Video of the Day: “Figga Please”


We always assumed that hip hop and men’s figure skating were like two ships passing in the night. And then we saw Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek’s hip hop debut, “Figga Please.” In what may be the best ode to men’s figure skating since “What Would Brian Boitano Do?,” Lysacek (OK, so it’s actually Brooklyn performer Don McCloskey) manages to make terms like triple salchow and triple lutz sound totally street.
