Behind-the-scenes of Coach Mitchell’s Hammer dance

Still impressed with Matthew Mitchell’s MC Hammer dance from Big Blue Madness? Me too. Thankfully, the folks over at Kentucky Wildcats TV put together a behind-the-scenes reel of Mitchell preparing for his big moment on stage. Here are the highlights:

— Mitchell worked with a choreographer and the UK dance team to get ready, but it’s clear he didn’t need too much help. The man can flat out dance.
— The sequence at the :54 mark is particularly delightful
— Gangnam Style at 1:22!
— Those Hammer pants are just epic.

Just dance like no one’s watching, right Coach Cal?

    Is he practicing in winged tips? Interesting.

    Regardless, he’s the man and has been impressive with what he’s done with the women’s team.

    Matthew Mitchell is awesome. I love his dedication to coming out and doing a sweet dance every year, and I’m sure the recruits love it too. Seems like a fun, and still great, coach.
