Now Kanye West is breaking the Internet with his avant-garde robot dance

Kanye’s all about innovation, from his boundary-pushing beats to his fashion lines to his plan to make Paul McCartney a rap star. Lately he’s been exploring movement a lot, especially a signature crouch that’s already being copied by some of the legion of rappers working in his wake. 

This weekend he performed a couple shows at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, where he premiered the Steve McQueen-directed video for “All Day” and also unveiled what seems to be a highly experimental version of the classic dance move The Robot.

Predictably, people are already turning it into a meme by dropping different music over it.

Expect at least several hundred more Kanye Doing the Robot memes before the trend becomes completely washed, which will probably happen sometime this evening.
