That conductor is crazy. He starts out so well composed, but by the middle of the piece, he's got hair flapping everywhere and looks like a mad man. I love it!

Indeed, oxy. Harrogate will even raise the ante and assert that the hair adds mightily to the Truthiness of the performance.

Yes. We might even say that his hair doesn't follow the movement of the piece, but that it sets the pace.
