Canadian Dance Moves is an endearing homage to our country’s wholesome personality. It showcases moves dubbed The Lumberjack, The Friendly Backpacker and our personal favourite, Carry The Two-Four. Plus they're easy to bust out on the dance floor -- or on the Grouse Grind in North Van, or on the frozen Rideau Canal in Ottawa, or maybe backpacking in Italy. You know, wherever the mood to dance Canadian strikes.
Liam Kearney, a digital production co-ordinator, his girlfriend Stina Dios, and Jeff Higgins created the video in Toronto over a few days. Kearney says the biggest expense was a pair of $25 red pants.
He says they created the video just for fun. “I enjoy making people laugh and I enjoy dancing, so I figured I could try and combine the two,” Kearney told The Huffington Post B.C.
Oh and that weirdly hypnotic song is called “Canadian, Please,” which made its own YouTube splash in 2009.
