There are some pretty incredible break dancers in Iran. Who knew that hip-hop's reach was that long? Check out 5 of the best Iranian break dance videos online.
The date-stamp on the video says this amazing showdown occurred in 1991 and the description says the dancers are Shahram Kharchang, Reza Bache, Mehdi Tony and Ahmad Lore. And as good as their dancing is, that's not even the main event in this incredible viral video. It's the combination of the setting -- persian rugs and white curtains everywhere -- and the spectators -- Iranian women dressed in traditional head-covering hijab. Hip-hop, '90s fashions and Muslim culture all clash, making this video 9:20 of awesome. Also, there's a guy dancing on crutches.
La Bouche's 1995 hit "Be My Lover" (and a slew of unidentified Techno jams afterwards) serves as the backdrop for great feats of break dancing that went down sometime in the recent past in Tehran's Park Shahanshahi. The dudes spinning on their heads towards the 6:30 mark are probably the highlight in this great (but too long) viral video.
This guy is some sort of laborer (probably a construction worker, judging from his plaster-stained clothes). But in spite of his presumably busy work schedule, dude still finds time to kick an absolutely fluid break dancing routine. He caps the whole thing off with a near-flawless Moonwalk as well.
