Football Players Discover Their Coach Toured With M.C. Hammer, Make Him Do ‘Hammer Time’ Dance
A college football team got a surprise when they convinced one of their coaches to break out some moves from his days touring with M.C. Hammer.
San Jose State running backs coach Alonzo Carter was once M.C. Hammer's lead dancer and head choreographer for the musician's famous "Hammer Time" dance. According to Sports Illustrated, Carter starred in and trained the dancers for Hammer's "U Can’t Touch This" music video.
