Ten @ 10: Food so good they have to dance

DanceEntertainmentWeddingsHuman InterestHugh JackmanMichael JacksonAlfonso Ribeiro

Maybe because it’s officially Spring. Maybe it’s because this is the season of proms, graduations, weddings and lots of dancing. Maybe it’s because we like to dance while we cook (yes, it can be done though we wouldn’t suggest finely mincing onions at the same time).

Maybe it’s because we’ve always laughed at some of the great dancing food commercials, whether it’s movie theater dancing popcorn (“Let’s go out to the lobby…”) or Will Vinton’s Claymation dancing raisins for California Raisins. Or maybe it's because we just enjoy these people dancing in food commercials. Here are just ten of our favorites:
