UK-based online retailer, RIVER ISLAND, invites you to VOGUE OFF. Or Moonwalk, MC Hammer, Crunk, Robot, and any other dance style you can imagine. And yes, I’ve tried all of them out, with the MC Hammer being my jam! After LIKING River Island’s Facebook page, the entertaining VOGUE OFF app lets you upload a photo of yourself — and even one of your Facebook friends — to get down in a silly short vid that you can then share. When it comes to different apps, I usually can’t find one that‘s worth the time-suck, but I love the interactivity of this one… not to mention it’s seriously hilarious.

SO hilarious that after playing around with all the dance styles using my own face, I couldn’t resist uploading a photo of Ryan Gosling (my numero uno). Click on each photo below to see his moves in action and make sure to turn your volume up for the commentary!

Filed this under my 2012 style resolutions.

So sorry for the spotty posting as of late. With being home and falling prey to a terrible cold caused by being home (blame it on the weather!), I’m trying to catch up. Hope your 2012 has kicked off beautifully!
