Ray Lewis’s dance: Denver mayor pays off bet (video)

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock finished paying off his little wager on the Broncos’ playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens, doing a pretty fair impression of Ray Lewis’s dance.

Still, he’s no Kenan Thompson.

Hancock fulfilled the first part of the bet by sending a box of steaks to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, but the second part of his wager was delayed when he pulled a muscle at the National Western Stock Show (not, as rumored, practicing the Lewis dance) last week .

On Tuesday, his office posted a video. The best part? Yeah, that’s a bit of artificial turf upon which he is gyrating. The second-best part? The staff seems about 74 percent less fired up than the Ravens usually are by the dance.

H/T Buzzfeed for the GIF
