In the Wii version of Just Dance 3 and later games, the song is covered by The Sunlight Shakers; in Just Dance Kids, the song is covered by The Just Dance Kids.
Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is dressed up as a male dog. The dog costume is a dalmatian dog with a red shirt, black shoes, and red sunglasses. He also wears a bone necklace. The dancer's costume has light-yellow fur. Starting with Just Dance 3, his fur is white.
Not much is changed in the remake. However, his outlines are in higher definition.
The Smurfs Dance Party
The dancer is the Smurfs' nemesis, Gargamel. He is wearing his trademark black robe, and furry red boots.
The background are clouds with bones flying around. The bones and ground light up in the Just Dance 3 version and beyond.
The Smurfs Dance Party
The background is a snapshot of Gargamel's laboratory. Papa Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Gutsy Smurf and Smurfette constantly pop out from various parts of Gargamel's machine.
There are three Shake Moves in the routine, all of which are the same: All Shake Moves: Randomly swing your arms.
All Shake Moves
Shake Move 1 in-game
Shake Moves 2 and 3 in-game
Starting with Just Dance 3, there are 2 Gold Moves in the routine, both of which are the same.: Both Gold Moves: Do a wild arm shake similar to Shake Moves 2 and 3 in Just Dance.
There is an avatar of the dancer available in Just Dance 2014. It is unlockable only in July.
The avatar is also available on Just Dance 2015, but only if you have saved data from the previous games (only possible on Wii).
If you look closely at the dog mask, you can see the dancer's head in the mouth hole.
In Just Dance, the coach's costume was white, but it was changed into a yellow tone. Later remakes are based on this beta element.
In a few lyrics for Who Let the Dogs Out in Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, there is a full stop at the end of the lines, making them read Who let the dogs out.. This only happens during the second, third, and fourth times in which the lyrics are sung. In the other times when it is sung, it says Who let the dogs out without the full stop.
This only happens on the Wii version of both games.
The short gameplay for this routine was the first Just Dance gameplay video to be uploaded on the American Just Dance YouTube channel.
This is the second coach with yellow skin in the series; the first is Hot N Cold.
However, this coach receives the typical white skin tone in Just Dance 3, while Hot N Cold had to wait for her remake to have her skin coloured white.
At the beginning of the Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits versions, some quiet barking noises and a police siren can be heard.
In Just Dance, Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, the lyrics say I tell the fellas/Start the name callin'. In Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited, this line is Until the fellas/Start the name callin'.
