Let’s turn the dial back to nineteen hundred and eighty eight for some sweet, sweet R&B. There’s no sentimental attachment with today’s Friday Flashback, this one’s purely for fun and amusement.
Amazing, right? Let’s discuss what you actually just saw there.
First off, you just watched Johnny Kemp absolutely kill it on a Friday night. Judging by the giant rolled up sheet he’s carrying at the beginning of the video, he’s possibly an architect, building planner, or a well organized thief prepping for a big heist. Either way, that can make for a rough day/week. And what do we all want to do after a rough week? We wanna get loose, duh! And boy, does he. I mean, he gets it right from the start of the night:
Check the mirror, we’re lookin’ fly
Round up the posse, jump in my ride
Radio rockin’, a monster jam
Feel the rhythm, pump up the sound
Dude just got paid and he’s ready to tear up the town… with some DANCING! Maybe I’d be dancing too if I remembered what it’s like to get paid every Friday. I only get paid once a month, but coincidentally, the 15th falls on a weekend this month, so you know what? I just got paid! That may have had some influence on today’s content choice. But I digress. Where was I? Oh yes, dancing! The world might be a better place if we could all just cut loose and meet up with our friends on a street corner for some awesome, choreographed dance numbers. And then you can move it to a club to really get down. I think half the moves in Dance Central have been lifted from this video alone, especially these girls at 3:59.
This video teaches important life lessons, so let’s recap, shall we?
- Friday night is a time for fuckin’ gettin’ down!
- Try to get paid on Friday.
- Make sure your partying involves some awesome dancing, preferably a giant choreographed street dance or crazy club dance off.
- Be awesome so people cheer at you when you dance around and point to them.
- Pick up a slutty person to bring home with you.
