Exclusive: Video Of The Man From Another Place Dancing On A Car Outside The Roadhouse

Ever wondered what exactly was going on in that fascinating picture of Michael J. Anderson on the hood of a Chevy that has “Let’s rock” written all over it?

Thanks to the Northwest Passage crew, Welcome to Twin Peaks is pleased to premiere the video footage of this surreal moment! Back their doc on Kickstarter if you haven’t yet.

Shot by Mark Lyons at the 1994 Twin Peaks Festival, the video takes us back to the Colonial Inn in Fall City which doubled as the exterior of the Roadhouse. Inside, the celebrity banquet is going on with Catherine E. Coulson, Al Strobel and other cast members (check out the cameo of the log!). Out in the parking lot, Michael J. Anderson and some fans come across said car with the Man From Another Place’s famous opening line. Next thing you know, Mike gets on the hood and starts doing the dance of the dream man like only he can.
