Ariana Grande is in the news and most probably will soon be in the courtroom. The singer was caught on video licking doughnuts which weren't hers and didn't purchase (at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, California). She also professed to hate America and Americans.
The incident provides some interesting nonverbal teaching examples. What follows is a partial analysis.
Ariana's first licking the of a donut
Mr. new boyfriend follows suit in what is a criminal act of nonverbal mirroring his singer-starlet-significant other.
Ariana's second licking of the donut
Onlooker/friend (red & green shirt) spots Ariana's faux pas
Friend's eyebrows and forehead elevate and his mouth opens indicative of a facial expression of surprise.
This telling nonverbal may or not involve a full clasping of the hands and it's more often is seen in a partial form expressed with only one hand.
Ariana's third donut licking
Onlooker/friend in colored shirt with his inner eyebrows elevated along with an elevated central forehead contraction and a mild pseudo-mouth smile. In this cluster context this nonverbal sign projects disbelief/incredulity.
As he begins to clasp the back of his heads again, the onlooker performs a false hair adjust. This MAP can be seen in isolation or progressing to the grabbing to the back of his head.
Here the false hair adjust has progressed to holding the back of the head once again.
Ariana Grande's fans find out she has a new boyfriend as they kiss twice during the 0:47 and 0:48 segments.
"What the f_ck is that? - I hate Americans. I hate America." spoken as the donut shop employee comes to their service.
Once again the onlooker assumes his familiar position together with a downward gaze (1:04). He also heavily blushes beginning at 0:54. This onlooker/friend is embarrassed for Ms. Grande. He also believes that Ariana has probably been caught. He was correct.
