A tango performed by 72 y/o former comedian Tommy Chong, whose elegant seriousness at least evokes the spirit of true tango.  (As seen on Dancing with the Stars, on ABC network, October, 2014.)

In the same program, another couple also purported to do the tango, but the results were a cruel joke, an insult to anyone knowing anything about tango, yet this is what passes—to great acclaim—in the US and many parts of the world for real tango. The show’s producers should be simply ashamed at their pathetic ignorance, not to mention that of the “artists” involved.
