This was one of the 55 entries in the 2001 Dance Your Ph.D. Contest, most of which can be seen here.

Ugh, if only they had chosen a song that wasn't so hackneyed. Pretty odd contest.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Well, I can't speak for the song, but I actually quite enjoyed watching this, enough to take a look at some of the other finalists' efforts too. Clearly a lot of thought and creativity has been put into making these. There are some pretty inventive interpretations and some surprisingly good choreography and dancing, with good video technique too. It's a strange concept for sure, but thanks for giving it some exposure owlice, I liked.
