He's the King of Crunk. He's a Celebrity Apprentice survivor. And last night, at the Wonderland Ballroom in Revere, LIL JON added a new line to his resume: Zumba instructor?

No, seriously: this actually happened. And we've got the Vines to prove it. WHAT?!

Perched behind a massive DJ booth, the man behind such immortal hits as Ying Yang Twins's "Salt Shaker" unveiled a new song, "Work," that is specifically aimed at the Zumba market. How does Zumba-fied Lil Jon differ from in-the-club Lil Jon? Well, unlike past Lil Jon hits, this one is aimed at making the ladies "work it out," "move your bodies to the bass," "arch your back," and . . . OK, it's pretty much exactly the same. YEAH?!

Billed as a "fitness party," it was the kickoff of the "Zumba Nightclub Series," a brief tour that sees Lil Jon hitching his wagon to the international Zumba craze, a reportedly $500 million fitness juggernaut that's already partnered with the likes of Pitbull. OK!!!

Feel free to write your own punchline: we'll get you started with one from former Stuff Magazine editor Scott Kearnan, who tipped us off to this story in the first place.
