Do the #PenguinShake
Thanksgiving is only two weeks away! And that means we’ve all got a certain bird on the brain: the penguin. (Wut?!) That’s right, this year Mr. Turkey will have to share the spotlight with his arctic amigo—because Penguins of Madagascar is hitting theaters. You may be thinking: Sure, sure, that’s great, but what does it have to do with dance? Everything, my friends, for there’s a new dance in town and it’s called the #PenguinShake.
In honor of the movie’s upcoming release, the folks at Dream Works want to create the longest music video in the world. (Trying to rival Pharrell Williams 24-hour music video to “Happy,” are we?) Their song of choice? Pitbull’s hit single “Celebrate.” And, to keep up with the recent music-video trend of hiring world-class choreographers, they needed to find someone pretty flippin’ awesome…
…tWitch to the rescue!
—with his uncanny ability to make super silly look super cool—was a natural choice for the job. And his #PenguinShake does not disappoint. Check out the tutorial below!
All you’ve gotta do to join the longest music video in the world is 1) learn the #penguinshake, 2) film yourself performing it, 3) upload the video to Instagram with #penguinshake and 4) check the #penguinshake website 24–48 hours after uploading to see yourself in the video.
Everyone who’s anyone is doing it, including animator-extraordinaire Marquese Scott:
Get (penguin) shakin’!
