The music video for “Dancing (Again!)” by England’s Daniel Pearce, a.k.a. Eats Everything, has almost as much going for it as the song itself. But at some point you’ve got to put a cap on your tally, so for convenience’s sake, we’ve narrowed our appreciation of it down to simply the five most essential qualities.
1. Living the Dream
The clip basically consists of two young ladies letting loose at night in a Costco-esque big-box store, as they proceed to whatever they damn well please all throughout the establishment. And let’s face it, who among us hasn’t dreamed of doing that when were stuck in the muck of some drudgery-laden, dead-end job?
2. The Star Wars Factor
Who hasn’t had the slightest propensity toward geeking out Star Wars style? Your humble correspondent here feels no shame about having owned a lovely light saber as an adolescent, and it’s still a thrill to see these gals waving those futuristic foils about.
3. Rave On
You’ve got to give it up for anybody who’s willing to give a good-hearted nod to rave culture, even (or especially) in the goofiest manner possible. So it’s hard to suppress a smile when the glowsticks get pulled out here.
4. The CosPlay Connection
If you can’t get a jolt out of seeing two grown women parading around in an empty store at night sporting full-on Batman and Robin costumes, then please contact your nearest undertaker, or have your loved ones do so for you.
5. Sisters Sticking it to The Man
In addition to all of the aforementioned assets, this video also offers the simple joy of watching two young women gleefully defying authority, in the most imaginative and ingratiating ways possible. Who could ever hate on that?
