    Archie Bell & The Drells - Tighten Up (Live!)

    I think we could all use a little pick-me-up today.

    Now make it mellow!

    (*thud* … A backup dancer kicks the mic stand on his first fancy spin. So great!)

    It’s always the right time.

    (But I have to say: these guys are terrible at The Fishstick.)

  3. Seeing the Fishstick: The Video Game made me think of the Fish Schtick.

    I checked and realized that it has been just over a year.

    A. Year.

    Crazy.

    Anyway, I want to say thanks again to all the folks who contributed, and re-post it in case anyone missed it.

    (Here’s a link to the original on Vimeo in case it doesn’t appear on your device.)

  4. "Fish Schtick"

    H.264/iPhone version here

    On May 21, 2008, the You Look Nice Today crew released their 8th episode, Sacks-Minnelli Disease. During the first 15 minutes or so of that episode, they discussed dance moves, including their own prototype (at that point) dance called “The Fishstick.”

    On May 25, 2008, the man known only as lonelysandwich released his Fishstick video, and the world was forever changed.

    To celebrate the 2nd anniversary of “Fishstick”, I am proud to present “Fish Schtick” — a collection of friends doing the Fishstick, with background music Tighten Up Pt. 1 (LP Version) by Archie Bell And The Drells.

    Please note that there are many versions of the song, but this is the canonical “3:16” version referred to in the YLNT episode.

    In order of appearance:

    (If you are in the video but I left you off that list, please let me know. If you sent me a video and it didn’t get included, that was unintentional; I tried to include at least a snippet of everyone who sent something in. This was my first attempt at doing one of these video collaboration things, and I learned a lot about how to do it better next time.)

    Thanks to everyone who sent in a clip, and thanks to the YLNT folks for finally giving me something to do when I find myself stuck somewhere and required to dance.

  5. "Fishstick"

    A weak homage to the original great one: http://www.vimeo.com/1063136

    But I was in the airport and bored (and just finished the worst meal of my life).

    If none of this makes any sense to you, you should go listen to You Look Nice Today, episode 8 and stop being such an uncultured swine.
