Video imagines Dan Smith of ‘Dan Smith Will Teach You Guitar’ as talented but creepy recluse

by -

We’ve all seen New York City’s ubiquitous “Dan Smith Will Teach You Guitar” flyers hanging up in subway stations and on phone booths, but does anyone know someone who’s actually taken a lesson with the man? Comedian Rekha Shankar emailed us the above video, telling us that she hasn’t met a single person who’s taken him up on his offer, so she imagined Smith as a virtuoso recluse who maybe doesn’t have the best grasp on how to promote himself or what year it is. It’s creepy enough for Halloween, but we won’t spoil the twist ending except to say it was Shyamalan-esque. Good Shyamalan, not The Village Shyamalan.
