Check out this awesome music video by Japanese performer and former martial artist Genki Sudo along with his pop band World Order. For their single “Welcome to TOKYO.” the group performed their signature slow-motion synchronized robotic dancing in the center of bustling street throughout Tokyo.

For an ongoing series entitled Out of the Bowl, Cambria, California-based designer Thad Markham creates awesome sculptures depicting vibrantly-coloured pieces of anthropomorphic fruit that have snuck out of their bowls, bags, and crisper drawers to have a bit of fun. Some of them dance, wrestle or spar with each other, others mediate, and some simply lounge about holding hands.
"It all started with the bananas. One bright sunny morning he was sitting at breakfast and his glance fell on a bunch of bananas on the table. “That’s funny,” he said to himself, “it almost looks like they’re dancing.” Thus began his preoccupation with the secret lives of fruits and vegetables…he began haunting the produce department of the grocery store, his mind captivated with a single burning question… What do the fruits and vegetables do at night when no one is watching?"

Minneapolis-based photographer Ben Garvin created this awesomely silly stop-motion video staring his very own beard.
The Magic Beard is a very light-hearted reminder to “Never let a good beard go to waste.” Beards are amazing things. You can store things in them and let them entertain yourself and others with their whiskery dance moves. But watch out for the shaving cream. It’s got a mind of its own.
Ben shot this delightful video using an iPhone and then edited it using an app called Stop Motion Studio.
The awesome moment occurred while Michael was performing “Billie Jean” during a television special called Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever, which commemorated Motown Records’ twenty-fifth year of existence. This program not only broadcast the debut of the moonwalk, it also reunited Michael with the rest of the The Jackson 5.

The World’s Largest Disco is an annual event held at the Buffalo Convention Center in Buffalo, New York each year the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The event, widely popular in the area, is a tribute to the disco era and features live performances by 1970s-era musicians, along with dancers dressed in 1970s attire.
The current event began as an annual occurrence in 1994, but it traces its history and name to a disco held in Buffalo in 1979, featuring The Trammps and Gloria Gaynor. That disco is marked in Guinness World Records as the largest disco in the history, with 13,000 people in attendance. The current incarnation of the event draws 7,000, though this is only because of capacity issues. Tickets for the event regularly sell out within minutes of being put on sale, which usually occurs in early August. The event is a charity fundraiser held by Conesus Fest for Charity to raise funds for Camp Good Days and Special Times, a summer camp for children with cancer.

This is awesome, it’s Saturday Nut Fever! “A [woefully naked] red squirrel seems to be strutting its stuff on the dance floor. Award-winning wildlife photographer Mark Hancox captured the shot in the Cairngorms in Scotland two weeks ago. Mark, from Dorset, waited for three hours in a specially-built hide for three hours before catching the grooving animal in the act. He said: It was hilarious, it was quite a windy day and it looked like the squirrel was trying to catch nuts as they fell from a tree. As he bobbed up and down on his hind legs he suddenly appeared to dance. He really looked like John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever.”
