USO has a Latin Dance Street Party. And they pair off two guys and two girls with each other.
The video is in ultra HD if anyone cares to use Windows Magnifier to see the dancers better.
Current estimate is $4.7M for the weekend, which at 3,350 screens would make it the worst opening on that many screens for a theatrical only release in the history of cinema. A complete write-off for Universal.Just saw BROS. It is freaking amazing. Run, don’t walk to see it.

Doesn’t matter. It’s still a landmark event and the movie is freaking wonderful. Those skipping it are missing out.Run indeed, this may not be in theaters for long.
"The biggest disappointment this weekend came from Universal’s Judd Apatow-produced Bros. The film had a lot going for it, being touted as the first major studio LGBTQ rom-com and winning over both critics (91% on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences (A CinemaScore) alike. Unfortunately, hardly anyone showed up, with the Billy Eichner-starring film grossing just $4.8 million from 3,350 screens. This is a worse debut than the summer’s sole studio live action comedy Easter Sunday, which had a $5.4 million opening and went on to gross just $13 million. Bros could do better when it’s all said and done with good word of mouth, but it's a dismal opening not just for the $22 million film but for the comedy genre as a whole, which is beginning to look like an endangered species. 10+ years ago, this likely could have done a mid to high teens opening a la director Nicholas Stoller’s earlier films Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, which both went on to gross $60+ million domestically. Nowadays, comedies are a much tougher sell without major stars and wall to wall special effects in the mix."

COVID and streaming has changed people's habits, and going to a theater is just becoming less of thing unless it's an "event" movie like Top Gun. I know I'm far more likely to see a Star Wars or Marvel movie in the theater over a rom com.
It's a shame because so many LGBT movies are low budget affairs, and these stories should be part of the mainstream. However, I get that this just isn't the type of movie that gets people out of their homes at the moment.
Eichner told The Straights to stay home. His entire PR tour was extremely antagonistic.Straight people can’t sit through ONE extremely well made, hysterical gay rom com????
I don’t find any evidence anywhere that Eichner told straight people to stay home. And also, if you had seen this film, you would know that it is filled with people of various races. Whatever. It’s awesome and I’m seeing it again tonight.Eichner told The Straights to stay home. His entire PR tour was extremely antagonistic.
I'm also seeing a lot of social buzz that progressives won't see the movie because it's too cis and too white.
I made no claim regarding the quality of the movie, only the quality of the marketing campaign.I don’t find any evidence anywhere that Eichner told straight people to stay home.

You said he told straight people to stay home and I can’t find anything anywhere on the internet that supports this claim. He did blame straight people not coming for the low box office, but that’s something entirely different. Also being antagonistic is basically his brand. Did you ever see an episode of Billy on the Street where he runs around NYC screaming at people? That was funny enough to carry it through 5 seasons. That’s basically his character in this movie as well and it is more than funny enough to carry the two hour running time.I made no claim regarding the quality of the movie, only the quality of the marketing campaign.
