it's interesting that in the article the author compares the culture of snowboarding and skating with the gay lifestyle. That they are similar because they are, or were once, looked at in a negative light. Homosexuality is a huge issue in our society for many reasons (religious, social stability, std's ...etc), snowboarding and skating share none of those concerns.
Back to the original thread.... I think the video is "having or showing a merry, lively mood". But it made me smile.
