Wham's "Last Christmas" remixed, with erotic butter art dancing (messed-up holiday music video)

Video Link. Dylan Mitchell-Funk and Slugabed remix a Wham! holiday classic, with a woman dancing erotically on cubes of melting butter or lard or something. Merry Chrimbus, everyone.

Update: the source video is Indonesian artist Melati Suryodarmo's "EXERGIE - butter dance," a performance she first gave in 2000. Material used: 20 blocks of butter.


  1. Hmmm. Grad student art project? (The original video, I mean.)

    And the word erotic may need q marks. Watching this just gives me a sad.

    – butter dance



    Wearing a tight black dress and red shoes, Suryodarmo walks into the space, and steps on the pieces of butter. She starts dancing. Melati Suryodarmo is flailing, crashing heavily downwards, and continuously being on the verge of standing, slipping and falling on the butter- greasy dance floor.

    Duration of the performance : 20 minutes
    Music: Daeng Basri Sila and Khaeruddin, Drums of Makassar/ Kendang Makassar
    Material : 20 blocks of butter

  3. Wow, Saint Nick on a stick.  Thanks for this.

    Have to say, even thought it’s art, I felt bad about her repeated falls…ouch.

  4. As a Wisconsiner, I am curious as to the qualities of this butter. Is it like the salted sweet cream butter I get from Weyauwega or is it more like the sticky European style or even like pre-clarified ghee?

    I need to know.

  5. WTF?

    “This video has been removed as a violation of You Tube’s policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.”

    Unless you are made of butter, how could this be harassing or threatening?

  6. Oh gawd forbid anyone harass, bully or threaten someone/thing on the internet).  JESUS TITTY FUCKING CHRIST.

    1. There’s a somewhat blurry line where I think that internet collective stalking/bullying should be preventable or otherwise addressed, but mashing up an art performance ~based around some amount of humiliation~ is not a part of this.
