Kevin Bacon’s been having a comeback of sorts recently. To be fair, I think it’s well past time. Regardless, it’s also worth mentioning that this is the 30th anniversary of Footloose, a pretty big deal for those who appreciate 80s movies revolving around dancing and using said dancing to stick it to “the man”.
On the recent The Tonight Show, Kevin Bacon proved he can still dance. Swaggering on in with style, in homage to some of Footloose’s most famous dance scenes, Bacon pulled out all the stops. Footloose is one of my favorite 80s flicks, and it’s such fan service to see him reliving the role that put him on the map. I can’t speak directly for The Tonight Show, since I only catch bits and clips, like this majestic gem, but I’m happy to see they are making worthwhile television.
