Oscar Isaac's Ex Machina Dance Apparently Works Great With Any Song, See It For Yourself

Is there anything Hollywood actor – and overall charisma factory – Oscar Isaac can’t do? As of right now, it doesn’t look that way. We know the man can act, we know the man can sing, and now we know that he can dance to just about any song you throw his way. The Internet has collectively come to the realization that his awesome dance sequence from last year’s Ex Machina works with most well known songs – and we’ve all been having an absolute blast with that revelation. Check out the clip below to see for yourself.

The dance scene from Ex Machina didn’t include any part of The Bee Gees’ "Stayin’ Alive," and yet from the above Twitter account of Oscar Dances, one would assume that’s how it’s supposed to look in the final cut of the film. Those of you who remember the scene in question will recall that it entails Oscar Isaacs’ character Nathan and his assistant Kyoko dancing to Oliver Cheatham's "Get Down Saturday Night." It’s one of the weirdest, and downright most delightful scenes in the entire movie.

Of course, if you still don’t believe that the sequence will work perfectly with any song, then perhaps we should switch up the genres a bit. Maybe we should throw a little bit of Smash Mouth’s "I’m A Believer" in there to see what happens – although I’m sure that’s the first time anyone has ever used that sentence before.

Okay, so far we are two for two on this whole Oscar Isaac dancing situation. Some of you might not be entirely convinced yet, and I get that; both of the songs used above are fairly well suited to dancing and it could simply be a coincidence. With that in mind, someone out there on the Internet was kind enough to sync this scene to the Kim Possible theme song. If this clip doesn’t convince you that the scene works with any song, then absolutely nothing will.
