Christopher Walken is quite the seasoned hollywood veteran, starring in movies since the 70’s and before that, doing musical theatre at Washington Dance Studio. It’s no secret that Walken likes to move his feet in his films (and infamously in Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice”), but you’ve never seen him move like this. Thanks to the Huffington Post, there now exists a super cut of all of Walken’s dance moves across 57 films and three decades in one glorious clip. Feast your eyes on this wondrous mash-up, set appropriately to C&C Music Factory’s 1990 smash “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now):”
Has Walken really danced in so many films? Indeed. Here’s a short list of some of the more notable films of his featuring fancy footwork: “Batman Returns” (1992), “Wayne’s World 2” (1993), “Pulp Fiction” (1994), “Joe Dirt” (2001), “Catch Me If You Can” (2002), “The Rundown” (2003), “Man on Fire” (2004), “The Stepford Wives” (2004), “Wedding Crashers” (2005), “Click” (2006), “Hairspray” (2007). Wow!
As E! Online points out, this mind-bending super clip just happened to be released on International Happiness Day, a worldwide holiday established in 2012. The official statement for International Happiness Day reads:
Recognizing the need for a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to happiness and the well-being of all peoples, [we] proclaim March 20th the International Day of Happiness, inviting all organizations of the United Nations system and other international and regional organizations, to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.
So a Christopher Walken super cut definitely counts as “public awareness-raising activities,” right? We think so. How did you spread happiness on International Day of Happiness?
