Blake McGrath + Justin Timberlake + Six Dudes in Fedoras = #SaturdayMade

Let's pretend it's Thursday for a sec, so I can say #tbt to when Blake McGrath was on the November 2006 cover of Dance Spirit.

Those jeans!

For those of you may not be familiar with McGrath, he's an L.A.-based commercial dancer from Canada, who, among other things, was a finalist on the first season of "So You Think You Can Dance."

He also happens to be a pretty stellar choreographer. (His work appeared on several seasons of "So You Think You Can Dance Canada.")  On Thursday, he released a video to Justin Timberlake's "Murder," enlisting the help of five other male dancers—including DS fave WilldaBeast Adams. It's got canes, fedoras and skinny ties; it's got red lighting and smoke; it's got six super smooth dudes dancing to music by the inventor of smooth (JT, duh). Need I say more? Enjoy!
