Let me just state for the record: I am a terrible dancer. I know that. I’m not confused about my dancing status. I’m not up here on Dance Mountain teaching an Advanced Class in I Am the Best Dancer. Most of us are just really bad at it. That doesn’t make it not fun. You just get out there and you do the best you can. Good times. Moving at the speed of light, into eternity. Right, guys? But oh man, for as bad as I may be at dancing I am inversely good at watching other people who are bad at dancing. I could probably watch them all day, no problem. Impressed? It is so fun. Always.

Here are a couple of dudes at Lollapalooza last weekend, just owning the dance floor (dance grass?). They know that no one can Top That their moves.

Look at those dudes groove! Go dudes!

  1. So this is the acceptable kind of racism, then?

  2. Here YOU GO y’all; Learn HOW TO really GET your groove ON:


  3. Those guys dance WAY better than most white people. Is this Sacha Baron Cohen’s next movie trailer?

  4. What’s cooler…his shirt or dance skills? Or maybe his bandaged friend, who obviously injured himself at APW before going to Lolla.

  5. Being on acid is crazy.

  6. Aw, that’s my boyfriend! (I wish).

  7. I SAW HIM! He was acting THE FOOL, but giving credit where it’s due, I have the say, the guy has stamina. He was at this for quite some time.
    It was kind of inspiring to see him dancing with such passion and abandon though… AND IN SUCH INNOVATIVE FASHIONS!

  8. OH MY GOD! I saw these guys!! At first I thought the one guy had a pulled hammy and was stretching it out, but then came the intense ground punching move, and I was like… “man, this guys got moves like you’ve never seen!” (cause it’s true, you have never seen these moves.) I really need to start taking a camcorder to Lolla to help capture these precious moments (and send them to videogum).
    Also, I bet this guy had the BEST tanlines ever when he left–that shirt is BONKERS!

    • *GASP* Maybe we crossed paths!
      I was the Black chick with the shoulder length curly hair (still am) in the orange vintage sun dress.
      You got some Videogum in my RealLife.
      I got some RealLife in your Videogum.

      • Ok. Seriously, you guys. I was there too! You may have gotten some of my errant sweat on you! (I was gamey all weekend).

        My exact comment when I saw these guys jamming to no music near Buckingham Fountain: “I bet that guy wears that shirt to bed so he can catch dreams in it.”

        • OMG you guys, I was there too. I was the guy in the bandanna and the strategically torn shirt but I don’t really remember much of what happened LOL. What’s this post about? I didn’t watch the video.

    • I think this may be what Brandon Flowers was talking about when he asked the age-old question:
      Are we human or are we dancer?

      These guys know the answer.

  9. oh no! he danced so hard he ripped his shirt. :-(

    You’re making fun of the dancing and not mentioning the awful attire? That bizarre guy needs to give Taylor Dayne her shirt back.

  11. The visible socks let you know that you’re in for some pretty sweet dancing.

  12. drugs can make many things better, but apparently not dancing…

    ecstasy, helping white people dance since the 1970s

  14. I’m marrying a complete stranger this weekend, just to have this guy at the reception.The couple is registered at The Guy That Sells Me Drugs.

  15. Let the bass kick = let the ground punch?

  16. That video is a total LOL-apalooza!

    Goodnight, everybody!

  17. Um… I dare you to say that to this guy’s face: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1nzEFMjkI4

    • holy shit. I was wondering when this would start making the ironic rounds. When I was 9, I BEGGED my parents to let me order it. (It would have been so awesome to win friends with my sweet moves! Too bad that wouldn’t have happened!)

  18. So do you think Shakira got her moves from these gentlemens or these gentlemens were studying Shakira?

  19. Sweet drum solo

  20. I love how Knobby-Kneesmagee has his leg taped.

  21. joe  |   Posted on Aug 12th, 2009 -3

    what are the songs playing in the video?

  22. I’ll admit. He upgraded the sprinkler quite nicely. (1:30ish)

  23. I was not there, but if this is the kind of thing that I can see, then I will definitely be going next year.
    Also, guy in the top right, at about 0:23, laying on the ground pumping his legs to the beat, he’s your boyfriend.

  24. You’re obviously not serious about your dancing unless you’re dancing AT the ground

    he did the lawnmower.

  26. He is clearly trying to hard. I prefer the nonchalant attitude of the guy dancing next to him.

    Sweet moves.

  27. I too enjoy the awesome lifestyle drugs afford me.

  28. I have to praise him like I should.

    Also, he’s beating the shit out of that grass.

  29. outstanding!

  30. I find white people dancing well is more funny than white people dancing poorly. This is because I feel threatened by people who do things better than me, so I use teasing and taunting as a cover for my crippling emotional insecurities.

  31. The “half split briefly grab leg place hand on ground slowly break dance to your feet spin in circles” is my favorite dance move.

  32. I’m kind of upset that the video ended.

    Also, I feel monumentally better about my own dancing capabilities.

  33. I enjoyed the fact that the gentleman in shorts seemed to be dancing to a completely different song.

  34. Oh man, the guy in the back is dancing like he’s wearing lederhosen.

  36. If they had jew fros, this could totally be a deleted scene from Step Brothers.

    Do those two dudes know each other, or did one just happen upon the other, two people finding their dance soul mates? I think the cut-out detailing of the first man’s shirt also deserves mention.

    I thought there was an unwritten rule: What happened at Perry’s stage stayed at Perry’s stage. .

    Look at him, he caught the YES!

  40. The second guy really knows what he’s doing though. You gotta load those cargo shorts pockets up with stuff (iPhone, iPod, weed pipe) so you can keep your center of gravity low when you dance!

  41. lolz at the girl running through near the end. like she wanted to be associated with THIS MESS!

  42. Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire were pretty funny, too.

  43. cocaine’s a hell of a drug.

  44. How can we know the dancer from the dance?

  45. Let’s all agree to try to have this much fun with the rest of our summer, okay?

  46. This is like a live-action Second Life dance party

  47. beccafly  |   Posted on Aug 18th, 2009 +1

    I hope he found his contact lense.

  48. Oh. My. God. I am fucking crying I LOLed so hard. The pushups, the – what the fuck has he done to that shirt? That shirt has been meticulously cut into jail cells but he is breaking out of prison with his DANCING MOVES and pushup-ing and the raincoat girls kind of joining in and there’s the girl in the background and someone on the ground doing that bicycle thing with their legs and then fake leg (WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS LEG???) guy comes in, just to give backup. I don’t know how you do it, Gabe.
