Bust a Move Dancing Dog refers to a video loop of a large dog appearing to dance behind a chain link fence that is often remixed with different songs for comedic effect.


The original video of the dog was taken in an army encampment in Kazakstan and posted November 14th, 2013. The staff at the encampment are playing the song "You're My Heart, You're My Soul" by Modern Talking, a popular European group from the 1980s. The original video has acquired more than 3.4 million views as of April 6th, 2016.[1]


The original video was first posted to /r/videos on December 1st, 2013, where it acquired 1,802 points (93% upvoted). On December 23rd, 2013, the dog was featured on the Kazakstani news station Tengrin TV, and on January 24th, he was featured on another station, this time with a remix of the dog dancing to Gangam Style.

On April 2nd, 2016, user jabbathechav used the Imgur video to GIF tool to create a 15-second long GIFV format of the dancing dog,[2] which was then posted to the popular subreddits /r/funny[3] and /r/gif,[4] where it received 4,769 points (82% upvoted) and 5,863 points (84% upvoted) respectively. In the resulting comment threads, people began posting remixes of the dog dancing to songs using the website GIFSounds;[5] many of these eventually migrated to YouTube. On April 4th, YouTube user Michelle Walstra posted a video of the dog dancing to Dawin's song "Dessert," which received over 400,000 views.[6]
