VIDEO: Spencer Hawes Does The Dougie, Or Something Resembling It

The Dougie is still all the rage as America makes a fool of itself partaking in a dance craze that's stretched well-past what I expected its lifetime to be. It's a simple dance, really, and all it takes is a little hip movement, a little hand movement and a quick rub of the head. On Thursday night, during a Philadelphia 76ers team bonding activity, 7-foot center and Washington native Spencer Hawes got his Dougie as Evan Turner and others giggled like giddy schoolgirls in the background.

It's not often you see a 7-footer break out the Dougie so, naturally, it was caught on video by his teammates. A mere 12 hours later, the video was on the Internet, and Hawes' Dougie had gone mainstream. Enjoy the video, originally posted by The 700 Level.

I'd make fun or Hawes or mock him mercilessly, but he actually has some rhythm and swagger, neither of which I expected to see out of him.
