Le Cochon danseur

Le Cochon Danseur (English: The Dancing Pig) is a silent, 4 minute long, black-and-white burlesque film released in 1907 by French company Pathé,[1] apparently based on a Vaudeville act.[1] In the film, a giant anthropomorphic pig, dressed in fancy clothes, dances with a girl, who later embarrasses him by tearing his clothes off. The two start to dance together, then walk into the curtains behind them. A scene is then shown where the pig moves his tongue and eyes around and then baring his teeth.[1]

Legacy[edit]

The film had fallen into obscurity for over a century, but gained more notoriety around 2007 as an Internet meme because of its creepy atmosphere.[2][1]
