You can’t make this stuff up

So I’m checking out Cavin’s Blog and he’s talking about being in Hollywood for “Dances With Helio” tonight. I don’t think Cavin will be covering the IndyCar testing in Milwaukee, Iowa or Birmingham, but come hell or high water he’ll be checking out Spiderman’s dancing moves. In person.

Which brings us to the fact that Curt posts just one reader question today.

Question: Hey, mate. Just a note to say Hi and tell you that Helio wasn't the first Indy-car driver to do "Dancing with the Stars." I did the Chilean version and lasted until the fourth show. Damn tango got me out. Check Eliseo Salazar El Baile on You Tube but don't laugh too hard. BTW: I read the blog every day. (Eliseo, Santiago, Chile)
So of course, I checked it out. And what do you think was one of the songs Eliseo Salazar danced to in this Chilean version? Forgive me for posting another dancing clip, but this is un-freaking-believable!!!

Seriously, watch the first 20 seconds and you'll be spitting beverage on your computer screen. I promise.

    Holy really can't make that up! I appreciate the warning, but it was insufficient; my screen did suffer a beer bath. I would recommend upgrading the warning to a "danger" label. BTW, if you "manned up" and watched football tonight, (or don't want to admit to watching DWTS again, and who could blame you for that), you can tell your readers that a female fan (of yours, not Helios) said that he kicked it again tonight (Helio not you)...

    I agree with Nancy - warning must be upgraded! Can you do a flashing red "danger"? Loved it!
