The 24 Best Moments of the Craziest Skating Routine Ever - in GIF Form


by Anna Marquardt
Did you know that in 2005, Evgeni Plushenko did an insane routine? Well, he did. A routine that involved:
  • A red pleather jacket
  • A gold tank top
  • A giant comb
  • Tear-away stripper pants
  • Gold Rocky Horror-style briefs
  • A FAKE MUSCLE SUIT

  • This dance move happened:



    Then a jacket flap:



    Then whatever this is:



    Then some sensuous booty revolutions:



    Yeah, lose the jacket:



    Fancy footwork:



    Shoulder isolations:



    Some sort of yogic Street Fighter move:



    Gurrrrrrl, those shoulders:



    Get that shirt off!!!:



    Don't worry, the muscles are fake:



    OH YES.



    But THEN:



    Don't forget: he is a SKATER:



    But also a showman.



    He's gotta fix his hair now...



    Because it's time to LOSE THOSE PANTS:



    Oh my:



    More booty maneuvers:



    Crowdwork:



    Strutting:



    Ice drama:



    One more spin to remind us that, yes, dude is a SKATER:



    And finally, full satisfaction:




    As though that wasn't enough, the whole thing was performed to the Tom Jones song "Sex Bomb" - one of my personal faves. But some plucky youngster has gone ahead and set the routine to Ginuwine's classic jam "Pony," resulting in the best video in the world:
