No one puts Baby in the corner. And no one puts out a Dirty Dancing
remake without spawning a Web spoof of the original.
In a five-and-a-half-minute MSN Cinemash short that sends up the classic boy-meets-girl-meets-Catskills-dancer tale, Channing Tatum
(of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
and Charlyne Yi of Knocked Up
) assume the roles that Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey made famous in 1987 – complete with hilarious '80s hair, sweaty male toplessness, and campy dialogue.
"I'm scared of being put in the corner, Johnny, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you," Yi whines passionately. "Dance with me."
And while they might not be quite as graceful as Swayze and Grey were at Kellerman's resort, they're definitely a lot funnier. – Michael Y. Park
