The East Hollywood dive bar hasn’t seen moves like this in a while

Legendary East Hollywood dive bar Jumbo’s Clown Room is known for being the kind of place where locals hang out, gawking travelers stop in for a wide-eyed drink, and non-nude dancers do just about whatever they want up on the small stage. Over the weekend, that involved one particular dancer getting down to some hair metal while casually eating a slice of pizza.

In a video that is quickly going viral across the internet, dancer and model Lilly Moon can be seen slowly working the Jumbo’s stage to Metallica’s Enter Sandman. Except, well, the whole thing is really less of a performance on its own, and more of an excuse to take bites off of a really big slice of pizza. At one point Moon just sits down against the pole to enjoy the pizza, a move that actually nets her even more cash for its awesomeness. Moon later confirmed the slice was a plain cheese, and came from Garage Pizza not far away.

The Twitter video has already racked up nearly 120,000 likes and 42,000 retweets in under a day. The whole thing is available to view below, but take note: While there is no nudity at all, it could be considered a bit NSFW:

While the move to eat pizza on stage is certainly an unusual one, just about anything is possible over at Jumbo’s Clown Room. The iconic bar has been in steady operation since 1970 — and began allowing dancers in 1982 — and remains family-owned to this day. Along the way countless television shows and music videos have been shot inside, and Courtney Love was herself famously a dancer there in the 1990s.
