Christopher Walken’s Dance Video Will Make Your DayBy: Erika Watts - March 20, 2014
Have you ever seen something on the Internet and said, “Wow, that guy has way too much time on his hands…”? That probably happens far too often these days, but now one of those rare occasions has popped up where it’s okay to be grateful for such people. A hilarious video mashup of scenes from Christopher Walken movies that shows the actor with his dancing shoes on was released this week, and it is great.
The Christopher Walken Dance Now video mashup was put together by Ben Craw, a video editor with Huffington Post. The video has been viewed more than one million times since being posted to YouTube on Wednesday.
Check out the Christopher Walken Dance Now video below.
Notice any familiar scenes in that video? You should, because the video mashup includes scenes from 57 different films, including The Deer Hunter, Wedding Crashers, and Batman Returns. The scenes in the video are taken from films made back in the 1970s all the way to 2013.
If you never really took notice of Walken’s dance moves on-screen before, then you probably have him in as a shoe-in on the next season of Dancing With the Stars (if DWTS ever decides to use, well, stars). In case you’re wondering where Walken learned how to dance so well, according to Craw, Walken trained at the Washington Dance Studio before getting into acting.
Judging from the comments left on the YouTube video page and posted to Twitter, a lot of people got a kick out of seeing the Christopher Walken dance video (and one user confirmed that the video is, indeed, worth your time, in case you were waiting for a Twitter user endorsement before watching):
