Move over, Maddie Ziegler, there's a new bewigged "Chandelier" dancer in town, and he rocks a flesh-colored leotard just as well. Wait, he? Yep, you read that right! It seems YouTube user Chuck Jose recently lost a fantasy football bet, and as punishment, he had to (had to? pssh—was lucky enough to) create a shot-by-shot remake of Sia's infamous "Chandelier" video. Dude has got some balls to put this online. (I mean, other than the balls we can practically see in the video. The skin-tight outfit leaves very little to the imagination.) Though I suppose it could be worse; He could have been forced to walk around town naked, à la The League 's "Usual Bet."
While the concept of a man donning a silly costume and recreating a music video is not exactly new ('sup, Taran Killam and Joe Jonas), I have to admit that this is probably the most authentic version I have seen. Jose seriously commits to capturing the spirit of the original video, from attempting the splits (ouch), to suspending himself in a doorway (impressive), to aggressively feeding the wall (wtf).
But don't take my word for it—check the full video out below:
