    Choreographic WTF Moments

    The discussion in the latest Ladies Survivor thread:
    http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...0&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:

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

    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 :

    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!

    Or do I miss the reference?

    ETA: There are few choreographic touches I dislike more than the arm movements in Slutskaya's Carmen layback.

    Right at the beginning here, 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 --

    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 .

    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!

    This moment I think is funny. I could not believe it was Daisuke doing this:

    The first time I saw a skater grab her foot during a death spiral (I think it was Shen). She was stretched out in a beautiful position and suddenly she grabbed her foot as if she had an itch or something. I guess she got more points for doing it, but I never understood why. It wasn't aesthetically pleasing and it didn't require any special flexibility. That was during the period when skaters were grabbing their blade every chance they got. Thankfully that has abated somewhat.

    Off-topic but that is the competition where Daisuke only managed SEVEN points more in his free skate that his short (71-point LP should say enough) and fell all the way from 3rd to last. I don't know if anyone has come as close as that point spread between a short and long program.

    I can't remember which year this was, but I loved when Chenjiang Li made the devil horns on his forehead with his fingers. Was this in the Star Wars LP?

    lol I love this thread!

    Here goes my pick.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONViu...ailpage#t=122s

    When I first watched this performance, I literally said 'what the....' at that moment.
    No matter who does it, this position looks so ugly I think.
