This stop motion video shows you can dance without moving


Ryan Higa is a true OG YouTuber: he started uploading videos in 2006, and has become one of the site’s first popular personalities. He’s been active since then, and over the years he’s made videos on a variety of topics, and they all have one thing in common: if they involve dancing in any way, Higa isn’t very. good at it. I’m not the one who denigrates him, because it’s something he himself admits in his latest video: “If you’ve been watching this channel for long enough, or if you know me personally in real life, you I probably know by now that one of my biggest weaknesses in life is that, well… I can’t dance.

What he decided to do, instead of just learning to dance like any of us would, is that he found a way to dance without moving: the stop-motion video ( via Boing boing). With the help of a few assistants in black full suits, Higa, without moving a muscle, gets into position, a photo is taken, then he is moved, and so on, all to give the impression that he is pull off some fairly smooth movements. Stop-motion also gives Higa the power to manipulate his environment, his stomach, and the laws of physics in ways that aren’t super possible in reality.

He also uploaded a 14-minute behind-the-scenes video if you’d like to learn more about what went into the creation of his actual dance workaround:
