Funny Video: Half-Naked Ballet Dancer Prances Across Los Angeles

A half-naked ballet dancer dances across some notable Los Angeles spots in this funny video from the comedy group Nightpantz.

Soundtracked to Hozier's "Take Me To Church" and featuring someone who claims to be the "distant cousin of ballet dancer Sergei Polunin" (we'll have to double-check that), the dancer gets no love from the security at a few churches, including the Church of Scientology. He moves on to Santa Monica, and after getting kicked out of the Apple store on the Third Street Promenade, he finds a home among the visitors (and dogs) on the Pier.

The video is a spoof of a video of the actual Sergei Polunin performing to the same song, and the supposed distant cousin of Polunin is Tim Lacatena, whose skills have landed him roles in (500) Days Of Summer and Black Swan.
