WATCH: Dancing Man Challenges Richard Simmons To Stand Still For 60 Seconds

Legendary fitness guru and real-life Energizer Bunny Richard Simmons has spent the last 40 years of his life dancing, jumping, twirling, and doing just about anything he could to get you really excited about exercise. He’s never met a camera he didn’t want to dance for, and the few times he actually sat down in a chair, he still couldn’t contain himself!

This week, BuzzFeed dropped in on Richard’s new “Workout Wednesdays” to ask the most important question of our time: “Can Richard Simmons stand still for 60 seconds?”

Check it out, the results may surprise you.

    Not that I have the first clue who this man is but the video though a little strange was surprisingly funny..dreadful hair cut though..I thought the afro died out years ago

  • B Damion it crazy that I still remember the cow bells lol…I am not ashamed to admit that I still have atleast 2 of his old workout videos.

    @AndrewIB, Richard Simmons without the afro is like Tammy Faye Bakker without the mascara. It’s like brunch without mimosas. It’s like a Madonna concert without stage fog. It’s like “Valley of the Dolls” without the substance abuse and overwrought self absorption.

    I’m placing you on Gay Probation, mister.
