from the German 60s tv series Raumpatrouille Orion (which only lasted from September to December 1966), a prediction of future dancing … which apparently consists of a lot of standing and chicken moves …
It’s … Eddy Marshall and the Chausettes Noires! (Yes, THE Eddy Marshall, etc. etc.) doing “Le Twist” in this vintage video. That Eddy is tres … energetic. To say the least. (He is also very amusant! How drole!)
One of Neil Sedaka’s, erm, lesser songs (and for good reason), from the 1966 film Sting of Death. Girls in tight pants dancing by a pool and lyrics like “Wella, I’m saying fella, forget your Cinderella and do the jella, the jilla-jalla jellyfish!” — what’s not to love?
Thanks (thanks?!?!) to Craig Downey for turning us onto this gem of cheesiness!
Yes, it’s the Butter Dance — performed by Indonesian performance artist Melati Suryodarmot (NOT Paula Deen …). Said “art” consists of dancer dancing in butter, falling in butter, getting up again and so on. It is perhaps the best butter-based dance we’ve seen. (It is also the only one we’ve seen.)
