Kevin Bacon time travels and recreates famous Footloose scenes

Kevin Bacon danced his way onto The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week and danced his way through time. The 55-year-old actor was set to appear on the late night talk show when Fallon decreed that dancing was to be outlawed on The Tonight Show. Of course, this scenario is nothing new to Bacon, who quickly grabbed some tight jeans, a good beer to throw, and a burgundy sports coat, all the things needed for an uprising.

Bacon and Fallon perfectly recreated two of the major dance scenes from his iconic 1984 film Footloose. The only thing I can’t figure out is whether it’s more shocking that Footloose is already 30 years old or that 30 years later, Kevin Bacon looks the same. I’d like six degrees of whatever his beauty regiment entails.

Watch episodes of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon every weekday at 3E/12P on Much.
