Vaccination against bad taste

... and against quite a lot of bad dancing, for women at least.

José Garofalo in the heels, Carlos Stasi leading. Hat tip to TangoCommuter, who adds a bit of context at the link.



In case you feel that your permanent immunity requires a booster shot, José Garofalo does another version here.

I think the parody is stronger in the one with Carlos Stasi, because it's closer to common experience with a man leading, and truth is always funnier. But the second one, with Veronica Alvarenga, is better lit.

(I don't know where he got the shoes.)

rofl - I particularly like the parts where the follower gets so carried away it's all the leader can do just to manage to stay upright!

There is a certain dark haired beauty that can be seen dancing in this fashion on occasion. I think it is hilarious and saw this on Tangocommuter's site. This type of parody could be funnier if it weren't based on truth. Just have a look at the dance floor!

LOL Very entertaining.
At least, in both videos, Jose demonstrates good technical command of his embellishments, and they are done with regard to music :)

I hadn't seen this version Ms. H. They're both hilarious. And yes, at least Jose is musical...

My impression is that Jose is also one of the best younger-generation dancers around. He's certainly a very musical leader, and his musicality makes the parody even more wicked.
