Childhood flashback time!

As dance crazes go, this one is pretty half-assed. Let's discuss.

After you take out all the cajoling ("Do the Mario!"), the dance is performed as follows:

  • Swing your arms from side to side

  • Take one step

  • And then again

  • It's almost a rebuttal to the Throwdown Hoedown. But go ahead, try it, I'll wait.

    See? Not much going on dance-wise. However, the demonstration seems to imply that I'm missing some sort of nuance. See how Mario bobbles at the very end? Whatever I'm doing is not resulting in a loss of balance. I must be doing something wrong.

    No wonder my generation is doomed to a lifetime of obesity.
