TribBlog: Dallas City Officials Do the Robot, the Running Man and the Hula In City Promo Video Featuring Mark Cuban

In a new city promotional video, Dallas city council members, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and a dozen other celebrities bust a move — and risk lifelong embarrassment. Did I mention Vanilla Ice is involved?

Newsflash, city of Dallas: Watching city officials dance may not inspire tourists to visit your fine city. Watching Mark Cuban dance may make them avert their eyes.

In a new promotional video — "One More Thing" — everyone from Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and celebrity chef Dean Fearing make their best pitch for the city, and then do their own personal dance moves to seal the deal. Many Dallas city council members also bust a move, accompanied by some particularly cheesy music.

Notable dancers include: former NBA point guard Spud Webb, country star Pat Green, Dallas Stars player Mike Modano, former baseball pitcher Nolan Ryan, and current Cowboys players Martellus Bennett, Bradie James and Ken Hamlin.

Notable dance moves performed include the hula, the running man and a particularly disturbing robot.
