"I am Daily Dancer, a software developer who loves to dance! Three days a week, I post a new video of me dancing to a different song." Here's some of the clips on Google Videos.

I'm having difficulty predicting the outcome of this thread. Hopefully it ends with somebody getting spooned.

If he just focused a little, he'd be a totally sexy dancing machine. Boy's got the killer moves but they're scattered and smothered all over the place. Shame, really.

Maybe he learned how to dance at the Waffle House, eh mediareport?

The thread is shaping up nicely - the dancing, not so much.

Too charming for words. Watching his moves on the 'braaa' part of Ob La Di reminds me why I love watching white guys dance. Work that excercise ball, my sexy internet flail-monkey!

Is he molesting a stuffed... hippo?

This conclusively proves that white people dance to the lyrics of the song instead of the music.

No he wouldn't. Damn fool needs to keep his legs together.

Too much time spent in the handballing sling'll do that to you though.

"Dancing?" I can call my ass a turkey, that don't mean it's Thanksgiving!

Yeah, no way he's ever going to regret this.

Yes, but Thanksgiving is all in the stuffing.

He links to a little interview some blogger did with him, where he mentions that none of his family knows he does this, which is kind of interesting. Can you imagine realizing your brother/son has been doing this for ages and stumbling across the site?

Ah, another candidate for Daily Dancer's Handballing Sling.

mediareport, you forgot covered and chunked.

I'm serious; he's got some fantastic, creative moves in there, but he's so obviously excited and deliberately goofy he doesn't commit to any moves long enough to let you see them working to the beat. I'm telling ya, he's *this* close to pulling it together into something that would really wow.

But then, I've never been one to sneer at anyone's dance style; it's just too much fun to watch people being themselves with...um...elan like that. It always surprises me when scorn enters the picture. Dance haters never did make any sense.

Well if it's three days a wekk, it's not really "daily," then, is it. I doubt this guy's perfecting his routines on the off days. Seriously, though, this is fun to watch, mostly because I am also a white guy who tries too hard to dance.

I don't know, he's kind of cute. I think any local ballet school would love to have him, if only to give him some core skills.

No, but I can image working with him and nearly falling out of my seat after a coworker sent me the link to his site. You know, hypothetically. (I need a new career)

I think it's charming. I love people who aren't at all self-conscious about the fact that they aren't the smoothest dancer to ever grace the floor (and really, how many are?) and just do it because it's fun.

blockhead, that is hysterical. Hypothetically.

Looks to me like he needs dancing lessons from zefrank.

And normally I wouldn't either -- heaven knows, I'm no Merce Cunningham myself. But if you put your performances up on the net, then you're offering them up for criticism.

I'm serious; he's got some fantastic, creative moves in there

I especially liked it when he mimes a pregnancy bump at one point during 'my hump', and then does some other peculiar little gesture in which he seems to be trying to accentuate his arse cheeks.

Personally though, I wouldn't dance with him in public even if I was on a fistful of Ecstasy.

I think he'd make an excellent addition to the Torrance Community Dance Troupe

[sigh] Doesn't anyone remember Friday Night Shakedowns with Adam Zavala? Dancing on the internet is so 2001.
