What does every single Fast and the Furious movie have, besides fast cars? A dance scene, that’s what. All seven films take a moment between races to show a bunch of scantily-clad extras bopping to music. These scenes are intended as pure eye candy, but they often walk the line between “sexy” and “awkward.” Here are seven GIFs honoring the most awkward background dancers from the first six movies (including two from the original 2001 film, because we just couldn’t pick a favorite).
The Fast and Furious (2001)
This dancer is proof of a rarely-photographed phenomenon: Being within a foot of Vin Diesel makes people spontaneously lick themselves.
The Fast and the Furious (2001)
“Should I tell the director I’m afraid of heights?”
“Dammit, Gina, I’m trying to focus on my sexy Rick Astley dance.”
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
For the club scene, all the male dancers were given unbuttoned white shirts. Then a PA went around and super-glued their feet to the floor.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
Director Justin Lin just told this guy to blend.
Fast & Furious (2009)
As these dancers learned, it’s tough to look sexy when you’re trying very hard not to look down.
Fast Five (2011)
Good news, dancer! You get to be in a big scene with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. Except for your head.
Fast and Furious 6 (2013)
What are these dancers standing on? The gear shift? The cup holder?
