It was the dance battle to end all dance battles. Well, by Zoolander standards, that is.

To celebrate the Blu-ray release of the 2001 comedy, PEOPLE has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of the more outrageous and memorable scenes from the film in which Zoolander (Ben Stiller) rival Hansel (Owen Wilson) takes on Evil DJ (a nearly unrecognizable Justin Theroux) in a hilarious dance fight in order to prevent the DJ from spinning the record that will trigger Zoolander’s assassin-mode mind programming.

Judging from the lighthearted and playful vibes both Wilson and Theroux give off in the footage, which includes Wilson showing off some fake punches, high kicks and the Running Man, Theroux doing “the worm” and break-dance spins on the floor, it’s obvious the two actors had a lot of fun learning and performing their dance fight choreography.

Our fingers are crossed for more dance fight battles between the fan-loved characters in their long-awaited sequel, starring/directed by Stiller and written by Theroux.

The film also features Penelope Cruz, Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell, with Kristin Wiig and Justin Bieber also set to make cameo appearances.
