Gwyneth Paltrow Does The Robot

11.12.10 7 years ago 12 Comments

Gwyneth Paltrow will guest star as a substitute teacher on next week’s episode of “Glee,” and to prove to the students that she’s “hip” and “with it” — and not, say, a snooty wannabe Brit born of successful Hollywood parents and raised in the lap of luxury on Manhattan’s Upper East Side — she breaks out and sings Cee-Lo’s “Forget You,” because nothing wins over high school kids like taking the swear words out of popular music.

Paltrow sings well enough, but the undeniable highlight of the video is at the 43-second mark, when she breaks out the Robot. It’s fantastically ridiculous. It’s like if Russell Crowe had done the stanky leg in character during A Beautiful Mind. “Guys, she knows the Robot! Let’s listen to what she has to say!”

While I work on a YouTube rip and an animated GIF, watch the video over at EW.
