This is the beginning of a long, three-day weekend in America. Yes, the Fourth of July celebrates our independence, but it's also a fun holiday, marked by fireworks, parades, and backyard BBQs, chasing fireflies and relaxing out-of-doors with friends and families.
Today's video is in that nothing-too-serious spirit. Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon is one of the unavoidably catchy Top-40 songs of the summer, and YouTube user MsTabularasa has cleverly edited memorable dance scenes from popular movies of the last seventy-five years or so to fit with the song. If you can't name them all (I'll admit I couldn't; I guess I don't go to the movies enough), the YouTube page does have the full list.
Enjoy the weekend!

There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
