Stow Your Second-Hand Embarrassment and Watch Billy Dee Williams Do a Star Wars Cha Cha On Dancing With the Stars

To be fair to Billy Dee, it’s less him in particular I find embarrassing and more this entire show. It just makes me cringe. Even that snazzy Lando-esque cape with the spangly gold lining cannot rescue this video for me. I demand a memory wipe for the last five minutes of my life. Bail Organa, hook me up?

This Attack On Titan Dance Routine Is… Is… Just Watch It [VIDEO]

Apologies if you’ve already seen this guys’ weirdimpressive Attack on Titan-themed dance moves, as this video was uploaded back in May. But I just saw it, and I’m sure there are other new Attack On Titans fans who have yet to be exposed to it, too.

I feel at this moment like I understand nothing about the universe.

Superheroes Can Dance If They Want To, They Can Leave Their Sidekicks Behind

Being a superhero is a stressful job. Sometimes when you’re defending Gotham/Metropolis/New York/CIRCLE CITY NAME HERE you just need to take a few minutes to unwind. (Looking at you, Bats.) By, say, cutting a rug. Artist Jesse Lonergan has illustrated what that might look like with his wonderful series of dancing superheroes. We’ve put some of our favorites behind the cut, including some boogying heroes of the genderswapped variety, but if you go to Lonergan’s Tumblr you’ll find a lot more characters getting their groove on—including examples from Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Adventure Time, Doctor Who, and more.

Oh, and I’ve also included a non-dancing drawing of the Hulk playing a flute. Because reasons.

Andrew Garfield’s Dance Skills & Pop-Culture Knowledge Are Tested On Ellen [VIDEO]

If you’re booked on Ellen it’s a known fact you will probably be asked to dance at some point during the show. The context may not always be the same but it’s always something to watch. In this particular instance Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield was asked to perform several different types of dances on the spot. For each one he got correct, $1000 would go to charity. The thing is, most of the dances required some significant pop-culture awareness, something I’m sure not a lot of actors actually have considering they’re too busy being a part of that very culture. Regardless, Garfield pretty much nailed them all. Give it a look.

A Word to Describe This Unusual Swing Dance Video: Amazing

I knew Spider-Man could swing from a web, but I didn’t know this sort of thing was covered in his spider-powers. Orion Hall and Colleen Vernon‘s swing routine is set to Michael Buble‘s Spider-Man. The only bad thing about this video is that the audio plays primarily out of the left speaker. But we forgive it.
