OK, we get it. Dancing with the Stars has All-Stars this season. You wouldn't think that ABC would need to drive home this point by comparing their celebrity dancers to superheroes.
As evidenced by this new Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars promo video, you would be wrong. Keep reading to check out the "super power" of each returning dancer.
Seriously. They have super powers in this promo. It's both insane and kind of awesome -- kind of like Dancing with the Stars
itself, when you think about it. Check out the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
video for yourself here:
That's not even a little bit over-the-top, is it?
Whatever the case, we can't argue that Dancing with the Stars
has come up with a seriously entertaining bit of advertising for their All-Star
season. After all, we have seen -- many times over the past 14 seasons -- the standard variations on celebrities dancing, looking hot and talking. Acting like superheroes is refreshing.
Also Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
now has a bat signal. That's just plain awesome.
What super powers can we assign to each All-Star
after viewing this video?
- Emmitt Smith: The Power of Looking Up with Purpose from a Newspaper
- Pamela Anderson: The Power of Ignoring the Paparazzi for a Higher Purpose

- Sabrina Bryan: The Power of Not Reading a Celebrity Magazine
- Kelly Monaco: The Power of Standing in Front of an Open Window
- Joey Fatone: The Power of Ripping Open His Shirt So That Millions of Stars Can Fly Free into the Galaxy (this is, by the way, my favorite of the super powers)
- Drew Lachey: The Power of Landing on His Feet Next to Garbage Cans
- Melissa Rycroft: The Power of Running in a Miniscule, Sparkly Dress
- Helio Castroneves: The Power of Driving While Looking Up at the Sky, Not at the Road

- Apolo Anton Ohno: The Power of Speed Skating in the Middle of a City Street on Which There Is No Ice
