We all remember Dolph Lundgren, right? Played the Russian dude who told Rocky "I must break you" in Rocky IV? Played He-Man in the god-awful Masters of the Universe live-action film? That guy? Yeah, turns out he's actually Swedish. Oh, and also? He is a complete badass.

Not sold? See today's video if you doubt it. In it, our Swedish meathead friend rocks a pretty mean version of Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" while a bunch of Swedish hotties dance behind him. In the middle of it, he takes a drum solo, breaks a bunch of boards with some sweet martial arts moves, then follows up by busting through a several huge slabs of ice just like that part in Karate Kid 2, but way bigger. We mean the ice is way bigger, although Lundgren is also much bigger than Ralph Macchio; Macchio could have stunt-doubled for Liza Minnelli. Oh, and Dolph does it all in a tuxedo, so badass and smooth.

Guys, take a tip from Dolph -- if your Valentine's date needs a "little less talk, a little more action" try a drum solo, and/or breaking some boards and ice. We bet it will get your ladies legs all aquiver in no time. The video awaits you after the jump.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
