Alexander BOK is a self-described “prankster” who wanted to participate in the “dance dare” challenge issued by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” He wound up being thrown to the ground by New York police officers. Watch the video below.

For anyone who doesn’t know, DeGeneres asked viewers to submit videos in which they dance behind unsuspecting strangers. BOK filmed himself enthusiastically dancing to PSY’s “Gangnam Style” behind a number of unwitting New Yorkers in and around Grand Central Terminal. But when he tried to dance in the street behind some cops, they reacted angrily.

“What’s wrong with you?” asks one police officer, approaching BOK. When he explains that he was “just dancing,” the cops shove him against their vehicle and ask, “Are you f*cking kidding me? What the f*ck’s wrong with you?” Eventually, four officers surround BOK and menace him. Eventually, one throws him to the street.

BOK posted the video to YouTube, saying, “Hey Ellen, here we go! On Christmas Eve I decided to bring joy to New York by doing your challenge!!!! But thing didn’t go quite well, here is the video!!!” We’re glad he still seems so upbeat despite what happened. See the footage below, around the 2:30 mark, and tell us what you think.
