Video: Thom Yorke Does "Single Ladies" Dance

Opinions of Radiohead's The King of Limbs vary, and this has been a symptom of every post-Bends album the band has released. A few supporters of the new album have dismissed Thom Yorke's spastic dancing in the new "Lotus Flower" video as nothing more than an unpleasant retread of Jamiroquai's "Virtual Insanity" steps. The online community hears these cries. Any concerns about Yorke's sanity are solved by pairing the "Lotus Flower" footage with Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." All of a sudden, this is no worse than a drunken cousin hogging the dance floor at a family reunion.

Update: This and many other Yorke dancing feats are on display at the Dancing Thom Tumblr.
