If you don’t remember The Wade Robson Project then you obviously aren’t as cool as me. If don’t know who Wade Robson is, then you are DEFINITELY not as cool as me.
On second thought, replace the use of the word “cool” with the word, “loser-ish” or even “troll-ish”.
I may be troll-ish, but any show and/or band with the word “project” tacked at the end of the name is AUTOMATICALLY certified fresh (can you say: THE TONY RICH PROJECT?).
In any matter, five or six years ago (perhaps even before that), Robson (choreographer extraordinaire who worked with a buffet of pop stars before making Emmy-award routines for So You Think You Can Dance) had a self-titled show on MTV — and it was kind of vain. And I say that because he would introduce the show with a solo routine that included self-congratulatory gyrating, poppin’, lockin’ and other moves from his frenetic “choreo” arsenal. Afterwards, with a sort of You Got Served sensibility, individual dancers would “battle” each other with cool dance moves while dressed in dated Urban Outfitters garb on a set that looked like it was from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze.
Like S.Y.T.Y.C.D., dancers would get eliminated one by one and the winner got money and a spot in a J.C. Chasez music video — that was probably KIND OF cool at the time.
I really think they should bring the show back — because we really need another reality dance show where dancers compete and then fade into obscurity. If you need more convincing, check out the awesomeness below:
