Kevin Bacon, you’re my hero.
In a sketch, “The Tonight Show” attempted to ban dancing. Host Jimmy Fallon even had an edict on a scroll informing the world that shaking your groove thing on “Tonight” was no longer allowed.
That is, until Bacon stepped in.
The former “Footloose” star couldn’t imagine “Tonight” without dancing. But he didn’t write a letter. He didn’t start a Facebook campaign. He danced.
And it was glorious.
Check out the tale of how Kevin Bacon brought dancing back to “Tonight” in the video below.
