Jookin' on the Ceiling: Lil Buck's Gravity-Defying Dance Moves

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

The world-renowned dancer Lil Buck collaborates with filmmaker Jacob Sutton in this mind-bending video for NOWNESS. The clever setup, a rotating wooden cube, allows Lil Buck to play off the floor, walls, and ceiling in a sequence that could have been choreographed by M.C. Escher. This isn't Sutton's first viral hit -- he stormed the Internet with this jaw-dropping glow-in-the-dark snowboarding video earlier this year. Rapper Azealia Banks provides a sassy (and explicit) soundtrack.
