A few weeks ago, Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux of the M&M Cru released their latest entry in the extremely popular dance battle started by ACDC last April.
Jon M. Chu and Adam Sevani are really getting good at this taunting thing, so we have another teaser video from ACDC that shows the M&M Cru (which includes Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan) a taste of what they have to look forward to in the yet-to-be announced live battle between the two talented dance crews.
You can CLICK HERE to watch the teaser video or you can check it out below:
Here's what Jon Chu has to say about their newest video:
I know we all can't wait to see the live battle, and I'm still hopeful that it'll all go down on an episode on MTV's show America's Best Dance Crew (aka ABDC). Even if that doesn't happen, I'm sure we'll all be tuning in, because I hear that a TV deal is in the works.
"After being depressed about the ACDC's last video and eating ice cream to binge the pain, Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux tried to end it with their last video...but it's not over until there's only ONE winner. And there WILL be a winner.
LIVE. IN PERSON. DETAILS TO COME.
THE BIGGEST ONLINE DANCE BATTLE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND WILL NOW BE THE BIGGEST DANCE BATTLE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, PERIOD.
In the meantime, we'll be training. Stay tuned for more videos...and SUBSCRIBE [http://www.youtube.com/chupictures] SO YOU CAN SEE THEM FIRST!!!

PPS The M&M Cru has their GAYliens...well we have the BROBOTS. More to come from the BROBOTS..."
As if this whole thing hasn't been historical enough, the BIGGEST online dance battle in history is heading to prime time so the two crews can settle this beef once and for all. As Jon says, more details to come.
In the meantime, I'll share some new information I've learned about the battle both in front of and behind the scenes...
IN THE PRESS: M&M vs. ACDC Dance Battle Featured in US Weekly Magazine
The famous YouTube dance battle between the M&M CRU and ACDC has been covered (and even spoofed) by countless entertainment news outlets in the short time that's it's been going on. From Perez Hilton to Access Hollywood to E! television to MTV News, everyone is talking about the phenomena that has taken the world by storm.
Like many entertainment news outlets, Us Weekly Magazine recently posted an article on their website highlighting the latest video from the M&M Cru. They also decided to put the article you see above in the June 30, 2008 issue of their popular magazine.
It talks about the web's biggest hits (as far as online video is concerned). All of the videos in the dance battle have gotten an astounding number of views on YouTube in a very short period of time (more than 10 million to be exact).
New Behind-the-Scenes Dance Battle Videos
M&M Cru's Mandy Jiroux called into Ryan Seacrest's popular L.A. radio show at 102.7 KIIS FM to talk about the dance battle the day after the last video release and below you can listen to her interview. Enjoy!
On the ACDC front...In addition to being invited to dance at Ellen DeGeneres' birthday party, they were also recently invited to perform at Youtube's corporate headquarters for the Discover YouTube Event in San Bruno, California. Below, you can check out some behind the scenes footage from their trip and performance. BOOM!
How the M&M Cru Scored Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan
Fans have been a bit baffled ever since we learned that Channing Tatum and his girlfriend, Jenna Dewan, were members of the M&M Cru instead of the obvious choice of ACDC. I can now say that there's an extremely good reason for how that happened, and it's not as scandalous as people have assumed (there was no kidnapping involved).
Cole Walliser (the director of all of the M&M Cru videos) told me that he's really good friends with Chan and Jenna. Since I'm pretty sure they knew Cole before they ever met Jon, aligning themselves with the M&M Cru actually makes a lot of sense.
I have to say that I was relieved when Cole told me this, because I was thinking of doing a dance battle video myself and now I know just who to ask. ;-D
In addition to that bit of inside scoop, Cole also said that there may just be some video outtakes of Chan and Jenna in Prague. I can't make any promises, but I'll see if we can get ahold of some of them to share with you all.
That's it for now folks, but stay tuned M&M Cru and ACDC fans. Channing Tatum Unwrapped will always have the latest news on this extremely hot dance battle!!!
