I can’t tell if he’s the best dancer I’ve ever seen or the worst. They’re pretty much the same things when you get right down to it. A total lack of control over your appendages can be misconstrued as great dancing. I will admit that dancing requires some skill, but don’t let it get to your head. I can’t dance so I have no idea if this is good, bad, or a mixture of the two. It’s weird enough to merit me talking about it, so it must have some good qualities. If we have any dancers in the house feel free to correct me on this.
Busting a move is an obtuse art form. It has many schools of thought, and many stoic practitioners who make everyone around them miserable by doing a bunch of obtuse nonsense instead of being entertaining. I find the aforementioned video to be very entertaining because he doesn’t seem to be taking himself too seriously. On the other hand, if that display is him taking himself seriously then I really don’t know what to say. Taking serious artistic license with the absurd is like remaking Casablanca with cats. People aren’t exactly gonna watch it for the riveting plot, now are they?
In the end, it doesn’t really matter how you feel about dance. What truly matters is we all agree that Napoleon Dynamite has the best dance sequence of any movie that has ever been made, or ever will be made.
