I Find This Photo Odd: Bieksa and Tootoo do the lift

If you’re a female, chances are you’ve seen Dirty Dancing. Heck, if you’re a male that’s ever been in a relationship you wanted to maintain (or consummate), you’ve probably seen it too. That in mind, it stands to reason that both Kevin Bieksa and Jordin Tootoo have seen Dirty Dancing.

If you need more proof than that, I present the odd little photo below, in which the aforementioned pair awkwardly recreate the film’s iconic lift from the final dance number (watch and swoon, y’all).

But something’s gone wrong. Either Tootoo doesn’t have the upper-body strength, Bieksa doesn’t have the grace, or these two just don’t have the chemistry. The Dirty Dancing lift, after all, is the perfect storm of romance, and Bieksa and Tootoo aren’t exactly Johnny and Baby. Here’s how it looks when it’s done correctly.

s/t to Tubular, who can clearly spot a Dirty Dancing shot recreation from a mile away.

    Is there a story for the Sedin pic that headlines the “I find this photo odd” posts?

    I really find that photo odd.

    I see “Battle of the Blades” in their future.

    I think I know what the problem is… shouldn’t the guy be at the bottom? ;)

    So I’m in my 30s yet admittedly did not watch Dirty Dancing for the first time until 2008 or 2009. That movie needs a label saying: “Warning! When watched outside of era, may be recognized as a terrible, terrible film.”

    You know, the same one that adorns Pretty in Pink.

      Yeah, I only saw Dirty Dancing for the first time a couple years ago myself. It’s all sorts of bad.

      But careful what you say about Pretty in Pink. Molly Ringwald = the best.
