Most people will recognize the dance from Dirty Dancing, but we know you have not seen it like this before. @Pandamoanimum, a content creator known for her playful remixes, crafted a remix of this scene that will have viewers laughing out loud.
Debuting on August 21, 1987, Dirty Dancing is still considered a classic 35 years later. The movie stars a light-footed Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle and charismatic Jennifer Grey as Frances “Baby” Houseman.
This coming-of-age movie opens with Baby seeking one last summer of fun before she heads to the Peace Corps. That is how she meets dance instructor Johnny, and Baby decides to help him perform one last big dance.
Even 35 years later, this well-choreographed dance, the final scene in Dirty Dancing, is immediately recognizable. But creator @Pandamoanimum decided to remix this ending with a new, equally nostalgic twist.
No, this was not another song from the annals of musical movies. Nor was this an 80s classic. Instead, this artful creator replaced the music from Dirty Dancing with the intro from the Muppet Show.
For those of you who are raising your eyebrows at that, you are not alone. We felt the same way when we found out about this viral video, but the 5.7 million views (and counting) speak for themselves.
Words defy just how perfect the union of these disparate media is. You have to watch it yourself. We guarantee it will be one of the best 64 seconds you will spend watching something today.
