Any time you can incorporate a wine glass, maracas and a Hawaiian lei into your dance routine, you're doing strong work. 

All of these essential components were found in the "Call Me Maybe" rendition that Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale put together.

TMZ found video of the lefty body-dropping to Carly Rae Jepsen at the wedding of a former teammate in 2012. To call Sale's dance "art" wouldn't quite cut it. This is a national treasure.

Jimmy Traina of Fox Sports believes Sale might've been overserved.

"We're going to speculate that whatever is in the large glass Sale is holding may have something to do with his uninhibited performance, but it doesn't matter," Traina writes. "It's still a thing of beauty."

I don't know what Sale was drinking, but I'll have two. 

The White Sox lefty is leaving nothing but smoking earth on the mound, eating up batters for a 4-0 record and a 1.89 ERA this season. He pitched a perfect game all the way into the sixth inning against the New York Yankees earlier this month in his first game back from the disabled list (left flexor strain).

This video is only further proof that Sale is six-and-a-half feet of dance floor hustle and American muscle. He jumps offstage, falls at the word "fall" and steals maracas. And you go to hell if you can't admit having rocked out to "Call Me Maybe."

I've seen grown men in suits on the Las Vegas strip lose their minds to Carly Rae Jepsen. It happens to everyone, and it'll happen to you.

The only question now is who rocks a party harder: Sale or New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara? 

Amukamara posted video over Memorial Day weekend from a wild bar mitzvah. It was like Ultra for tweens. 

I'd say it's close.

As for Sale, the "Call Me Maybe" footage only confirms his life is in midseason form. When you're 25, throwing untouchable stuff and immolating dance floors, you're doing it right.

Now someone get this man another maraca so we can start a traveling band.
