Blue-screened "Vogue"-ing kid melts time capsule, our brains

There are college students across the country who plaster their dorm rooms with posters that include the phrase, "Dance like no one is watching." And then there are 9-year-olds who dance to Madonna songs in front of a blue screen. That's what Robert Jeffrey did 1991, at the age of 9, dancing to Madonna's "Vogue" in front of a blue screen depicting the New York City skyline. Jeffrey says of the video: "I performed to MADONNA's "VOGUE" in the Summer of 1991 when my parents took me to Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. A business in the casino at the time gave tourists the chance to lip-synch to their favorite pop songs in front of a blue screen background, and I was lucky enough to partake that summer." And thus did Robert audition to be a Lady Gaga's back-up dancer when Gaga was in kindergarten. Sure, it's no Bible B-Boy or Timmy The Lady Gaga fan, but it's still amazing in a dozen different ways.
