Watch Toronto Raptors' Mickael Pietrus Interrupt TV Broadcast with Bizarre Disco

Mickael Pietrus is looking pretty limber for a guy who hasn't played in a game since early January.

Prior to the Toronto Raptors' bout against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Pietrus deemed it appropriate to videobomb a segment being broadcasted by NBA TV. And aren't we glad he did.

Pietrus pulled out all the stops for the camera, busting move after move, most of which originated at a time when he wasn't even alive and when words like "groovy" were uttered on a regular basis.

Credit the 31-year-old with carrying on at an unrelenting pace too. This was no jive-and-run; his appearance lasted nearly half a minute.

Out of all the cavorting Pietrus did, the closing of his routine was the absolute best. He opted to wrap up with a "if you've got it flaunt it," sorority girl on spring break-type samba.

The sarcastic, bordering on bemused look on Pietrus' face kind of leaves you wondering what motivated him to strut his stuff on television.

Did he lose a dare? Is he perhaps going senile from sitting on the bench so much? Was he merely so excited he decided not to hide it, The Pointer Sisters style?

Whatever the reason, I'm sure he's already been contacted by Dancing With the Stars. They're into disco-style foxtrotting, right?

In all seriousness, it's a shame the Raptors went on to lose this game 103-92. I would've loved to see what Pietrus' celebratory rumba looked like.
