Norwegian Hockey Player Shows Entire World What Proper Dancing Looks Like

Nobody in the history of the world has ever moved their body as successfully or with as much unbridled passion as this hockey player just did. 

Sure, you might think that's just the kind of hyperbole running rampant on the Internet, but then you watch the video and are caught helpless, forced to agree that this is the best representation of dancing ever created. 

Yahoo! Sports' Sean Leahy spotted this video of a postgame celebration dance that really could be a tutorial on how to move your body in a manner that will incite crowds and cause bystanders to cheer with enthusiasm. 

We haven't seen this level of dancing since, well, since this:  

Now that we have delivered the necessary amount of praise, we can tell you the man with all the moves is Norwegian hockey forward Adrian Alvarstein who plays for Narvik Hockey (Arctic Eagles). 

His team had just beat Viking Hockey in Norwegian second-division play. While the rest of his teammates went to the locker room to unwind, Alvarstein decided to put on a one-man show for the benefit of fans who stayed. 

The song is DJ Contiez's "Trumpsta," and the man busting a move on the ice explains to the impetus behind his dance exhibition (translated via Yahoo! Sports). "I'm trying to get it out to all of Norway. When people hear the song, they should know that there is this dance that apply."

Essentially, if you hear this song while working today—and why wouldn't you, really?—you are mandated to move as if you heard some hockey version of "Gangnam Style." And time will only tell if Alvarstein started something that will be just as infectious as that popular song's dance. 

We also simply have to include a portion of what Leahy had to write about this particular player and his rather intriguing background: 

Alvarstein comes with an interesting background, as he told in 2012. He was born in Swaziland, Africa in 1991 and abandoned on the steps of a church with his umbilical cord still intact. He was sent to an orphanage and eventually adopted by a Norwegian woman who was unable to have children. He began skating at a young age and has been playing high level hockey in Norway since he was 16.

Having absolutely no skating ability myself, I simply have to marvel at a man who could keep up with Justin Timberlake, all while wearing skates. 

Now if you are wondering how to properly "let one's hair down," follow Alvarstein's lead.
