A friend just sent me a YouTube link. As always, I just opened it without asking her anything. What I found there was a challenge between ACDC (Adam/Chu Dance Crew) and M&M (Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux).
At the beginning it was just for “fun”, but now is an extremely big thing, where so many famous people is dancing too to compete against the others. It was suppose to be The Biggest Online Dance Battle, but now is bigger than that.

Both crews are allowed to do whatever they want, however they want. Jon and Adam name their crew the ACDC (Adam/Chu Dance Crew). They release their first battle video.

There is an ONLINE frenzy on the ChuPictures YouTube page where the fans have gathered for the live release of the battle video. Chu’s YouTube triples its views in twenty minutes before the video has even been uploaded. Technical difficulties lead to the delay of the video release for 1 hour. Frenzy only gets bigger.

Besides all this challenge, everything you purchase of ACDC stuff will proceeds to a great charity, Invisible Children. In other post I will talk about this charity.
This is one of the last video ACDC uploaded to their channel. Is a live presentation at the Kid Choice Awards 2008 by Nickelodeon. The ironic part of all this, is Miley and Mandy actually presented ACDC performance.
