Video of Elvis Proves That He Was the Originator of the ‘Stanky Leg’ [VIDEO]
It seems like every year there is a new dance video phenomenon. A few years back it was PSY with 'Gangnam Style' and Ylvis had 'What Does the Fox Say' before that and last year it was Meghan Trainor with 'All About That Bass'. This year the dance craze video title goes to Silento with the hit 'Watch Me(Whip Nae Nae)'.
The video for 'Watch Me' has been seen over 600 million times and has turned the world on to a dance move called 'The Stanky Leg'. There are many who feel the Stanky Leg is a new move but I remember Fred Sanford from Sanford and Son doing it in the 70's and I sure as heck remember Elvis breaking it out in the 50's. When it comes to the Stanky Leg, we need to give credit where credit is due and bow to the king on this one. Elvis was doing the Stanky Leg before there was even a name for it. Check out this video from 1956 and you will see that Elvis created this move at least 60 years ago.
