Listen here, just because you’ve seen the Predator movies, that doesn’t mean you know the Predators. After all, you’re really only seeing the dreadlocked aliens “on the clock,” and just because they enjoy hunting and butchering the odd group of humans, that doesn’t mean that’s all they enjoy. After all, eventually human season is over and you’ve got to find something else to occupy your time, like cross stitch or hot yoga. But here’s a little secret you probably don’t know: deep down, most Predators really, really enjoy dancing. In fact, here’s what really happened at the end of Predator 2.
See how graceful they can be? That whole “ugly motherfucker” thing just seems hurtful now, doesn’t it?
This particular bit of behind-the-scenes silliness was orchestrated by a dancer named Lionel Douglas, who played one of the Predators in the scene (he’s identified during the video). Props to the talented performers, because I’m betting it’s pretty damn hot under all that makeup.
If I were independently wealthy, I would buy the rights to Predator 2 and replace the existing ending with this dance off, which would play out under the closing credits. And all would be right with the world.
