If you think great dancing started with Michael Jackson, and nothing can compare to Maddy in Chandelier... this one's for you.

Mattthew Angus, bandmember of the Toronto-based Fast Romantics, created a lyric video for the band's song Julia, adding lyrics to movie footage of the great Fred Astaire. Now Angus has gone a stage further: he's incorporated the band itself into one of Astaire's most celebrated dance sequences - his ceiling dance from the movie Royal Wedding

He's done a great job. Integrating the band with Astaire really works, and it also arguably serves a higher purpose - reminding us, of this godlike, timeless genius of dance. Eat your heart out Maddy.
