Dancing Guard 5

If you think your job’s a bit of a drag, spare a thought for the Grenadier Guards and their daily routine of standing still, marching, and standing still again.

The monotony appears to have all got too much for one guardsman, who, in a YouTube video captured by Andy Richards, appears to bring a bit of personal flair to proceedings.

With this little dance for example:

Then full-on pirouetting to the right:

Dancing Guard 3

The ‘wait for it…’

And back to the left:

Never stop:

Watch the video in full:

No twerking, sadly. Dancing Guardsman, we salute you, and wish you all the best with your no-doubt imminent job hunt.

Keep the party going with our round-up of Notting Hill Carnival police officers dancing in nine funky GIFs.
