Joe Jonas Dances In High Heels [Video]
Prior to seeing what is probably the best use of YouTube ever in the history of mankind, I had only a vague idea of who the Jonas brothers were.
Male versions of Miley Cyrus, I assumed. Corporate creations designed to mess with teenage hormones and turn teens into purchasing robots. How terribly wrong I was. The Jonas brothers are clearly here to usher in a whole new definition of masculinity. Watch this video. Watch it. You'll be so happy you did.
Now there's something I never thought I'd see. A member of a boy band owned by Disney. Yes. Disney, breaking the mold of traditional masculinity to dance around in heels.
Admittedly, the Jonas brothers are all kind of on the feminine side anyway, and they're young, which adds to their general femininity. It's also impossible not to notice that Joe especially is so classically good looking in a manga sense that it is hard to believe that he wasn't bred in a labrotory by Disney. I wouldn't put it past them, those guys are serious about entertainment and everyone knows free range people quite often have flaws in their asymetrical bodies.
In case you have no idea who Joe Jonas is (if you're not an American girl between the age of 6 and 16 there's a good chance you don't), he's a 19 year old middle brother of the Jonas brothers, a band of three, Kevin, Joe and Nick. There's an extra Jonas brother floating around somewhere, but they don't talk about him quite so much.
The Jonas Brothers got their start on the cesspool of tween programming that is Hannah Montana, and soon became an overnight success, Disney style. As you can tell by the opening of the video, they prefer a stilted acting style which mostly involves overstating lines and staring into the camera as if its not really there, but it is, but it isn't.
Joe, the star of this little movie is favored by many girls who find him to be the dreamiest of the brothers due to his long hair and girlish good looks. Oh yeah. The future of masculinity is here, and Disney isn't going to be left behind.
My prediction: It's only a matter of time before Hannah Montana befriends a 14 year old crossdressing guy on a very special episode and the stores are suddenly stocked with brightly colored skirts and tank skanky tops for guys. Awesome.
