Japanese porn director Henry Tsukamoto is famous (infamous) for ending his movies with dance numbers that can be summed up best in two words: somewhat goofy.

Note: This article might contain content some readers find objectionable.

The cast of the movie side-step their way out, holding hands. The whole thing is less sexy and more silly. I mean, line dancing?! Really? The cast do remove their clothes, but here, you can see an edited version. While it does not feature any nudity, it does feature wtf:

These endings are called the "Henry Dance" (ヘンリーダンス), and they tend to look like this.

Online in Japan, a couple threads have popped up recently, with commenters noting that while these curtain calls seem old fashioned, they think they're quite wonderful. Since the mid-1980s, Henry Tsukamoto has made numerous adult movies and filmed a surprising number of dance numbers.

The sequences are rather surreal, but I guess the same goes for adult movies in general. Perhaps?

On NicoNico video, some users have added new music to the Henry Dance scenes, giving the numbers a totally different, if not even stranger, feel:

I'm glad this is picking up. A lot lot more events in life need to end in dance numbers. Even subtle, toned down line dancing like this.

  • Business meetings ending with a CEO Samba
  • Dinner parties featuring chips and Salsa
  • Homecare Instruction videos featuring Bob Vila doing the Sprinkler
  • Get put under for gastrointestinal surgery. Wake up to your doctor and nurse doing a Belly Dance.
  • Tip a plumber for ending his service with Clogging.
  • End the day at the ol' hunting lodge with a Fox Trot.
  • Passacaglia

Really, the possibilities are endless.
