Saturday Vine: Munenori Kawasaki Doing the Lightning Dance

Munenori Kawasaki may not even be on the Toronto Blue Jays’ 25-man roster right now, but the man is still making waves this April with this dance moves.

As fate would have it, I somehow came across this Vine from user nekospo of Kawasaki doing the dance he coined as the “lightning dance”. One can only assume this is some sort of in-game promotional video for the Blue Jays, but this short clip really says it all.


If you’re wondering what the song is, it’s Munenori Kawasaki’s famous walk-up song, “El Teke Teke” by Crazy Design. If you’re looking for the backstory on the lightning dance, check out the video below via the Toronto Star.
