Superman, Crank Dat and the Houdini

Alright, I've been trying to hold this post back until the Nebraska-Texas game, but after the first 2 weeks of Big 12 play, I'm not sure that I'll be alive, I may die with the Nebraska football program.

Anyway, you have undoubtedly heard the song Crank Dat by Soulja Boy. Its been all over the radio. Well there's a dance that goes with it as well, and you've probably seen it - you just may not know it yet. For instance, there have been a ton of college mascots performing the dance (hat tip: The Commission for the first spot on this). Of course, with this many people doing the dance, there has to be someone to teach it. Fortunately, Soulja Boy himself has put an instructional video on the Internets that has almost 10 million hits. 10 million?!? It must be instructional.

At this point you should have 2 questions: 1) What the hell is "Superman Dat Ho?" and 2) Are there more videos on the Internets of people dancing? Of course, you know I wouldn't let you leave with unanswered questions.

The first question is as easy as checking Urban Dictionary. The phrase "Superman dat Ho" most literally means (this crests the PG-13 boundary, so exercise caution kids):

When you ejaculate on a girl's back then put a blanket on her so when she stands up the blanket sticks therefore making her look like she has a cape.
In essence, it is a version of the Houdini, because, let's be honest, you're not just getting permission to superman your ho. Now you know.

To answer the second question, of course there is (there's about 100x as many as the awesome ghost riding videos). I was saving this for Texas because they do it on the sideline before games (they should prolly be working on not losing to KState). There's a ton of... Even Barney got in on the action. My favorite are these two, the first with two (presumably gay...not that there's anything wrong with that) guys, performing the dance with "technique."

The second video is three guys, two of which that dance awkwardly close together, breaking it down.

So now, go forth and begin Supermanning and/or Cranking Dat (that video even includes the Hiezman dance) with the latest (well, its not the latest, but it still growing) knowledge from the streets.

I hate that song - but now that I know what "Supaman dat ho" means, it's starting to grow on me. Thanks for the enlightenment Skeet Thrower!

The more you know.

I don't love that song...but I don't hate it. There's something about the repetitive chorus that stays in my head all day long. Superman dat ho!
