Heavy Metal Penguin is all “SHHHHHHHHH…”
Salsa Dog is all, “GRRRRRR.”
Scatman Crothers is all, “Boogidyboogodybooscubodatdiddilyditdowoppopshunateebop…”
And with that, Godsauce wins the “Words With Friends” World Championship.
Christmas Tree Cat is all “WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINK”
Yogurt Cup Squirrel is all “mffmffmmmmubmmbmm?”
Steve Winwood is all “She’s pretty. Racism is evil. PLAGIARIST COMMENT!!! Abortion joke, friend. I don’t give a care. ?????????”
That’s just how I roll.
That’s just how I troll. – Da Cake Eatur
This video makes me very happy. Mission accomplished.
Agreedo. Gonna upvote everyone comments in celebration! Every. Single. Comment.
There will be upvotes!
This video makes me very sad. These people, just having fun, just karaoke-ing it up, now made laughingstocks on the internet because of poor wig choices, outdated clothes, bad dance moves and the inherently humiliating nature of karaoke in general.
It’s that kind of sad snowy day. Downergum for totes.
Are those spandex pants? And if so, did they start falling down? I didn’t know that could happen with something so tight.
And normally I’d feel like, “Oh how sad and/or annoying that they’re so lacking in self-awareness and we’re all laughing at them,” but I actually found her endearing and fun. Loved her moves around :32 seconds
I think she knew she was being ridiculous but she was having so much fun she didn’t care!
We should all be so lucky to have SO MUCH FUN.
shit. that’s gonna get 3,000,000 hits.
they’re gonna take away my house.
It took me a while to get this, but it was worth the wait.
I’m still waiting.
I’ll have what she’s having
Naw, She is much better than I am at dancing.
Unfortunately, later in the show, she got the axe. (Get it? You get it.)
More like axed to leave! HIYOOOOO!
Sorry for the vague Scatman Crothers/The Shining reference. Sometimes comments are a reference inside a reference inside a reference and I don’t even know where I am anymore. As a wise man once said, “I change my mind so much I can’t even trust it/ My mind change me so much I can’t even trust myself”. On with the comments.
no, no apologies. I love this. the fact that Scatman Crothers has been dead for 25 years, and probably none of us have thought about him in about that long. but suddenly we’re acting like he sang the song that girl is dancing too.
this is the perfect storm of random shit to make me laugh a lot
Videogum is nothing if not a playground for obscure references. We welcome all around here.
My jaw did NOT drop when i read your first comment (axe?), then I read DirtySpaceNews’ reply and was like, “Oh, like ‘ASKed’?” but I reread your comment and was like, “Hunh. Well what’s the next comment say?”
THEN. I read your explanation, and my look of mild confusion INSTANTLY turned into ecstatic adoration for how fucking much of a stretch your comment was and how entertaining it is to me. I LOVE SCATMAN CROTHERS in the Shining and I get SO SAD when he dies. I saw a Sunday matinee of The Shining about three years ago just to see it in a theatre, and it was even more sad on the big screen.
Anyway, tiredandwired, upvotes and respect are yours.
Whoa, Scatman Crouthers was in the ‘Shining’?! Consider my mind blown.
Also, I like what the wise man once said, sounds like the story of my life, thus far.
Well did she make it through???!?!1?
I’ve picked up all the lovers I’ve ever had with that dance. I am also a virgin.
This dance should be taught to teenagers and used to promote abstinence-only sex ed.
I’m a member of the same dance crew as her. Oh what’s the name?
League of Slammin Dancers.
I myself am in the League of Dancin’ Slammers.
You guys, I can just barely remember Bill Clinton but I remember THESE THINGS.
League of Smagin Dancers?
Dancers Smang League?
Any pervert who googles “fattie” plus “scat” today is gonna be so disappointed.
Yeah, I regretted my search for “best scat” immediately.
what’s the boss gonna say about that?
It was really brave of her to go with a jazz song like that.
Also: I think this video should be called, “Scatman and Throbbin’.”
Someone stole my copy of D-Quon’s Dance Grooves
Also her name is Happiness? Is that her birth name? If so her parents nailed it
And thus began my Pursuit of Happiness
You know what they say, dance like there isn’t a tv audience of several million watching.
(Susan Boyle joke, or something)
That’s your reaction.
Sure, at first I was all…
But then I was all…
Do you have any more pictures of her?
Here ya go
I have pics of Cheryl Cole
Bandler Ching is wondering if more makeup can fit on her face.
my reaction is :33-:35 actually. if someone could get on a .gif of that.
Still better than Black Swan.
Also Lost sucked. #catharsis
And people don’t understand why I love gifs so much.
This is totally going to be my new move.
Came for the GIFparty. Sorely disappointed that this is it.
That dance move is called “The Lorry”.
Happiness: Based on the novel Scat by Scatman
this is gonna become the dance craze we deserve AMIRIGHT?
Are we sure that isn’t Eric Wareheim?
BEAT ME BY 4 MINUTES
I knew I looked good dancing in the mirror at home, but…wow. I had no idea how awesome it would look on stage.
I CAN’T with the Scatman John…
I’d like her to dance to tubthumping in the next round in the off chance that it could make me hate that song a little less too.
This reminded me of reading Pynchon: is it some kind of brilliance, or is it a random, senseless, purposefully obscure and empty mess? Then I saw how much fun she was having at no one’s expense and realized it had nothing to do with Pynchon.
Breeeeee Bop ap Dodapp NOPE
Someone help her! She’s have a seizure!
Having no dance background (save for 2 ill-advised years in show choir – back row, baby!) I think I can say with total honesty that This really IS my audition (or would be).
Having said that, is it just me or does it look slightly choreographed? Way to use the whole stage, girly.
I was wondering that, too… spontaneously improvised? Or choreographed?
Initial thought – “She is the Physical Embodiment of Scatting” (in the freeform jazz sense)
Followed by, “Hahahaha Scat, she’s scatting all over that stage, all right, lol”
Followed by, “My girlfriend is the best!”
Finally Finished with, “Our routine next year is going to be amazing”
hey. Asperger’s is no laughing matter.
Why is everyone laughing at this poor lady and not the plastic-faced losers sitting at the judges table? I’m certain at least one of them DANCES FOR A LIVING.
I think Happiness learned all her great scatmoves from a giant green inflatable waver ballon, just like Dee.
this should be the new keds ad
How badly does everyone want to be best friends with this lady?
No joke, imagine how much fun she would be to go out dancing with? And not because I think shes terrible but because she just doesn’t give a fuck, and those kind of peeps are the best.
Hot damn! Between Dawson and this, I think all we need is the definitive cute kitten gif and we’re already good for all of 2011! (GIFs of this entire performance have already been made, right?)
I wanted to join the GIF party above but I didn’t want to zonk out anyone’s browser, so I’m posting my dancing gif down here!
btw, the Ghost World dvd is awesome just for the fact that this whole dance performance can be watched in the special features.
These moves + soundtrack of Britney Spears’ “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” techno remix = my 21st birthday celebration this weekend.
After seeing only two clips of this show, I’m convinced that the contestants’ goal is to somehow break the stage.
Olive grew up fast!
I’m pretty sure this is where she got some of her moves too…
This seriously made me feel so good inside. I just wanted to climb up on that stage with her and roll around myself.
THIS is what I get for not being able to log on yesterday (my birthday): my gift from Gabe was right here, and I missed it. I love dance, and Happiness loves dance, and I love Happiness. Thank you, Gabe. Best birthday.
