Man Perfectly Recreates Sia’s “Chandelier” Video After Losing Fantasy Football Bet: Watch Now!

Party boys, don’t get hurt! When Chuck Jose lost a bet from his fantasy football league, he took his punishment very seriously. He went on Amazon, bought a nude leotard and blonde wig and picked up nude hosiery from his local supermarket. He then spent four to five hours filming a recreation of Sia’s now-famous “Chandelier” music video. 

The best part of the video: Jose’s practically identical moves and serious demeanor. In the 3-minute and 50-second clip, he never breaks character once, leaping from room to room, copying the moves of Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler, who appeared in the original. 

“I think I was enjoying the fact that I love the buddies on my fantasy football team so much that I was willing to endure wearing the tight hosiery and leotard,” the San Francisco native explained in another YouTube video once his clip received more than one million views. “I actually got really lightheaded a few times and almost passed out.”

Many viewers have questioned whether or not the bet was real, noting that Jose seemed to like recreating the dance a little too much. 

“Of course it was real!” he said. “The League I’m in is appropriately titled the ‘League of Humiliation.’ Basically, the loser of the matchup will have to succumb to humiliation from a pre-determined list.”

Other punishments have included the defeated member having to run 100 meters in high heels and another where the loser had to draft an erotic fan fiction of themselves, One Direction, and a single word of the winner’s choosing. 

Jose claims rehearsals took “no time at all,” joking, “apparently I’m a natural!”
