Wait, Is Star Twerking a Thing Now?

Here's the thing about me, I'm not much of a dancer. Earlier this morning I was listening to a mix that included everyone from James to Sage Francis while doing dishes. Without realizing it, I started moving my legs rhythmically while singing along. I tripped over my left foot almost instantly and took a stumble. This resulted in one broken Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom glass and a bruised ego. I will never be cool. I will never have "the moves." And you know what? I am totally at peace with this. I have other skills. For example, I know a lot about The Prisoner and MTV's 120 Minutes. But me on a dance floor? It's not somewhere I want to be, and certainly isn't something you want to see. If the shit hits the fan, I will not be a part of your Dance Dance Revolution.The point I'm trying to make here is that I can't turn the beat around like the choreographed nerds in the new video by ScottDW (who brought us the twerking Stormtroopers video awhile back). Hit the jump to see what I'm talking about.




This plays like a J.J. Abrams-directed sequel to Step Up and I'm completely baffled by it. But if you dig getting your dance on while making Scotty jokes, you are going to absolutely love it.
