Nobody's linking to their dance party yet?

Aw man, this is totally getting into my fussy detail zone as I'm trying to make sure everyone is to scale from front to back AND trying to make plausible guesses as the height of dancers compared to each other (i.e., is BMO taller or shorter than pixelized Carlton and by how much?)

Yeah! Groovy! Hey just out of curiosity how are we pronouncing "Gif Dance Party," the right way, or...?

Sorry but GIF DANCE PARTY is only available on desktop -- no mobile/tablet support.

We do the gif dance party every two years, regardless. It's okay.

i really want to make them have eye contact with each other and it is bugging me that the head position is usually not right to make that happen. might be spending too much time playing with this...

I like how everybody kind of staggers for a second as the scene loads, and then they all take off together.

SHAKE. IT. WOO.

In the future we will have a Nobel Prize for the Internet. I feel strongly that Gif Dance Party be among the first nominated.

I am aggrieved that there is no dancing Finn. I had to make due with Jake, Ice King, and a cat.

When you people use a bunch of repeats of the same dancer like that, it looks like it's about 3 seconds from turning into a really interesting Cyriak video.

I hate this. And I love it. Mostly I love it.

This is the natural cultural descendant of fuldans. Bonus video featuring cute Swedish boys.

I foolishly showed my parents this because they came over to visit and while we were all cracking up at how delightful it all is my mom suddenly went very quiet and peered at the screen in a somewhat concerned way.

"Is... Is the heart creature twirling its dick to the beat...?" she whispered.

I wasn't sure, so the three of us looked more closely. Resignedly I silently, solemnly nodded.

Barely a few seconds had gone by when my dad says in WAY too proud a voice, "Hey, I can do that dance, too!"

Reader, I could not close my browser or my ears quickly enough.

Sadly lacking any Japanese women twirling leeks, and the songs sadly don't include any polkas in Finnish.

Of all the weirdnesses of the internet, how a polka performance by a Finnish folk-singing group became the go-to song for people to do leek-twirling dances to still vaguely disturbs me.

Needs more Viking.

You should definitely not spend a lot of time making a field full of hundreds tiny Carltons, and arranging their z-values so they overlap for proper perspective effect, only to be told that the share URL fails for being too long. Hypothetically.

Those dancer gifs have been stockpiled from the Internet, but it looks like they're using this for some sort of business. Is that entirely legal? I mean if some random person makes a gif of an Animaniac character twerking, and I pay them to put me in a video with the twerking Animaniac, does some of that money legally need to go to A) Warner Brothers, B) guy that made Yakko gif, C) WB and gif guy, or D) neither.

I really wish the gifs on this were sourced, as I know a few of these specifically are jacked from some talented people on Something Awful (particularly the fat Spiderman and the frog/kakapo gif they're using to advertise their real-life installation) and I'd bet the vast majority of them are similarly jacked from elsewhere.

Fruit Party!
posted by twoporedomain at 10:51 AM on November 4, 2015


I recall when this came up before, the Dance Party had an email where you could send gifs to be considered for inclusion. And I recall they never used any of mine, like this and this and this and this and this (yes, stolen from an animated QC comic) and this (okay they have other dancing skeletons) and especially this and these.

Yes, I have way too many animated gifs.
