The discussion in the latest Ladies Survivor thread:
http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3615480&postcount=71
got me thinking. What are some of your favorite hilarious movements from skater's programs that look silly or inappropriate for the music? This isn't meant to bash skaters, it's all in good fun.

Sarah Hughes has an itch on her chin:

Plushenko has ants in his pants:

I loved Fumie Suguri's 2006/2007 LP, but there was one transition of the music where the choreography had me :lol:

The choreography where she gets on her heels for a second I will never understand. The rest of the program was so beautifully done!

Plushenko is never disappointing when it comes to ridiculous choreography.
And more generally, every Mishin's chroeography has some WTF moments :

Of course! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ieGvGdfyeo#t=20s

An awkward start for Amber...

Sarah Hughes is the only skater I can think of who can go from stunning to WTF in just a few seconds...

She had some weak endings to a lot of her programs...

Agree. I used to chuckle at her "sexy ending" here:

Step back, Cagney-grapefruit myself! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rJX0_QqCTE&t=3m40s)

Or do I miss the reference?

ETA: There are few choreographic touches I dislike more than the arm movements in Slutskaya's Carmen layback (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCBhOcfH_S8&t=4m58s).

Right at the beginning here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfQRQJ6ZBN8), the stretching parts make sense and are at least adequately executed, but the part where she spins around on two feet with her knees and hip joints slightly bent -- :confused:

I love this thread!

Here is one of my favourites: http://youtu.be/coDu5l-gl9Q
This entire program counts as a WTF moment, but the hip action beginning at 2:44 onto the faux-Yagudin footwork is just :rofl:.

I totally love this whole performance by Claudia Leistner, especially when she gets her freak on at 3:10 (I'm too dumb to remember how to time cue youtube links but the whole thing is one big WTF in the best possible way).

Nonsense! :)

This is for everyone who doesn't know how to do it:

1. Go to the YouTube video of your choice.
2. Find the point in the video you want to reference and press pause.
3. Right-click the little video marker and select "Copy video URL at current time."
4. Copy & paste the link and that's it! :D

Easy as pie ;)
