'So You Think You Can Prance': TV Dance Judges Prancercise For Charity
What's funnier than the original Prancercise video? Two male judges from So You Think You Can Dance attempting the goofy exercise, dressed exactly like the dotty founder, complete with necklace, pink sweater and white stretch pants.
On last night's SYTYCD, comedian Beth Behrs and judges Adam Shankman and Nigel Lythgoe pranced in the Funny or Die video, Shankman quite happily and Lythgoe extremely reluctantly. "Charity!" Shankman reminds Lythgoe in the video: It's a way to advertise National Dance Day, which is on July 27.
And of course, here is the original Prancercise video. Joanna Rohrback's oh-so-ladylike exercise video has racked up more than six million views on YouTube.
