When Frozen Meets "Thriller"
OK, I have a confession to make: I haven’t seen Frozen yet.
I know! I KNOW. It’s amazing, it’s incredible, it’s the best thing ever. I need to get on it. (Does it count that I’ve been playing “Let It Go” on repeat for the last six months? No?)
Here’s the thing: Even though I haven’t actually seen the film, I’m still unhealthily obsessed with it. And that’s partly because it seems to have taken over the entire world. This movie came out in November, and yet people are still having all kinds of fun cooking up their own Frozen riffs. (Need I even get into the bajillions of “Let It Go” covers out there? I’ll spare you. Actually, no—I’ll just direct you to the most amazing one.)
What’s the latest Frozen ridiculousness? It’s a little off the beaten path—and a lot awesome. Thanks to “character mods” (which allow people around the internets to digitally re-create their favorite animated characters) and the animation program MikuMikuDance, a bunch of inspired Frozen dance videos have hit YouTube recently.
Want to see the Frozen-ites doing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance? Your wish has been granted:
How about singing the Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody”? Eh?
There’s also Elsa doing—heaven help us—the Macarena:
It’s all totally weird and yet somehow totally great. It’s a trend that, in other words, is perfect for a Friday afternoon. Enjoy!
