When One Dude Can’t Finish The Job

And is more interested in feeling up his employer, rather than zipping her up, let a second back up dancer have a go. I hope the first guy was fired after his epic fail.

His angry twitching and jerking is probably the most threatening stage act of any singer ever. That bobbing forehead gets awfully close to the cameraman. Its nearly a Liverpool kiss.
