Andrew Garfield, Please Accept Us Into Your Dance School

|

What would we give to have a fraction of Ellen DeGeneres’ power to make celebrities do the silliest things. At the same time, we’d like to think it took little convincing to get Andrew Garfield to agree to dance on command — for charity! — in a segment for today’s show. We haven’t gotten to see the new Spider-Man cut loose too much on screen, but anyone with the Emma Stone seal of approval has to have a good sense of humor about himself. We had no idea he had these hidden dance skills, though. In 45 seconds (well, a little over, since Ellen didn’t change the cards fast enough and let him go past the buzzer), the Amazing Spider-Man star demonstrated the Irish jig, the robot, Gangnam Style, vogue, ballet, the shopping cart, the “Single Ladies,” belly dancing, the Pee-Wee Herman and the can-can. And he managed to get Shutterfly to donate $10,000 to the Worldwide Orphans Foundation in the process. (That’s really why we enjoyed watching it, right?)

We think this photo should be hung up in dance studios across the world … for inspiration as much as instruction.
