Choreography Teacher

January 25, 2011

We wanted to spice things up on this tour, so we’re hiring this guy to teach us some moves.  He comes highly recommended (has worked for Biebs, JT, Ursher, and the like).  I’m excited to start the sessions next week.

    Much more effective when muted and watched with a Linkin Park song in background.

  2. madshell on February 11, 2011 at 4:06 am

    lol
    but seriously, u should do one -cough-prank-cough- show and show Biebs his place.

  3. tomvanderbeek on February 8, 2011 at 9:52 am

    A couple of years ago, I thought it already after visiting a concert of you guys. You need a choreographer like him. Finally it comes true. Heck yes.

  4. toffee649 on February 7, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Hey Mike,

    At the LPU summit you were asking me about my art from the artbook you’ve got for 10th anniversary of Hybrid Theory. So, here’s my page with my art:

  15. evik90 on January 31, 2011 at 6:37 am

    “and the like”😀 you know someone hit Bieber with a bottle of water at his concert? No wonder – you should change your decision😀 or make a parody like Blink 182 or Vanilla Sky did😉

  16. adrixlp on January 30, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    hey mike, i know everyone is asking this to you but:
    are guys gonna participate on transformers 3 soundtrack??
    i know you are not gonna answer me, ’cause you love to surprise us hehe
    anyway thanx 4 taking time to reading
    greetings from Mexico, we love you.

  17. lpgurl on January 30, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    O Wow…Serious Fail…lol

  18. surfacefactor on January 30, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    so is this your way of telling us that the video will be coming out soon?

  19. anaphx on January 30, 2011 at 9:20 am

    Hey Mike!

    Any update on your new video for BITS?

  20. braffschein on January 29, 2011 at 7:07 am

    ohh maaaan, you’re killing me😀

    i think now you guys must really do this on tour
    that would be the most successful LP show ever
    someone probably took that serious, so don’t disappoint fans, OK?😉

  21. penneysound on January 28, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    i’m going to say this in all seriousness

    i think the next singler should be “when they come for me”, and the video should be done bollywood style.

    not a fancy costume thing. something like the credits of “slumdog millionaire”, plain clothes and a little gritty. it should be set in the martial law setting heard in “empty spaces” (which would have to be included in the video). i’m picturing barbed wire and guard towers with searchlights. but there must be bollywood-style dancing. just make sure it doesn’t look like this video and you’ll be good to go. no cranks, to spanks, no lasso, none of that timberlake crap.

  23. italianarmenian on January 28, 2011 at 2:04 am

    Hey, wait- that’s how I dance… LOL🙂 Double dream hands!!!

  24. biloxibutterfly on January 27, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    Mike, you’re crazy and I love it! The band should make a video of this dance routine and post it. BRAD should be front and center🙂

  25. liyananaznim on January 27, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    “…Biebs, JT, Ursher, “and the like” LOL

    LinkinPark should do this sometimes!

  26. KalyeSound on January 27, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    haha! nice!

  27. Fekenji on January 27, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    OMG! I wanna see you dancing like that Mike, will be funny kkkkk

  28. nevermind1313 on January 27, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    huahuahuaha

  29. juliahempel on January 27, 2011 at 11:39 am

    OMG that would be nice in High School Musical or something like that…
    I just try to imagine how you dance like that. ^^
    Well I’m excited. (;

  30. dsdaaa on January 27, 2011 at 8:49 am

    Linkin Park is the best group-artist in world, don’t need to change business

  31. Shinoda's Army on January 27, 2011 at 5:05 am

    Senile dementia

  32. janemari3 on January 27, 2011 at 4:46 am

    OMG! I tried watching this video muted & played some LP songs that could fit with it… This step goes great with “Bleed it out”!!! Try it! his clapping and some other parts is in tune with it. he even counted down to the chorus, said “yeah” after mike and each ended at almost the same time… LOL!!! just start the guitar playing as soon as hes shown after the title.

    Hope Mike, the band, and the people here try and enjoy that! And I hope you let me know when u did! It’d be fun to know what you think!

    Take care always!

  33. surfacefactor on January 27, 2011 at 4:22 am

    Mike..you know….sometimes…you can be really cheap…

  34. showmihomi on January 27, 2011 at 4:16 am

    OMG hilarious. lmao trying to imagine that in the next video. now that’s the key to breaking the charts and taking granma to a LP show.

  35. thegluelpfan on January 27, 2011 at 3:52 am

    You got Biebs haircut and now you want his choreographer?Someone’s got Bieber fever…😀 Btw the haircut looks better on you😛

  47. twin1213 on January 26, 2011 at 6:35 am

    LMAO!! My sister and I actually worked with this choreographer while in show choir back in 1988. It is great to see that “jazz hands” has such staying power.

    Btw, last night’s show in Detroit was smokin’ hot even without these sexy dance moves.

  48. aline4lp on January 26, 2011 at 6:28 am

    That’s funny,
    I wonder where you hold your mic while doing this on stage😉

  66. cincybmxlpfreak on January 25, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    😀 Thanks Mike. That just put a huge smile on my face.😀 I’ve never heard of “dream hands.” Lol!

  67. Alexandra Nofi on January 25, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    So, I see you finally decided to come out of the closet and admit that you truly are a boyband. Here-here! It’s nice to get that off your chest, ain’t it?

    You should totally do Double Dream Hands during Blackout. It would be spectacular.

  68. kathyxx on January 25, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    oooo are you guys gonna be in a shiny teeth toothpaste commercial!?

    Meanwhile, I will be out there with my double dream hands, scaring people.

  69. danibarquilia on January 25, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Oh my God, I’m dying here. I don’t know what is more funny: excitment about the dance or the video. LOL

  70. Misi on January 25, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    I agree with simona93, Only instead of track suits, monk clothing. And they have to keep serious/angry faces on through the whole dance. >:| *double dream hands* (and fire)

  71. milasouza11 on January 25, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    OMG… hahhahahhahha

  73. danebenxi on January 25, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Oh, geez! Hahaha! It’s gonna be funny when you do the moves, and Chester will do the teaching-lecture on how it should be properly done…More like a dance tutorial. And the rest of the band will be on their own instruments, playing as you two do the dancing moves. Hahaha

  74. simona93 on January 25, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    Oh Mike, PUHLEEEASE promise us that you’re gonna hire some dancers to stand on the sides of the stage in bright tracksuits and perform this while you play One Step Closer!!! I may not live in the USA to see it on my own eyes but I still hope someoe woul post it on the You Tube. It would make my day :D:D:D

  75. Heart Unhealed on January 25, 2011 at 2:07 pm

  78. Kiara on January 25, 2011 at 1:49 pm

  79. souneik on January 25, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    buhaha I’m doing that right now. It’s like a rain dance of sorts. Except for dreams…yea. I think he might be related to the guy off of 30 rock. My spidey senses are tingling…there telling me that Chester is somewhere near this video or not. 50/50 Just like I’m either gonna be like a monk that walks on water or totally insane 50/50.

  80. keineahnung84 on January 25, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    so you perform that dance during one step closer? or is it when they come for me?…I’d really love to see you dance like that just ONCE!!! ROFL

    LMAO!!! Honestly this guy reminds me the guy from Adams Family Values. The guy who was in the camp and was teaching the kids that silly choreo for the Pocahontas… =)))))))))

  85. andrea8157 on January 25, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    Wow, way to bring back nightmares. Back when I was in my highschool music program, we had to attend this program called America Sings and the guy from the video *John Jacobson* was the person who made all the ridiculous dance moves up for the songs. I think I would die from laughing if I ever seen you guys do those dance moves.

  86. tiasiandaly on January 25, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    your sense of humour gets me everytime :L
    its annoying when i try to show my sisters though, and their faces resemble a brick wall..

    i can see these movments working amazingly with shadow of the day😉
    ^ im joking…

  87. vickykun on January 25, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    HAHAHA! I love your humor!😄 Thank you so much for coming to Norway this summer!! I said you had to come to Norway the last time you were in Finland. And at the LP summit in London I gave you a teddy with the Norwegian flag on the back. You called him vodo Brad in the summit video! =D Thank you so much! I cant wait for the concert!!

  90. Nadia on January 25, 2011 at 12:40 pm

  97. evooba on January 25, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    Lmfao!!! You just made my day!!!😀 thx!

  98. adiek84 on January 25, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    If he works for Biebs he can show you his “hair-move”.
    If he works for Usher (or quote Mike: “URSHER” – I love pointing out typos!)he can show you how to get a six pack (not Guiness!).
    If he really works for JT he might give you Britney Spears’ number. Just for some crazy (really crazy) Saturday nights. She also might show you how to get the most immaculate crotch shot ever. Don’t shave your head though! (Random question: Is Chester in contact with Brit?)
    Long story short: you can only win with this guy!

  99. Ally on January 25, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    AHAHHAHA

  100. xoxoluvcoco on January 25, 2011 at 12:20 pm

  102. Ladysami on January 25, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    HAHA, that’s awesome! But I think it will only work for you guys if you wear his outfit too… all six of you matching😉

  104. Claudia B. on January 25, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    What the fudge. Mike you crack me up the past few days like hell. KEEP IT UP😀 Don’t stop.

    If that’s going to be in the REAL BITS video…. I’ll just… I don’t know what I’d do😀

  105. EpicLinkinPark on January 25, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    LOL, nice. I can’t wait to see you guys bust a move! Oh, is it just me or does this guy look like Bruce Jenner?

  106. PabloR on January 25, 2011 at 12:04 pm

  107. polyattack on January 25, 2011 at 12:04 pm
