Spastic dances and the videos that inspire them

I've been around the internet for some time; I started using when AOL was on version 1.5 or so. In my time I've seen some wonderfully odd and rather terrible things. I'll spare you the terrible and share with you the odd. Without further ado I give you exhibit 1 and 2.

Moskau by Dschinghis Khan (this is work fact share it with a coworker)

Yatta (this is sorta work safe, its shirtless Japanese men wearing skin colored cycling shorts with leaves pasted on to them.)

Now, I know what you're thinking, and yes they are funny but not funny enough to watch multiple times in a day, every single day...let alone funny enough to come up with some kind of silly spastic dance. My roommates would have to disagree with you.

The first part of the dance involves bobbing up and down, a fairly general dance move, though the rhythm leaves something to be desired when they do it. The next part of the dance, however, is where takes a turn. My roomies have dubbed it "The Elephant Mask". In order to perform said dance maneuver start by placing either your right or left palm over your face, now finish by putting your other free arm through the hole. Now move your upper torso around like a dead fish, and flail your arm about. Got that? I'm almost positive this is a dance craze somewhere in the clubs of Eastern Europe.

I don't think I can say much else about it, so with that I bid you good day reader.
