10 Dance Crazes That Never Really Caught On

You've seen the best, now feast your eyes on the rest. Don't try these at home.

Posted on

1. "Countertopping"

Despite the issues with varying vertical leap and countertop height, it just wasn't a very good idea to begin with.

2. The "Backflip-Flop"


Why can't one ever be enough? Showoff....

3. "Musical Floors"


When the music stops, you drop.

4. "Paralyzed Worming"

There's a great buildup but the fact that the worm doesn't wiggle just makes it fall flat.

5. "The Karate Kid"

Those flips weren't fast as lightning, unfortunately.

6. "Reverse Trust Falling"


How can you have a partner dance when one partner now has trust issues?

7. "Butter Balancing"


Wasteful, expensive, and painful. No thanks.

8. "Spidermaning"


"Spiderman, Spiderman,

Does whatever a spider can

Spins a web, any size,

Catches thieves just like flies

Look Out!

Here comes the Spiderman."



9. The "You Don't Know Squat!"


It's starts off like the "Drop It Like It's Hot" but ends up with dropping your stuff all over the place.

10. The "Atomic Faceplant"


A simple faceplant wasn't enough for this daredevil. Sadly for him, watching him do it is enough for the rest of us.

Another dance craze that hasn't caught on (but we still have our fingers crossed) is "The Black hole."
