I stole this idea–no! I mean, I was inspired by John, a.k.a. The Food & Wine Hedonist. He just did a run down of some of the best line dances of our time and I realized that one was missing.
This isn’t a line dance, per se, but it always becomes one of sorts–with ass shaking for an 8 count in one direction then a 90 degree jump, more ass shaking in another direction, and then another jump and so and and so forth; around and around, again and again, North, South, it’s like an ass-compass.

Did you see? Did you see? Donnie Whalberg is wearing a Malcolm X denim jacket.
Read that sentence again: A New Kid is wearing an airbrushed Malcolm X denim jacket. Donnie’s Public Enemy phase was so misguided.
