My fascination with this ridiculous song continues...

Thanks to an AMAZING find by JZ, I give you this. (As an aside, I think it sucks when people disable the "embed" feature. Booooooo!) Say what you will, but DAMN, boyfriend is killin' it! Hilarious.

Then, there's this one:

No, your eyes don't deceive you...that IS indeed Justin Timberlake on the right in a black leotard and heels. Double hilarious.

And I know I'm totally behind on this one and dozens of people have already pointed this out (as always), but it bears repeating that Beyonce's video is a 1000% RIP of Bob Fosse's old school choreography. Obviously, this is not the original music used for the piece, but it gives you a pretty good idea of where Miss Sasha Fierce got her moves from (even if they have been sexified a bit):

See what I mean? Pretty damn similar. Even though I wasn't even a glimmer in my parents' eyes when this piece first came out, EVERY dancer has seen it at one point or another. It's hard to believe that Beyonce's work is completely original after seeing this.

But, what am I getting all bent out of shape about...who cares?! The song and video are fun. And if JZ ever makes it back to the Bay Area, she and I just might have to have a little dance-off. I'm working on my moves. Are you? Whoo!!

What I need now are a blue screen with the girls behind me. Let's see, when will I be back to the bay Area? Maybe April, not sure.
Be ready girl, you have some time.
