Why we chose him: People all over the Internet (including us Rockettes!) are going gaga for this 3D animated clip of A.A. Milne’s beloved character moving and grooving to contemporary tunes.
Thanks to the Twitter account, @WinnieDancing (which now has over 42K followers), everyone’s favorite honey-loving, roly-poly bear nails the choreography to some of our favorite songs—from Fergie’s “Fergalicious” and Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” to classic theme melodies like Law & Order and Grey’s Anatomy. The best part? The account manager is taking song requests through direct messages!
Even though our favorite childhood bear wasn’t exactly known for his grace or agility, we can now confirm that Pooh’s hips, in fact, do not lie. So who’s up for a Pooh Bear-inspired dance party?!
Fun fact: The original video of Winnie the Pooh doing Psy’s “Gangnam Style” dance was posted to YouTube in 2015.
Rockette kicks (on a scale of 10 to 10!):
