The Best video of a a guy karate dancing to Backstreet Boys from 1999 you'll see today.

by Jon Henseler

First of all, if you don't think I'm busting out some karate dancing the next time I'm at a wedding you are looney tunes. These are some of those dance moves you see in movies where everyone stops what they're doing and form a circle around you until you're done spreading your awesome all over the dance floor. The only problem is I don't think I can do this bro justice. This guy is part Napoleon Dynamite, part Cobra Kai and part Liu Kang from Mortal Kombat. I feel like I'd just look like Elaine out there without the proper practice. 

The only sad thing for this guy is that this video was actually that, a video. As in a video tape. While everyone else was stocking up on water and spam for the Y2K* disaster this guy was busy making a viral video before viral video was even a term. It feels like that scene in Back To The Future where Marty busts out Johnny B Goode and says 'guess you guys aren't ready for that yet, but your kids are gonna love it.' Bingo. Had this come out three years ago in the Youtube era this guy would be a first ballot internet HOFer. We can only hope he gets voted in by the Veteran's Committee now.

*My family was so half assed when it came to Y2K. I can't remember how many people were actually in full blown panic mode but I do remember people stocking up on bottled water like nobody's business. But I remember my parents buying like one 12 pack of Ice Mountain (or Moland Springs, can't remember) and putting it on the top shelf of our pantry 'just in case.' Thanks guys! Good to know that if the whole world implodes on itself like a dying star we'll each have 3 bottles of water to start a new civilization with.
