Lip Sync Battle has become an internet sensation and the most recent episode features former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson performing a spirited rendition of Salt 'n' Pepa's hit song "Push It."

While Tyson does not seem to be extremely familiar with the lyrics, he makes up for it with lots and lots of energy, flailing around in an oversized leather jacket reminiscent of the ones favored by the original artists back when the song came out.

The performance goes fairly well while Tyson is flanked by backup dancers and co-host and former Swimsuit Issue cover girl Chrissy Teigen, but once the boxer hits the ground, things get very weird.

Watching Mike Tyson dance in leather leggings can now be removed from your bucket list.

Tyson also performed an equally spastic rendition of The Rolling Stones "Satisfaction" but fell to actor and former NFL player Terry Crews, who sang Vanessa Carlton's "White Houses" and "Sucker MC's" by Run-DMC.
