A dance move of Toronto origins practiced mainly by relocated Australians. It is a fad dance that plays on planking and personal jokes. It sets out to disturb the traditional ideals of club dance music where one would usual exert more passion as a song builds and up and breaks down, the hippo is the opposite side of the spectrum where one intends to be as quite, slumped and still as possible at the climactic part of a song.
bang! He just nailed the hippo!" "he just hippo'd the shit out of the dance floor! "HE'S DOIN' THE HIPPO!"
