Iron Mike Tyson gyrates to Bobby Brown


So Wayne Brady, Mike Tyson and Bobby Brown got together recently and dreamed up a hilarious shot-for-shot remake of Bobby Brown’s "Every Little Step," complete with the trio gyrating and lip syncing to the 90s dance hit.

The video was shot as an exclusive for Funny or Die and has become viral overnight. Iron Mike even steps up and does some solo dancing and singing, and you can just tell from watching it how much fun this video shoot had to be.

Watch Bobby Brown's original video for "Every Little Step"

The former boxer has been basking in the limelight quite a bit lately with his appearance in last year’s "The Hangover."

It’s good to see the champ breaking out from the often negative history that's plagued him within the past 20 years. In the 2008 documentary "Tyson" - written and directed by James Tobeck - you start to get a sense of what this guy has been going through, and it seemed he was really thrown into a world that he couldn’t handle and just snapped.

See timeline of Mike Tyson’s career

But now, at least, it seems that he’s starting to realize he can laugh at himself and have fun, and fans will love him for it. With any luck, maybe it'll even land him a gig as host of "SNL."

    I watched Mike ON Cable TV when it was just getting started on Friday night Fights... This dude would knock you out in the first few seconds of the first round!!! He would fight every month sometimes. You NEVER see that any more. He was awesome!! I forget who he was fighting but he hit this guy so hard with a right hook the mans legs looked like two noodles he went down face first and layed there twitchin... Then had the nerve to say in the after fight ringside interview how the guy wes a great opponate and he hoped he wasnt hurt but he knew he had him when he kept hearing little girl souns coming from him when he hit him with the body shots....WHAT A CLASSIC..

    Mike Tyson was very entertaining to watch as a boxer back in the day, but he was definitely the most overrated boxer of all time. Look back at his fight record, what quality opponent did he actually beat?

    Mike did his time (for a crime he probably didn't commit, research it), his baby died, he was robbed by Don King, yet was the most feared and greatest fighter of our generation and can still laugh at life. Keep hating on him, he has become the better person.

Now look @ them, being able to take those tragedies & turn them into laughter. Men, continue to have your fun. Obvious, that's the problem haters have, they don't know fun.

      A 'second chance' implies that the person in question will change or is open to change.
      Oliver North should be tried for war crimes, Britney just had a nervous breakdown (she's not a criminal) and Rush is a rich greedy jack@ss.

      He was definitely taken advantage of. After his first trainer died, it was all over for him. If he had better people around him he would have been the greatest fighter in history. If anyone disagrees with that then you never saw him fight early on, and you're an idiot.
