The YES Dance [YT mix, NSFW]

And the full-length original [even more NSFW], as performed by Robert James Hoffman III (aka, among other things, star and creator of Urban Ninja and Urban Ninja II).

I decided to come here and read the comments in order to decide if it is worth watching. So far, the answer is no. But please, convince me otherwise! :)

See the Great Big Mulp's comment upthread. It's followed by the "STOP! I lost my contacts!"

I give this a hearty hell YES! You might end up like Kiki and YES yourself to death. CALL THE FIREMAN! STOP!! You have to believe in the YES. The YES will cure everything! I need you all to YES with me!

So all my bitches have to do the YES with me. That includes you, newfers. We need to revive Kiki for the finale.

YES! YES YES YES! YESYESYESYES!

[This is awesome.]

Metafilter: Let's do the fork in the garbage disposal

I got to the fork in the garbage disposal and just about died laughing. YES!

Nothing like a good dose of silliness, yes?

I kept waiting for the punchline.
Then a gentleman took e and got naked.

And then I thought perhaps people who laugh at this haven't actually been surrounded by this at 3am in a warehouse/1 am in a danceclub before. Or maybe they have too much.

Sometimes parody is tamer than reality.
So, really, where's the punchline?

The thing that makes this absolutely fantastic is that, unlike being uncomfortably stranded at some annoying-as-fuck club with a bunch of coworkers and a pounding headache for some minimally socially acceptable period of time, I can simply turn this off and it's over. Instantly.

Ahhhhh.

I was actually worried about the garbage disposal.

I do a much more precise Robotic version. It's called "The Affirmative Dance."

tkchrist, yes...I mean affirmative

You know, I don't think those two nice young men are aware that a fork in a garbage disposal can actually be very dangerous! Why, it could fly out of there and put your eye out! Therefore, I don't think this is an appropriate video for our impressionable youth.

Otherwise, though, I thought it was just fine and I enjoyed it very much.

Was surprised to read the bio and find that Robert Hoffman has quite an extensive resume. That made me watch YES a third time. ahem.
