Just ran across this, a hilarious combo of Unk's ubiquitous "Walk It Out" with video footage of dancer Gwen Verdon and crew doing some sassy Bob Fosse-style moves; while the pink bell bottoms are wildly incongruous, the hip-shaking is oddly fitting, and there are multiple points where their moves shift right on cue with the song, in what I guess is a hip-hop equivalent of playing "Dark Side of the Moon" with "The Wizard of Oz."
And lo and behold, it turns out there's a bunch of these! Witness the head-slapping ridiculousness of "Teletubbies Walk It Out:"
Or, while we're at it, "Barney's Walk It Out:"
"Happy Feet Walk It Out:"
It goes on and on. There's Napoleon Dynamite, Naruto, even a computer-animation mega-mashup. Do your own YouTube search for "Walk It Out" and you'll see. Except for Naruto, I guess the theme is "white people (or the cartoon equivalent) look silly dancing to hip-hop," but boy, some of this stuff is laugh-out-loud funny. I just hope nobody has any video of me shimmying around at some point...
