Video: British Comedian Bill Bailey Dances the Tango to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” on Strictly Come Dancing

For the semi-final round of Strictly Come Dancing — which, as far as I can tell, is basically the BBC’s version of Dancing with the Stars — the British comedian Bill Bailey and his partner, professional dancer Oti Mabuse, did something fairly unsual: they danced the tango to “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.

So how were they? I mean… it feels a bit like watching your parents trying to be cool. But it’s still pretty good. Like, you’re talking about an amateur dancer risking making an ass out of himself on television. It’s impressive, even if it’s not exactly hip.

Besides, Bailey has a longstanding relationship with this “Sandman”: in 2011, he covered the song (er, sort of) as part of the run up to that year’s Sonisphere.
