    If there’s one video the Internet is missing, it’s surely that of Da Coach "prancercising."

    If you can’t imagine legendary NFL hall-of-famer Mike Ditka flailing his arms, dancing around daintily like a horse in the fitness routine turned internet sensation called prancercise, luckily he’s offering the chance for fans to make it a reality – all for a good cause.

    “There was something special about this [prancercise] video that drew me in,” Ditka said in a promotional video. “I mean, over 10 million viewers couldn’t be wrong! Then an idea hit me and I could see it clear as day.”

    Ditka promises if he can raise $100,000 for his charity Gridiron Greats he will prancercise during Super Bowl week in Arizona.

    “Gridiron Greats is a charity close to my heart,” Ditka said. “We have helped more than 1,000 retired players and their families get back on their feet. We assist them medically, we help put a roof over their head and we guide them through life after football. We let them know that Gridiron Greats is a team they can count on after their football days are over.”

    He even ups the ainty, saying that if they beat their goal he’ll get his NFL celebrity friends to join in.

    If the mental image of a flock of NFL heavyweights prancercising is too tough to resist, you can donate to the cause at videojuice.com.

    "They wont be as good as me though," Ditka added.
