Ellen DeGeneres Dance Dare goes terribly wrong! WATCH

by Emily H


As fans of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ will probably know, the comedian encourages viewers of her uber-popular daytime talk show to submit their very own ‘Dance Dares,’ which are hilarious videos of themselves dancing behind strangers.

Usually, these videos are pretty harmless and just plain funny, but unfortunately for fan of the show Alexander Bok, things went terribly wrong when he tried to do his dare behind a couple of New York City police officers.

As you can see in the full video below, Bok spent Christmas Eve 2014 dancing behind unwitting New Yorkers, but as it turns out, the NYPD clearly aren’t big fans of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ or her love of dancing.


After showing off a couple of his more eccentric moves to Psy’s now infamous track ‘Gangnam Style,’ one police officer aggressively asked Bok “what’s wrong with you?” After he admitted that he was “just dancing,” the officers appeared to swear at him whilst pushing him up against a police van.

Eventually, the officers decided to let him go without charge, but not before appearing to push him to the wet ground just off camera.


The video, which has already received close to 250,000 views, was posted to YouTube over the weekend. Clearly still a fan of the comedian despite his less unfortunate ‘Dance Dare’ experience, Bok wrote “Hey Ellen, here we go! On Christmas Eve I decided to bring joy to New York by doing your challenge!!!! But thing didn’t go quite well, here is the video!!! DREAM BIG LIVE BIG BECOME LEGEND [sic]”

DeGeneres has not yet commented on the video, but according to TMZ, the NYPD are currently investigating the incident.

    The police have put up with a lot of unearned negativity. They are all on high alert due to racist thugs targeting/killing them. Then along comes an idiot jumping and acting like he is “celebrating” something within reach of the polices guns? Seriously!!? I’d say he was trying to antagonize them.
    and received the attention that he wanted.
