Watch Bruce Willis and the men of SNL twerk in "Boy Dance Party"

This is what's really going on in the man cave

Can SNL make a digital short into a party hit without the help of The Lonely Island? Last night's effort checked the list of necessary components: a sure-to-be-catchy catchphrase ("It's a boy dance party"), a copious amount of auto-tuning, a more-than-vaguely familiar beat and, of course, a faux-rap bridge ("In the olden days, the ladies stayed at home while the men went to work/But now it's time for the ladies to get out, so the men can twerk").

Oh, and it also features the enjoyable juxtaposition of a straight-faced Bruce Willis delivering the song's hook before breaking out into a twirl. On the whole, it's more enjoyable than Katy Perry's delivery of Roar, which itself probably could have benefitted from auto-tune (although her animal-suited backup musicians helped her sell it).


Watch Willis, cast members Taran Killam, Kenan Thompson, Bobby Moynihan, Jay Pharoah and newcomer Beck Bennett show off their dance moves:
