America Shocked by Its Own Prudery

Nothing highlights cultural differences better than popular culture. Consider, for example, Bailando por un Sueño, the Latin American version of Dancing with the Stars. In the Argentinian version of the program, the show actually hosted a striptease-themed competition among participants.

This clip, featuring Silvina Escudero and Nicolas Scillama is making the rounds thanks to Gawker, and the gasps in response are typically American.

Even Gawker, the masters of the put-down, are left nearly speechless. N00bs. If you think this is intense, you should try watching a Brazilian soap.
