The Errol Flynn

The Errol Flynn, also known in slang as Earl Flynn, is a Detroit-bred dance that is awesome. Based on a dance developed by a heroin trafficking street gang bred on Detroit's east side in the 1970's, this dance involves elaborate and flamboyant hand moves. It is elegant, pompous and super hood. Here is a video of a young man who has perfected the moves, down to a slow-motion Matrix-style pirouette.

More about the Errol Flynn gang and their demise can be found in this Wikipedia article. Interestingly, as the article points out, Judge Mathis was a member of the Errol Flynns. Also, if you go back to my "2-0 Swagger" post below and peep the "Another One Bites The Dust" Detroit Lions song, Jimmy "Spiderman" Allen shouts the dance out when he suggest that the team might "Errol Flynn in the end-zone". Swifty McVay of D12 is also a world-renowned Errol Flynn expert. This is very special.
