The turn of the century brought a whole new meaning to the elephant dance. No longer did men rely on the antiquated "elephant chain," but rather found self expression in the modern version, usually performed while drunk.
To perform the elephant dance, a man turns out his pockets and allows his penis to hang out of his zipper. Then he spreads his legs apart and shakes his body and arms much like the Harlem Shake in an attempt to swing the "trunk" in circles (similar to the world renown meat-spin video).
Said to have originated in Charlotte, NC.
Last night Ray Ray got plastered and tried to do the elephant dance for some strippers.
