Rob Ford catches international attention with dance

Even Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's mundane and seemingly innocuous appearances still generate international interest.

Ford participated in a holiday-themed choir at the West Toronto Church Of God in North York over the weekend. Before Sunday night, a video of him dancing appeared on YouTube, racking up thousands of views and headlines as far away as the United Kingdom. The Daily Mail's headline, for instance, is Rob Ford, Toronto Mayor, dances uncontrollably in bizarre video.

Watch the video below.

The mayor's erratic behaviour has been the subject of media attention for some time. But his more regular appearances have caught attention online as memes. Videos of Ford dancing at an Olympic event and playing the bongos during a street festival have become popular, especially since he has been in the international media for admitting to smoking crack while in office.
