Typically the theme of this feature is a piece of music, and while Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” is the background, the foreground is an incredible dance number by Christopher Walken. He was 58 when he made this video
Walken had a notable music video performance in 2001 with Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice. Directed by Spike Jonze, it won six MTV awards in 2001 and—in a list of the top 100 videos of all time compiled from a survey of musicians, directors, and music industry figures conducted by UK music TV channel VH1—won Best Video of All Time in April 2002. In this video, Walken dances and flies around the lobby of the Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles; Walken also helped choreograph the dance. Also in 2001, Walken played a gangster who was in the witness protection program in the David Spade comedy Joe Dirt and an eccentric film director in America’s Sweethearts.
The chances are excellent that you have seen this before. It’s been around for awhile. If you have, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the slap from the past. If you have never seen this before, you are in for a treat.
I give you Christopher Walkin’, er Walken, dancin’.
