Ellen DeGeneres Dances in the Street – Watch the Host’s Oscars Trailer!
Ellen was born to dance!
On Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013, the charming Oscars trailer featuring 2014’s host debuted online.
Directed by Bridesmaids’ Paul Feig, it begins with the daytime talk show host adjusting her bow tie and lacing her sneakers. DeGeneres then hits the streets to pantomime “The Walker” by Fitz & the Tantrums—all while showing off her best dance moves, of course.
Before long, 250 tuxedo-clad backup dancers join DeGeneres on the Warner Bros. studio lot. So You Think You Can Dance’s Stephen “tWitch” Boss choreographed the group number.
“Paul Feig has a reputation of being hilarious and nice and smart,” the comedienne said in a behind-the-scenes video.
“I thought this is a great idea and I loved it. And I want to be in Bridesmaids 2, so 2+2: great Oscars promo, Bridesmaids 2, cha-ching.”
