Holy cow. These three guys absolutely CRUSH IT dancing in high heels to a Beyoncé medley. The trio’s fast, fierce, and sexy moves, choreographed by Yanis Marshall (center), took them all the way to the finale of Britain’s Got Talent. Simon Cowell’s not a fan, but we’re crazy-in-love with their skills and their excellent choice of footwear. Big ups to these gents for being their amazing selves and flirting with gender boundaries!
This man is a True Hero. Watch him put on pants without using his hands, in under 40 seconds, to the sounds of Europe’s “Final Countdown.”
This is impossible. I know because I tried it once, just now. By the end of “Final Countdown,” which is five minutes long, I’d only wiggled my pants up to my bum—just about where I’d had them at the 2:46 mark.
So, while I may never be a True Hero such as this gentleman, I think I’ve proved my commitment to True Journalism today.
Surprise, surprise: Harlem residents are all, “WTF? Naw,” over these Harlem Shake videos. While the meme takes its name from the Baauer song used in the hiimrawn video that inspired everyone from College Humor to the Norwegian Army to create their own versions, the dance called “the Harlem shake” was created in 1981 and is actually quite different. Watching the dances side-by-side, it’s no wonder the people in the video above are so aghast.
Over the whole “content without context” thing and want to learn the real Harlem shake? Professor Lock, Director of DanceTouch Collective, has got you covered:
This digital reworking of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” in a major key is hilariously fantastic. Sadly, this video is two years old and seems to be the only one of this kind. I invite you, Internet, to pick up where this guy left off.
^^ This is what I wrote a few days ago and scheduled to be published 7 hours ago. Thanks, tumblr, for inexplicably failing me so that this now becomes a trend piece: Thirty minutes ago, Gawker posted about R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion” reworked in a major key. That article also contains a link to a similar treatment of The Doors’ "Riders on the Storm."Wouldn’t you know, they’re all from the same vimeo user, majorscaledtv. You may want to visit that page for some Django Reinhardt goodness as well.
