The Sideshow

Man turns lost hoops bet into big win

Has to dance on street corner, but ends up with a date and plenty of partners

Andrew Wilcox had never lost a one-on-one basketball game to his little brother. So he felt pretty confident making a bet that would result in the loser having to dance for 30 minutes on a busy street corner in Provo, Utah.

The bad news: Andrew lost three games in a row. Actually, maybe that's the good news. The young man ended up landing a date and making plenty of friends while rocking out to the good-time vibes of Carly Rae Jepsen and Psy.

Lemons, meet lemonade.

A report from Buzz60 notes that after Andrew began to dance, he was quickly joined by a woman who worked at a nearby auto repair shop. She gave him her number, and they're going to dinner this week.

But the video is about more than just scoring digits. It's almost a celebration. Strangers dance for no good reason. A dog is excited to be part of the action. And, it must be said — Andrew knows how to move. Dude does a back flip like it's no big whoop.

All lost bets should end this well.
