Why Did Dancing Even Exist Before We Could Win The Chance To Dance Next To Beyonce?

Pepsi Announces Contest To Dance With Beyonce At Superbowl

We don’t know if anyone knows the answer to this but why exactly did people dance before they knew about Beyonce‘s Super Bowl contest? What was the point exactly? We remember learning the Macarena in sixth grade, and that was over a decade before we even knew Beyonce would perform at the Super Bowl! We only ask because Pepsi announced today that 50 fans would be picked to accompany Bey onstage this February 3 for her Bowl performance. There must have been some deep, primordial knowledge guiding our ancestors’ feet, because obviously the history of human dance has been leading up to this one opportunity. We knew there had to be a reasonable explanation for why we’re still forced to do the Electric Slide at weddings…

According to the contest rules, fans should summit photos of themselves dancing by January 11; 100 photos will appear in a new Bey-centric Pepsi commercial, and 50 will actually appear with Beyonce in meat space. We’re assuming they must pick the 50 coolest dance moves when deciding who gets to go to New Orleans, so one else do the Robot! Especially the move where you make your arm swing back and forth like it’s on a broken hinge. That one is ours.

Jen Aniston Forces Justin Theroux To Breakdance For Ellen’s Amusement

Jennifer Aniston, we figured out why you’ve allegedly had such trouble settling down. It’s because you knew, deep in your heart, that somewhere out there was a man who you could make breakdance for your entertainment whenever you wanted. You were so right to wait. “Ever since she saw Zoolander, she’s been obsessed with making me breakdance,” Justin Theroux said of his costar and lady love while visiting The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. So obsessed, in fact, that Aniston shipped Theroux’s special breakdancing shoes directly to Ellen thus forcing her man to bust a move on-set. Jen and Justin: they may have met during the filming of the upcoming Wanderlust, but they fell in love between a basic toprock and a suicide corkscrew. No word, however, on who made Justin to wear those jeggings.

Jersey Shore’s Vinny Dances With Kids. And It’s Mezmerizing.

We admit that on the surface, a video of Vinny Guadagnino dancing with children doesn’t sound all that interesting. But that’s where you’re wrong. So very very wrong.  For some reason, this clip of the Jersey Shore star showing off his old-man-at-a-wedding dance moves has us completely under its spell. Take a hike, OK Go. There’s a new music video king in town! The masterpiece starts with Vinny asleep on the couch, before he wakes up and presses play on Foster The People‘s insanely catchy ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.  His body soon starts to succumb to the beats, while children pop out of nowhere to join in. From then on it’s four-and-a-half minutes of one-take glory destined to go viral. The zillion times we’ve watched it so far will make sure of that. Vinny is officially the coolest baby sitter of all time.
