Here I am with a newly framed poster of the New York City Breakers. These guys were amazing. You may know them from the 1984 movie “Beat Street”, where they had some great battles with the Rock Steady Crew.
It’s a very rare poster from 1984 and I’ve had it for years. Finally got it framed and up on the wall! It’s an instructional breakdance poster. So now, I can practice and pretty soon be able to impress chicks with my with my breakdance skills as taught by the best. Personally, I think poppin’ is cooler than breakdancing. And this poster teaches that too. Mr. Wave was one of the best at that.
Maybe I’ll write a breakdance movie for me & Tracy to star in and we can reunite the New York City Breakers & give the Rock Steady Crew a breakdanc rematch in the subway. That’s one of the scripts I’ll be workin’ on. On the side. Maybe I’ll call it “Breakoff”. Or maybe I’ll just call it “Breakin’ 3”. ‘Cause they never made “Breakin’ 3”.
For a while, breakdancing died. And I remember the exact moment. At the end of “Breakin’”, there was an announcement; basically a sneak peak for “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”. And when we saw that in the theater, we freaked out! Couldn’t wait for “Breakin’ 2”! But then 7 months later (that’s right – “Breakin 2” came out the same year as “Breakin’ 1”!), when we went to go see “Breakin’ 2”, we watched the movie, watched all the credits…and there was no preview for “Breakin’ 3”. And we were very upset and depressed. To me, that’s the moment breakin’ died. But for the past several years now, it’s totally come back to life. Which is great. So, one of my goals, is to star as well as write & produce “BREAKIN’ 3”. And I’ll cast Boogaloo Shrimp, Shabbaa-Doo as well as Mr. Wave & Crazy Legs.
Gotta work on this one when Liz Lemon isn’t lookin’. I’m sure she loves breakdance movies, but I’m not supposed to be workin’ on them at TGS. The poster inspires me, maybe I'll bring this poster to my office at TGS. Nah, I'll leave it at home, that way I can practice the moves in private.
