File this one in the "facepalm" section of your memory.

The Idaho Cubs are billed as Class-A Short Season affiliate of, obviously, the Chicago Cubs on their team websites -- but it's actually a prospect team sponsored by the Cubs' actual Class A affiliate: The Boise Hawks. This roster is full of players born in the early-to-mid 90s, none of whom are technically in the Cubs system. It's more like a prospect camp.

Anyway, the coaches must have believed these players need to either be A) humiliated or B) better at footwork, because the following video shows them being taught how to properly dance to LMFAO's "Party Rock." Seriously, you can't make this stuff up ...

Now let's not get all serious here. Even the "teacher" appeared to be laughing at a few different points of the actual dance. Maybe it's to weed out the "too cool" kids? Still, this was ... uh ... odd. To say the least.

Memo to aspiring camerapeople. If you are recording the video AND audio of something, DO NOT chew gum while recording because it can be heard on the recording. It sounded like a cow was chewing its cud.

 Wow, not sure what to say about this one... This is the 2011 version of the Macarena, or the Achey Breaky, who let the dogs out? More recetly teach me how to Dougie. These stupid dances never age well.
