Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a man. He is wearing a red and white checkered shirt with orange suspenders and glasses. He is also wearing a pink and blue hat, pink pants yellow and white striped socks, and purple shoes. He begins by materializing from glass and ends by shattering into glass shards.
In his Just Dance Now remake, his outfit is darker, his sunglasses' lenses are now fully black, and he also looks more realistic. His mouth is also slightly visible.
The background is a collage of different colored triangles. Around are some silhouetted stage lights, the ones above lighting up. The floor reflects off the background and dancer. Starting with Just Dance: Greatest Hits, there are more light effects.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Make a small circle in the air slowly with both of your arms.
Gold Move 2: Lower both of your arms in a semi-circle.
Gold Move 3: Put your hands on your chest.
