Before the advent of YouTube, how did people derive any joy or entertainment? It’s difficult to fathom, really.
Arguably, the site’s best asset lies in the vast quantity of dancing animal videos available, as there is something so irresistible about watching an animal break it down.
After scouring the internet for the best videos, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5. Enjoy – we have no doubt you will:
1. Merengue-dancing Golden Retriever: This incredibly talented dog — the inspiration for this list — hit the media circuit (even appearing on Letterman) after this video went viral. It is, without doubt, the most entertaining animal video we’ve ever seen.
2. Dancing Panda grinding to the ‘Bed Intruder’ song: What’s more fun than watching Antoine Dodson sing the ‘Bed Intruder’ song? Watching this panda shimmy and sway to it.
3. Frostie The Cockatoo dancing to Shake Your Tail Feather: If the ‘Bed Intruder’ song wasn’t still so popular, this cockatoo might command the #2 spot, since he has obviously worked very hard on his (own) choreography and performs it with the greatest of skill:
4. Bear grinding with a tree: Who knew bears could get so low? This bear was caught in the act trying to put the moves on this unsuspecting tree:
5. Carolyn Scott and Rookie: Before the merengue-dancing golden, there was the other, super-talented dancing golden, Rookie (proving that, beyond doubt, goldens are the best).
