Mitt Romney is not a robot, though he does continue to plumb new depths of dad-ish awkwardness.

The video above — h/t McKay Coppins — shows Romney dancing on stage with Alex Boye in Arizona. According to the description, from YouTuber Taegan Elmer, the event was a Young Single Adult regional conference. There’s no mention of the date of the conference, but the video went up Saturday.

And while literally dancing with Alex Boye may be less exciting than figuratively dancing with say, Valdmir Putin, Romney does indeed seem more relaxed and less robot-like than at any point during his campaign (expect for maybe during the 47 percent vid).
