesome explosions.

When I look at this guy’s pose and apparent look of somberness, all I can think of is back in middle school when you’d make sure to have a binder/textbook ready during class periods and the embarrassment that ensued (fellas, you know what I’m talking about. Aloof ladies, think about it).

Ok, so it’s more of an ad using a DJ than an ad for a DJ, but the record-less, needle-less, and hover handing ways of DJ Generic (with an overly smitten clubber) warrants inclusion into this series.
