Blogger ‘Joe the Peacock’s’ wife had gone out of town, so with the house all to himself, Joe decided it was the most appropriate of times to do a Tom Cruise/’Risky Business’-slide across the kitchen floor.

As you can see in the video below, Joe’s plan only lasted a few bars into Bob Seger’s ‘Old Time Rock and Roll,’ and he stumbles and falls so quickly that we are unable to determine if he was done in by an over-waxed floor, the wrong kind of socks, or just a general lack of coordination.

While we appreciate Joe’s decision to cover his thighs rather than mimic Cruise’s famous underwear routine, this video would have been funnier in his skivvies.
