Has the dehumanizing grind of working day in and day out at a job you don’t care about for a paycheck you know you’re just going to convert to double cheeseburgers got you down? Does the prospect of the future fill you with preemptive regret and the strange need to use the toilet? Well, just in time for summer blockbuster season, the American film industry has got your back. You see, NGUZUNGUZU (pronounced: en-gorz-oop-en-gorz-oop) are heading out on the road this June to get some “sick b-roll” for their recently announced coming-of-age dance movie, in which they will try to teach sad young professionals just like you the value of letting loose every once in a while. The plot reportedly revolves around a legless accountant’s chance encounter with a sexy wizard. The sexy wizard, played by Channing Tatum in drag, not only grows the legless accountant a whole new set of legs in her mystical Mason jars, but she also teaches him how to dance the mambo, and eventually becomes his wife!
Hippos in Tanks (pronounced: hurrpoz-en-trornks) are bankrolling the film project, which has been described as the “most aesthetically adventurous coming-of-age dance film since 2006’s Step Up.” The short tour will hit most of the major North American dance hotspots, including Twain, California and Vancouver (pronounced: vun-crubbard). Lace up your dancing shoes, downcast American workforce, Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda are coming to your town to inject a little Tatummy skip into your step!
