True story, folks, while I was watching the DVD extras of Moulin Rouge with a high fever on Friday night (AS ONE DOES), the choreographer was being interviewed and he said one of the most awesome things I've ever heard in my life.

He said that when he was creating the Can Can sequence, he didn't want it to seem 'nice' and 'pretty'. He went for treating the dancers like two rival gangs, who'd rush at each other and have a dance-off.

Yes. This man, this unsung genius, created the Can Can Battle.

There's a parallel world out there where the dancers in the movie took this too much to heart and started *really* trying to settle disputes by can canning each other in the alleys behind the studio. And this spread and spread, so now there are unemployed dancers can can dueling (cee-squaring, they call it) each other all over Los Angeles and New York. And I want to go to there.
