Fly To Paradise

From Italian Saturday evening television program Al Paradise circa 1984 comes Sara Carlson singing and dancing to “Fly To Paradise”, a choreography enthusiast’s wet dream. I cannot be entirely sure just what is going on with this leotard-clad nymph and her frolicking menagerie of break-dancing contortionists but nevertheless I am mesmerized by their sequined glory — a glory only outshone by Carlson’s fantastic chicken dance.

Thanks, Klaus!

Update: Mer points out in the comments that she totally posted this months ago and is way cooler than me.

    Since there are only so many times in a year I can scream “DAMN YOU ROOOSS!” into the darkness, I’ll just say that this the most regal-yet-terrifying interpretation of the bedazzled funky chicken I have ever seen.

    I’d also like to point everyone to Mer’s Sara Carlton Experience post from the beginning of this year. You’ll never be the same.

    I’ve made a whole weekly podcast on the foundation of screaming “DAMN YOU ROSSSSSS”

    The chicken dance sequence was brief, but truly *mesmerizing.*

    When Lady Gaga finally has a nervous breakdown from working nonstop for the last two years, THIS is the video she’ll make.

    Why you do this? Why???

    Okay okay, I’m just jealous because my ribcage and hips can’t do those things…yet.
