I'm so glad she found her calling as a belly dancer. I ran into her when she was working at a newspaper stand outside Grand Central Station, and it was the most frustrating transaction I have ever endured.

The British accent & formal wear add just the right touch of class to the proceedings.

I hope that she uses her powers to fight laser-saur, which would explain the outfit.

If you need me, I'll be on my coin-operated vibrating massage bed.

Woah, that's skill. I would not want to challenge her to a sit-up competition, definitely.

This had me on the edge of my seat like it was high-wire acrobatics. I can't fathom why I found this so engrossing, but I wouldn't deny it, either.

I'm trying to think of a way to work this video into a presentation I'm doing on the Euro crisis.

There's some kind of canned meme response for this....e...something.

Of course, this was the last time David Frost allowed someone to get away with lying during an interview with him.

That's just an average Saturday night at Charlie Sheen's house.

Just kidding, that's the timeless sex scene from Hot Shots.

I remember seeing this trick on That's Incredible back in the 70s.

Great! beautiful woman laying on floor, middle aged man standing over her and they put the subtitles where?

Gorgeous! I'm working on an epic poem in honour of this woman's magnificent ventral dexterity. Does anyone have a rhyme for "roll buck yourself"?

The music, her outfit, his outfit, the very british detachment and the jokes about inflation...one can't write that stuff!

Like Papa Bell, I saw this on TV in the 70's. Most of the belly dancers I knew had nothing resembling that control.

Amazing, yes, and it led me to several other bellydance videos, and a comment that "You don't see any male belly dancers," which led to "Google it," and behold also pretty amazing or perhaps astonishing is a better word.
