Bear with me, here, because this is not a dance video, per se.
(But in a way it TOTALLY IS and it is fantastic and I love it and you should watch it about 100 times right now.)
Did you know that chickens have the strange ability to keep their heads stable, no matter what their bodies are doing? Apparently that allows them to maintain a consistent field of vision, which helps them better detect the movement of the tiny little bugs they like to eat.
Of course, some humans have also mastered this skill...
...which, yes, is pretty cool. But for some reason it's cooler when chickens do it. Which is why this Mercedes-Benz commercial (tagline: "Stability at all times") is so genius.
Enjoy, and happy Friday, everyone!
On Saturday morning, Russell Horning—aka 15-year-old Instagram king @i_got_barzz—was already kind of famous. His admittedly bad but weirdly mesmerizing dance videos had earned him shoutouts from the likes of Rihanna (and dance tributes from the likes of Josh Killacky).
But by Sunday morning? By Sunday morning, Russell Got Barzz had reached an entirely different level of memedom. Because Katy Perry tapped the teen—signature backpack and all—to perform "Swish Swish" with her on "Saturday Night Live." And the internet lost its darn mind.
If, like me, you've ever wondered (and wondered) how that stunning opening scene in La La Land came together, do we have a treat for you.
Fashion looks better in motion—that's why runways exist. But when does fashion look REALLY amazing? In dancey motion. And exhibit #69372 in the case for the inescapable connection between dance and fashion is this new video from Harper's Bazaar, featuring our favorite dancer/model/rock star, Larsen Thompson.
But when you're the only male ballet student at your studio, fighting dumb stereotypes about ballet being for girls, it's easy to feel alone. That's what makes this video featuring Gabriel Romero, an 11-year-old ballet student at Philadelphia Dance Center, especially meaningful.
