Twitter’s new sensation is a dancing street skeleton with different songs placed over the same video to show that he’s always on beat. But … is he? Does this post-mortem Gene Kelly really deliver on every song he dances to? Here’s a ranking of his ten best ones with some in-depth analysis.
10. “Bet On It,” Zac Efron
The nostalgia factor here is high, but no one is better than Zac Efron dancing around a golf course.
9. “Mr. Brightside,” The Killers
How appropriate that a skeleton dance to a song by The Killers? Happy Halloween!
8. “I Want It That Way,” The Backstreet Boys
Points for skipping the obvious choice of going with “Everybody.” These high kicks would put anybody in one of history’s greatest boy bands.
7. “Bring Me to Life,” Evanescence
You will actually weep when the skeleton isn’t brought back to life.
6. “Temperature,” Sean Paul
Anyone dancing to “Temperature” is pretty much a slam dunk, but he really busts out the moves in this one.
5. “Marry the Night,” Lady Gaga
Not since Abbi danced to “Edge of Glory” on Broad City have we seen moves that match Gaga’s excellence.
4. “Where Ya At,” Drake & Future
This alllllmost topped Beyoncé. Watch out, Bey!
3. “Bye Bye Bye,” *NSYNC
Dancing to this number without strings, unlike *NSYNC in their original music video, pushes this one over the edge.
2. American Horror Story Theme
This dance somehow made more plot sense than the show, to be honest.
1. “Hotline Bling,” Drake
Fame costs. And right here is where this little skeleton started paying in sweat. You used to call him on his skel-e-ton de-vice and this is a stark reminder of why.
