Running in a fashion where your hands look like they are superglued to dinner plates.
John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack in the BBC TV series "Torchwood", when running or being chased by aliens, runs with the palms of his hands flat and facing each other i.e. 'Platehands". This is meant to create the impression that Jack is "dynamic" and an "action hero", but instead looks like he's been involved in a domestic accident and not had time to attend the casualty ward.
