God Bless the 1980s and This Montage of Unsightly Dance Moves

Molly Ringwald, will you go to prom with us?

Ah, the ‘80s, when, at least in the movies, awkward teenagers just danced their troubles away. And awkward adults. Everyone was awkward, it was the ’80s. And everyone was dancing all the time.

Video editor Robert Jones just released volume two of his “Dancing in 80’s Movies Supercut.” Featuring clips from 86 films in under five minutes, you’ll witness the most memorable moves from The Breakfast Club, Police Academy, Breakin’ 2 and Can’t Buy Me Love.

And, of course, Jean Claude Van Damme’s Kickboxer — where JCVD’s splits are so good/bad they’ve inspired their own meme (and an amazing follow-up).

You can find Jones’ first volume here.
