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.Tags: Bieksa, dirty dancing, I Find this Photo Odd
