Music Monday Move Me: Corky St. Claire

I don't normally participate in memes, but XmasDolly talked me into this one.  I am supposed to share a favorite dance.  I'll go with Corky St. Claire's dance scene in my favorite movie of all time, Waiting For Guffman. 

Allow me to set up the clip:  Corky has been hired to choreograph some dance moves for a local community play.  In this scene, he is working it out and breaking it down in his living room.

If you have not seen this movie, there is not 30 seconds that go by that I am not laughing hysterically.

Wow! Those are some moves! I, too, have not seen the movie. I think I might need to.

Oops, I first thought this was you disguised as Corky. I thought it was your latest stunt. No? It could be. Then again, you won't be at 500 until next week or so.

Still can't believe that's Jamie Lee Curtis's husband!

mintifresh said...

He totally stole my moves and made them famous!

tammy said...

I can see where Luvpilot learned his moves.

And now I must watch this movie.

The Church Lady said...

Pat Tillett said...

I forgot all about this. How could I have forgotten?

Turns out not only do we have the same musical tastes, we must have the same movie tastes. Anything and everything by Christopher Guest is perfectly brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

Perhaps we are separated at birth sister and brother. On second thought, forget that, I am pretty much hairless and that's without the waxing.

MBGITWWR said...

Never saw the movie and now I'm almost frightened to consider it. But I must say that I indeed did chuckle. Nice!

T said...

Oi! how did I miss this movie? good thing I've got NetFlix now :)

Kelley said...

Ha!! I have never even HEARD of this movie. Isn't that pitiful? Going to my Netflix account now... Okay, not right now. Want to talk about leaps. I definitely enjoyed the leaps. I love leaping of all sorts- Corky St. Claire leaps, split leaps, leap years, Leap Frog, etc. Actually, don't like leap year. Don't get it. Leaving now. I need to go choreograph a dance for a local community college. Ironic, huh?

Baby Sister said...

Very entertaining.

The Bipolar Diva said...

Great movie and perfect dance!

Xmas Dolly said...

Nope, haven't seen this movie, but that was hysterical. You are so right. I am so going to have to see this movie. Thanks for playing along. You are so an asset to our meme! Hope you'll play along next week. It's your choice next week. Whatever you want to put up to groove by! Ooops! Rock by? Well,whatever they're saying nowadays! That guy looks like my husband trying to dance ROFL HE CAN'T DANCE EITHER! LMAO THANKS AGAIN!

Allyson & Jere said...

So, I just read through your comments. There are a disturbing number of ladies here who have never even :GASP: heard of this movie. This makes my heart hurt. There should be a punishment for such ignorance. I'm just sayin!

Jenn said...

HHAAAAHHAAAAHAAAAA!!! OMG That is too funny.. he looks like he might be possessed or something!!! lol

Pearl said...

When your title popped up on my blog role, I smiled immediately. Corky St. Clair!!

In keeping with the PG-13 rating, all I can say is "You're B*st*rd people! That's what you are! You're all b*st*rd people!"

:-) GREAT movie.

somehow I knew you would choose a good one!

FluffyChicky said...

I love Corky St. Claire! I haven't watched that movie in for-ev-er because The Husband thinks it is stupid. I'm gonna have to defy him and watch it anyway. :)

Sadako said...

Waiting for Guffman! I LOVE this!

mama-face said...

WOW. I needed this today. THANK YOU!

Dolly said...

Crazy dancer!!! Thanks for the entertainment and link to another "Dolly" on the internet:)

Mary said...

after all...what is dancing without regular pelvic thrusts?

FabuLeslie said...

Oh, Waiting for Guffman! I haven't seen that in YEARS! Gotta put it in the netflix queue. Sooooo funny!

Marnie said...

I've never heard or seen that movie before! That was funny.

Lourie said...

I must live in a cave. I have never heard of this. Funny though.

Esther said...

Abe - can we borrow Waiting for Guffman? Josh has never seen it.

Lori said...

I would run to Blockbuster and rent this tonight, but I'm sure it's all out since it was "featured" on the Blog O' Cheese! Darn!

Chris said...

I have the series (Guffman, Best In Show, Mighty Wind) on DVD. Corky St. Clair is one of my favorite characters in any of them. When he loses it, his anger is hilarious! You....you bastard people! I hate your ass.....face.

Marla said...

My head hurts from laughing! This is up there with Napoleon Dynamites dance moves. Love it!!
