Breakin’ and Poppin’ with Alfonso Ribeiro

In 1985 this commercial came into my young life. The break dancing craze had just about peaked in my neighborhood, but that did not stop me from trying to emulate some of Alfonso’s sweet moves alone in my bedroom every morning.

In fact, when called upon I can still bust out a pretty sweet moonwalk, although I think my scrambler might be lacking if I were to give it a whirl.
