Kevin Bacon Reprises “Footloose” Protest on Tonight Show

On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon announced NBC’s new rule banning all dancing. Coincidentally, that night’s guest was Kevin Bacon, who pulled out his moves from his Footloose days to stand up against the network’s dancing ban.

Is he able to change peoples’ minds about the ban on dancing? You will have to check out the video to find out.

It is hard to believe that it has been three decades since Footloose opened in theaters in 1984. But the 55-year-old Keven Bacon shows he still has the moves (with a little help from a double). And he is a great sport here too.

    1. F*cker don’t age! I can’t believe how familiar the dances were, even though I haven’t seen it since the theaters in 1984 (I went with my sister; maybe the closest I’ve ever been to her before or since). That is so funny about the double, because he looks almost as different here as he did in the movie!

      1. I wonder if the double here was meant to be obvious as a way of poking fun at the movie’s use of a double too? Yeah, it is hard to believe he can still do what he does though. Thanks for the comment.
