Fonzie dance moves on Maury Povich?


There has been a wide array of dances performed by jubilant men and women after Maury Povich reads paternity test results.  It's almost a rite of passage.  Personally, I think the producers offer them money if they do a little jig of some sort.  It's much like Jerry Springer offering cash as an added incentives to engage in fisticuffs.  For such an overwhelming majority of guests to spontaneously respond in gyration celebration - well it's just ain't credible.   One minute, some douchebag is yelling and blathering in defiance.  Seconds later, they're tearing up the backstage like El DeBarge (Dance to the Beat of the Rhythm of the Night)."

Well... I think the time is ripe for some guy to execute "the signature Fonzie retro dance contest move" when he hears those magic words "you are NOT the father."  I think it would bring the house down!  You may recall this stellar moment in Happy Days history.



Alright... some brief analysis.

First off, I think the little blond girl competitor who passes out from exhaustion may have been Charlene Tilton.  You know... Lucy Ewing - the spoiled, rich girl on Dallas.  She played the role of Jock and Ellie's granddaughter.  Her thespian skills were pretty weak.  Hence, they never gave her any substantive parts.  I vaguely remember her fucking the ranch-hand Ray Krebbs (who turned out to be Jock's illegitimate son).  But that's about it. 

I find it odd that Fonzie's crescendo dance move, his "de nu mont" if you will, is performed to the background music of the old Jewish Bar Mitzvah/wedding song Hava Nagila.  What a zany choice.  I don't recall any Ukrainian Jews on Happy Days.  Unless Ralph Malph was some kind of Milwaukee-infused ginger Jew.  Literally translated, Hava Nagila means "Let us Rejoice."   Hey, what better choice of song to exemplify a negative paternity outcome.  "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang could be a close second.

An interesting tidbit about the Fonzie character.  Did you know that the producers originally intended for Anson Williams (Potsie Weber) to play the role of The Fonz?  If you think about it, it makes a ton of sense.  He was far better looking and had great stage presence along with a tremendous singing voice.  Thus, Henry Winkler's gang role was at most, a bit part in the early years.  I just always found that intriguing.  Potsie was supposed to be Fonzie.

And how about Weezer incorporating the old-school Fonzie footage in their "Buddy Holly" video?



I thought this was one of the cooler musical moments in the mid 1990's (a really weak time for rock'n'roll, unless you actually liked Collective Soul, Georgia Satellites, Spin Doctors and all those other shitty bands).

Gig and I saw the outdoor Weezer concert at Stage AE last summer.  Definitely one of the better shows I saw in 2011.  One of the few bands I've always wanted to see that had eluded me.  And check this out - it's a copy of their set list (signed) from that night.




So yeah, that's my idea.  Have some asswipe perform the Fonzie "Hava Nagila/Buddy Holly" on the Maury Povich show.   I'm receptive to other established dance moves (the robot and running man), but I'm pretty passionate about this one.  How can you not be?  Props to Gigi - she was the one who theorized of the concept this afternoon.
