Watch The Legacy Music Dance Party (Video)
So this is probably the strangest thing I’ve seen all week. From Funny or Die directors Matt and Oz and writer Brent Weinbach, it’s a ‘Dick Clark’s American Bandstand’ style dance party show featuring music from 8-bit Japanese Nintendo games, played absolutely 100% deadpan. Right down to the creepy banter between the hosts and a single lady.
My mom used to watch shows like this religiously, even when I was a very little kid and I still don’t know what her generation saw in shows like this. But I can tell you after watching this, I definitely still don’t know. This nails the awesome creepiness of dance party shows precisely. The only thing missing is Don Cornelius.
