When Carlton Banks from “The Fresh Prince of Bel – Air” found himself home alone, he turned on Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual” and literally danced like no one was watching. Viewers responded so positively to Carlton's shamelessness that they began wearing cable knit sweaters to places that were not golf courses.
Phish is known for breaking various world records, and for not always succeeding. In July of 1999, the group tried to break the record for most people dancing simultaneously during a concert in Oswego, NY. They did The Meatstick while playing the Phish song, "Meatstick." Sadly the record was not broken (even though 60,000 people participated), and meatballs were not handed out as consolation prizes.
The Dougie goes all the way back to the '80s, where it was pioneered by Doug E. Fresh. In 2007, the moves were revived by Lil’ Wil’s hit, “My Dougie,” and then again with the 2010 release of Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How To Dougie.” Powerhouses like Wolf Blitzer, Kate Upton and First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, are all fans.
"The Creep" was started by comedy troupe The Lonely Island. The music video premiered on the January 29th, 2011 episode of Saturday Night Live, and the dance explains how to properly make an unwelcome advance on someone: you dangle your arms around like a puppet, raise your knees up high, move towards your target, and grin with sexual appetite.
