Pants Off Dance Off

Have you seen this show? I guess it's been around a while but we just got the Fuse channel and tuned in when we saw their snappy title on the cable guide. Let me tell you, I was shocked and strangely entertained at the same time. If you don't know what it is, random people strip in front of a green screen that plays the corresponding music video behind them. Sometimes the people are pretty good looking but other times you get real freak-Os. The dancing is often bizarre and bad and you end up feeling a bit embarrassed for the people. I think there's some type of contest and judges pick the best dancers, or people text in or something. Winners get cash.

They take off almost everything but since its cable they cut away at the last minute and this strange lady/ host pops on the screen telling you to see the full video online. During the dancing there are weird sound effects and pop-up sound bites of the dancers talking about themselves, what they like to do, what they're in to, favorite things etc. If you feel inclined, here's the web site. Plus there are some videos on You Tube but I couldn't bring myself to link to one.

It's very silly indeed.
