So all-consuming was yesterday's obsession with Lindsay Lohan's peek-a-boo nipple shot from the General Motors Ten celebrity fashion show that Jeremy Piven's incredible breakdancing performance was almost lost to history. Seeing a still of The Piv getting down (when is that guy finally going to shake his crippling shyness in the spotlight?) over at Open All Night made us curious about what the rest of his routine looked like, leading us to the wire for this incredible sequence of photographs capturing the kinetic poetry of his worm in its appropriate glory. We imagine that the apparent unavailability of a dirty sheet of cardboard (and perhaps one too few preparatory vodka tonics) prevented Piven from capping his dance with his legendary headspins, but considering the potential follicular setbacks such a move might inflict, perhaps that's for the best.
