  • How long has it been since you did the electric slide

    The last several years, I have hardly ever been asked to play the electric slide---when I was asked, I had some trepidation about fulfilling the request---there was something primitive about it and the people who requested it.

    Lately, I have had requests for it---and not from lost souls who think they are at a wedding reception. People under 25 react not with the disdain I grew to expect---the reaction is not really very different from the cupid shuffle. It is no longer a source of derision.

    It seems impossibly difficult to me---I have never understood it. I could never do those steps.

    Still a staple at weddings; which was the last time I saw it played.

    What the hell is the cupid shuffle?

                            be careful.

                            On February 3, 2007, CNET reported that the creator of the Electric Slide had started filing DMCA-based takedown notices to YouTube users who were posting videos of people performing the dance incorrectly.[2]
                            On March 1, 2007, The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed suit against the man who claims to have created the popular line dance The Electric Slide, asking the court to protect the free speech rights of a videographer who captured a few steps of the dance in a documentary video posted to the Internet.[3]
                            On May 22, 2007, the EFF came to an agreement to settle the lawsuit filed on March 1, 2007 against Ric Silver. The agreed settlement states that Mr. Silver will license the Electric Slide under a Creative Commons license [4] and to also post the new license on any of his current or future websites that mention the Electric Slide. EFF agreed to see that all uses of The Electric Slide reference Mr. Silver's name as Choreographer.
                            On April 4th, 2008, NBC's Amne$ia asked Ric to appear on there show to judge one of the Contestants doing The Electric Slide.

                            Inventor of Crappy Electric Slide: Stop Dancing Like Crap



                            Richard Silver, inventor of the totally awesome-except-not Electric Slide, has been filing DMCA requests left and right against YouTube and other outlets to make them pull down videos of people performing the dance—if you can call it that. Not only does he claim a copyright on the moves, *snicker* but he says that
                            Any video that shows my choreography being done incorrectly is being removed. I don't want future generations having to learn it wrong and then relearn it as I am being faced with now because of certain sites and (people) that have been teaching it incorrectly and without my permission. That's the reason I (copyrighted) it in the first place.

                              I would like to know if Moon knew about this video or if he just searched for it.
