Humpty Dumpty rap inspires interpretive dance, hilarity ensues

When weird nursery rhyme raps and unbelievably awkward dancing come together, magic happens. And today, we have something magical for you.

It's an odd rap song about everyone's second favorite eggman (John Lennon being everyone's favorite eggman, naturally). In and of itself, the song is fairly unremarkable as far as cheesy kids rap tunes go.

But it moved one man so much he had to choreograph and record a dance to it. And once you see this gentleman's awkward, lumbering style and unflagging enthusiasm for both the mediocre music and the power of dance, you will never be the same. Experience it all after the jump.
