Oscar Isaac's 'Ex Machina' Dance Matches Up Perfectly To Any Song -- Watch

Ex Machina

“Ex Machina”


Alex Garland’s “Ex Machina” garnered widespread critical acclaim and won a slew of awards, including the Oscar for Best Visual Effects, but there’s one scene in particular that took the Internet by storm: Oscar Isaac’s character Nathan dancing to Oliver Cheatham’s “Get Down Saturday Night” with his “girlfriend” Kyoko (Sonoya Mizuno). Spurred by Isaac’s growing celebrity, the scene was almost a ready-made meme for people to share with ease, but did you know that the dance basically matches up to any pop song? Twitter user @oscardances has mashed up Isaac’s “Ex Machina” dance with songs like Carly Rae Jepson’s “Boy Problems” to Smash Mouth’s “I’m a Believer” to The Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive.” Watch the video for Isaac’s dance soundtracked to The Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” above.

Abram’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and in David Simon’s miniseries “Show Me A Hero,” for which he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Film.
