Turns Out That 30 Years Later Kevin Bacon Can Still Dance Like He Did in Footloose

Jimmy Fallon announces that dancing has been outlawed on The Tonight Show the same day Bacon is scheduled as a guest. What a mistake.

Everyone knows what happens when you tell Kevin Bacon he's not allowed to dance (hint: he dances anyway). So when Bacon's appearance on The Tonight Show totally "coincidentally" coincided with the implementation the program's new no-dancing law, the actor had no choice but to channel his inner teen angst into getting "loose, footloose." It was the most thrilling revamp of the '80s classic since Broadway's 1998 version starring Jeremy Kushnier.
