Baby boy dance party

I loved the musical sketch “Boy Dance Party” when it aired on Saturday Night Live way back in October.  Bruce Willis and all the guys dancing around the living room while the girls were away?

(I like the kid way better than them.)

“Intensify the normal” is how Cadden describes his process.

“After” is just one example of his success.
