Hey, hi, hello! So, I've been seeing that clip of Dan and Phil dancing to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud a lot of times but I just noticed that Dan actually got jumpscared by the realisation of being filmed (?) and instantly backed up, while Phil, however, just finished his spinning and looked towards the camera. Do you have any ideas why did Dan act like this? Have a good day!
i personally don’t think that it is anything that deep tbh :p it was a pretty scripted moment (iconic but scripted). pretty much like you said, it was dan twirling phil and then realizing the camera is on and having to be like ‘aw shit, the camera’s on, phil stop dancing, no’ but you know, phil not giving a shit and is going to dance his heart out. ‘technical difficulties’ these days
