This weekend, amid Andrew Hozier-Byrne taking the Grammy audience to church and conjuring witchcraft with Annie Lennox, a new "Take Me To Church" video staring dancer Sergei Polunin appeared online. The clip, directed by David LaChapelle, centers on a sensual routine by Polunin and it is very... sexy?


Polunin is serving all of the clean lines and emotion ballet is built upon, especially for a moving and political song like Hozier's. The Russian dancer—and noted "bad boy" of ballet for antics like quitting a company just before he was to led their newest production—recently moved to America and is pursing an acting career. Perhaps he'll follow in Mikhail Baryshnikov's footsteps and land a drama like Sex & The City? But on a less intellectual note, let's talk about those stretch pants and, like, all that ... stretching. Is it hot in here?

The height and hang time he's getting on some of those leaps is incredible. Between this and the Sia videos, I'm really excited for a whole new era of well-choreographed music videos. Love love love.
