Yes, you've seen at least a hundred hilarious and crazy-creative viral wedding dance videos, but this one is pretty darn awesome too.

Groom Jared Dauenhauer and his mom, Mary, decided to do a fun mother-son dance for his July 5 wedding that lasted nearly four minutes and included amazing dance moves, sunglasses and, yes, the Stanky Leg.

Living in different states, Jared and Mary impressively choreographed the entire routine on FaceTime.

“We just tried to have fun with it," Jared told a local news station. “So it was kind of some of the stuff we've seen in other wedding videos. And the rest of it was like, 'How can I get my mom to try to dance hip hop?'"

Jared's wife, AlLee, was in on the secret too. “I just liked that it was a surprise that people didn't know it was coming, also I think the 'Stanky Leg' part his mom kept calling it the 'Janky Leg,'" she said.

We decided to have two mother-son dances: one with his mom and one with his stepmother. Our question is, which mom should he dance with first?
