        I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but I noticed that in the film they did a head shake certainly in the beginning on the scene that the 2 dancers in the video missed out of their imitation of the dance, like I said I don’t know if it was intentional or not but they absolutely smashed it regardless!! Great video guys

                            Lauren and Christopher convinced a whole generation to give up their fear of heights and inspiring them to find a way to have fun while working!

                                                            It's a show-stopper!!!

                                                              "so fast" I somewhere heard they sometimes danced slower and speed it up to time later. that made it quicker to learn and the faster footage hides the dancers not being 101% synced. Do you think hey did that here?

They're literally having a knees up. I can't remember if they mentioned that in the video and I'm too tired to go back though to check. lol
