Watch Kanye wobble, Bon Iver dance all nifty in Francis & the Lights' 'Friends' video

Francis Farewell Starlite and Bon Iver prepare to dance.

Francis Farewell Starlite and Bon Iver prepare to dance.

Justin "Bonny Bear" Vernon is many things.

The Eau Claire, Wisconsin, native is the force behind indie-rock heavyweights Bon Iver; he's one of the curatorial czars at the Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival; and he's one of Kanye West's trusted collaborators. 

But did you know he's also a nifty dancer? 

The proof's in the music-video pudding known as "Friends," the latest from New York City pop/R&B group Francis and the Lights. In it, we see a vibed-out Kanye wobble contemplatively and the titular Francis Farewell Starlite dance conceptually around a minimalist stage. 

Then comes the surprise: Vernon, clad in baseball cap and bluejeans, hits the scene and cuts a choreographed rug with Starlite. And goddammit if he's not a nifty dancer! Check it out below. 

"Friends" features vocals from Kayne and Bon Iver. The track was co-written by Rostam Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend. Starlite, whose past collabs include Chance the Rapper and Frank Ocean, co-produced the track alongside Batmanglij, Ariel Rechtshaid, Cashmere Cat, and Benny Blanco.

Bon Iver will perform August 12 at the Eaux Claires fest just outside of downtown Eau Claire — about an hour-and-half east of the Twin Cities. Kanye's Saint Pablo Tour will arrive Oct. 10 at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center.
