Jerkin' Dance Craze to be a Movie! 


So the producers of "Next Day Air" are developing a movie around jerkin,' the hip-hop dance craze.

Oh gosh, it's another one of those "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo" movies.

Producers will team up with Todd Moscowitz who runs Asylum Records which has released a bunch of jerkin'-themed records like the New Boyz's "You're a Jerk."

Jerkin' is a performance-art dance craze, much like breakdancing, but this one is supposed to have an underlying political ideology -- it provides a positive, anti-gang message. Dancers wear brightly colored, non-baggy jeans and shirts.

The dance craze originated in Southern California. As for the film? No word yet though on the script or the director or the plot. But I suspect it'll be about an inner city kid who has great skills in jerkin' and he uses his dancing prowess to get out of the ghetto.

Hhhhhmmmm, haven't we heard that plot before?

For now, y'all can learn how to jerk!
