VIDEO: HAVE YOU GOT THE FORTNITE DANCE MOVES?Date: 2018-07-05
Fortnite is an award-winning online game that is on the tip of everyone's tongue.
One day, 98% of Earth's human population was wiped out, and the remaining humans woke up to skies covered in dense clouds, creating chaotic storms that dropped humanoid zombie-like creatures that attacked the living. The survivors built a field that cleared the storm clouds from immediately overhead, reducing the attacks from zombies, and used the protection of these fields to set up survivor bases across the globe. The player is a commander of one of these bases, on a mission to go out of the storm shield to find resources, survivors, and other allies to help expand their storm shield and find a way to return to the safety of Earth.
One of the very small details of Fortnite that got a lot of attention was the celebratory dances the avatars perform as a sort of virtual victory lap. You will actually know quite a few of them, one of the most famous being the floss. The dance move was first popularised on SNL by 15-year-old Russell “Backpack Kid” Horning. You know the one where you flail your arms around your body like a pendulum having an epileptic fit on the bottom of the grandfather clock. Even though it looks utterly ridiculous, it's still pretty mesmerising at the same time.
Unfortunately, these victory dances have just remained on your computer screens as these celebratory dances are being seen more in real life and even on the sports field. Yes, even world-famous soccer and rugby players are incorporating elements of Fortnite dances in the post goal celebrations.
Well, Buzzfeed decided to get professional dancers to recreate the Fortnite dances and they did a pretty good job... until they tried to recreate the Squat Kick, which literally defies the laws of gravity. One person even admitted that the last time they tried the Squat Kick dance their cat flew into the ceiling fan... ouch!
