Weekend Dance Party

One Direction, Conor Maynard & Beyonce’s Snuggie Kid

It’s been a long time since we had a dance party on the STACKS, but the brand new One Direction video is out, and I just can’t contain myself!

Here are 3 videos that you should watch this weekend if you want to dance like crazy. (And who doesn’t?)

Conor Maynard “Turn Around” featuring Ne-Yo
You might as well know I’m a complete and total Mayniac. This may be my favorite Conor Maynard video yet. The song is awesome, and the video effects of Conor falling through the air, surfing on top of a moving bus, and floating in a phone booth are amazing. And Ne-Yo’s dancing. . . yeah, I love this video! It’s the perfect way to get your dance party started.

Beyoncé “Countdown” (Snuggie Version)
Admit it. I know at least some of you have tried to reenact your favorite videos in your Snuggies. Well, the incredibly talented 16-year-old Ton Do-Nguyen is now famous for doing just that. He reenacted Beyoncé’s “Countdown” video frame by frame including every dance move, facial expression, and even video effects . . . also while wearing a Snuggie. Beyoncé herself posted it on her website under the heading “Brilliant,” and said, “I think he did this video better than I did.”

One Direction “Live While We’re Young”
Joy, joy, joy, joy, joy! From the first frame of Harry waking up in a tent, to Louis jumping off a rope swing into a river, to the lads flipping around in those giant bubble/hamster wheel thingies, to the final frame where Zayn sings the last line and then falls over (with help from Louis), this video is 1D perfection. This song makes you NEED to dance, and I may never stop singing it. “Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun!” PS. If you watch closely, you will see Zayn making a heart sign with his hands, and a very funny expression with his face. Priceless!

If you have just watched these 3 videos and you still want to dance to “Gangnam Style,” then . . . I’m speechless. I still love you, but I just don’t know what to say to you.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you
    know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks

    by accident, while I was browsing for something else, Anyhow I am
    here now and would just like to say kudos for a remarkable post and a all round thrilling
    blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds,
