Cockatoo

If you’ve got any kind of finger on the pulse of pop culture, you’ve seen Snowball’s youtube channel. This sassy little parrot has made a career out of rocking out to the Backstreet Boys like it’s 1999. Check him out:

My Dog Spot

Ok, so it’s not my dog. And it’s name is actually Stuart, but let’s not split hairs! This little fella has the salsa style down pat and errbody knows it.

Gorillas

Little known fake-fact: B-boying started in the Congo. Mighty Joe Young was not-actually the forefather of the dance! But really, here’s one of his descendants making us humans look bad:

Cats

To the especially hopeless: let this be a lesson. There’s nothing a catchy jingle and some clever editing can’t fix.

The Superb Bird of Paradise

Last time I tried to puff my head out and hop around a lady, it didn’t go so well. Now it all makes sense:

Penguins

Didn’t you know? Happy Feet was actually a documentary. Although you’d never guess it from the distinct lack of Morgan Freeman voiceover.

Elephants

And no, I’m not referring to the big drunk guy that steps on my toes and spills my drink at a Rihanna concert; I’m talking literal elephants. Just keep your martini close.

Cobras

So you say you’ve got two left feet? Poppycock! Says the charmed serpent. Evolution may not have been kind to nature’s perpetual less-thans, but no one can deny this swag:

Squirrels

They may be skittish, but these little creatures sure know how to bust a move. But of course, it helps when you’re sexy and you know it.

Blue Footed Booby

Sure, they’re not the prettiest birds on the planet, but their colorful feet alone drive the opposite sex cuckoo. Because – duh – gettin’ lucky is all about showing off your best parts.

Iconic Dance Moments You Know You’ve Tried To Recreate

Certain pop culture moments just stay with you after you’ve seen them. They’re not necessarily the best scenes from movies or television or music videos, but for whatever reason they’ve stuck with you over the years. Any of these scenes might’ve been part of your childhood experience or remind you of a certain point in your life. Maybe you’ve watched them over and over… maybe you and your friends tried to reenact them. (If you haven’t tried to recreate at least one of these moments then you probably at least wish you had.)

These are some of my iconic pop culture dance moments. If you’re near my age, you’ve probably done at least one of the things on this list.

Five Commercials With Incredible Dance Moves

While commercials can be an annoyance when interrupting our favorite shows or music videos, they also often charm us with their catchy tunes and funny set-ups. As Mad Men teaches, advertising has long informed culture whether we like it or not, but these five commercials have such great dance moves, we certainly don’t mind!

#5 Microsoft Surface

 

 

In 2012, Microsoft debuted their new campaign for their tablet with this flawlessly choreographed, step dancing influenced ad. While it had leaked on Youtube, it made its grand debut during an episode of Dancing With The Stars, unsurprisingly. The ad features many notable dancers pulling their best moves, including head spinning and some out of this world flips. The incorporation of the product itself into the routine is so seamless and innovative that you almost forget you’re watching a commercial!

 

#4 Ipod Silhouette Commercials

Apple’s iconic campaign from the early 2000’s defined Apple products with unique color schemes, fly music, and extremely hip dancing. Not every ad featured daring movement such as the screen grabs above, but they all are infused with an exuberant groove that was so powerful it captivated the early Millennium generation.

 

#3 Target Dorm Commercial

 

 

This 2008 ad features two new dorm-mates meeting for the first time, and designing their new living space together by way of a good-natured Step Up influenced dance-off. The two really do create the perfect dorm room from any college girl’s dreams, and pull some amazing stunts while doing it.

 

#2 Gap Khaki commercial

 

 

 

In the optimistic times of the late 1990s, swing music and fashion were just starting to make a comeback in a big way. Gap solidified this trend by their energetic, bouncy, and boundlessly gleeful commercial from 1998, where professional swing dancers spun, kicked, and triple-stepped their way into advertising history.

 

#1 Pepsi Generation Michael Jackson

 

 

Going back even further in time to the 1980s, at the zenith of Michael Jackson’s power, we see an adorable group of children perfectly imitating Jackson’s signature moves to the tune of Billie Jean. This ad has got everything: the shoes, the sparkling glove, and that unforgettable moonwalk. Pepsi has always used pop stars to create exciting ads, and this classic is no exception. When Michael sings “You’re a whole new generation,” to the children and the audience, it’s hard not to feel a touch of nostalgia.

Puppies Dancing (because sometimes, we all need to see some puppies dancing)

In honor of this week’s puppy bowl, here is the best collection of puppies dancing ever compiled on the internet. Get ready to say “Awww,” and remember, it’s never too late to teach an old dog a new trick!

This puppy has some great stage presence!

This video is so good, it might be a human dressed up as a dog:

This dog made it to the pros. Skip to 2:43 to get right to the action:

And of course, things wouldn’t be complete unless we include a puppy moonwalking:

Okay we threw in this one too, because honestly, we just can’t stop. Warning, there may be some “tighty wighties” in this video. But give him a break, he’s foreign.

We can’t stop. We may have a problem. But your co workers are starting to wonder what you’re doing over there giggling and you have to get back to work. So here it is, la finale:
