Joel McHale and Rob Riggle enlightened us with the BEST handshake in the entire world last night at the ESPY awards. We were expecting them to do the old manly bro shake but instead they premiered a choreographed number that isn’t the most efficient in terms of time but it’s definitely more fun than the traditional business greeting. They both have so much to teach us about coolness.
Here it is broken down:
1. From a distance of 1.5 feet away, grab each other’s right hands and shake back and forth.
2. While firmly keeping hold of your right hands, walk in a circle once while lengthening out your left arms out and dazzling with jazz fingers.
3. Release your grip and face each other. Bend down and extend your right foot out behind you. Grab the other person’s right foot and shake it.
4. Return to a standing up position. Sit on an imaginary teeter totter and take turns going up and down. The key is to show your excitement.
After the handshake is done you can exchange your verbal greetings (hello, good day, ahoy) and go about your business.
