Kevin Bacon Bribes D.J.’s Not to Play ‘Footloose’ at Weddings

Last night on Conan, Kevin Bacon expressed his contempt for hearing "Footloose" at weddings. He'd rather defer the spotlight to the bride, and thus bribes D.J.'s not to play the film's theme song, which usually results in a crowd of people asking him to reprise his fancy footwork. He also indulged us with a quick air-guitar performance. Watch the video straight ahead.
