Another year, another bank account balance too low to fork out $400 for a Splendour ticket. At least I had the small comfort of dry feet, and a warm bed. I also hear the traffic in Sydney is better than the traffic at Splendour?
Lucky for me, there were a lot of other people at Two Door Cinema Club who had found themselves in the same position, and who were privileged enough to experience my sick dance moves. And since they were so sick, I thought I’d share them with you.
Two Door are a lot of fun to dance to. It doesn’t even matter if you’re not a good dancer! Check out these moves, which are 100% guaranteed to make your friends (and your dad) jealous.
Am I going to regret these gifs when I hit my 30s and prospective employers google me? Probably. Is it worth it? Definitely.
The Finger Gun Bop
A classic dad move, I was doing this for the entirety of I Can Talk.
Finger Twist Thang
An oldie but a goodie, basically applicable to all Two Door Cinema Club grooves.
The Forever Alone Lighter Sway
What You Want started off nice and slow as the last song, and this dad didn’t have a mum to sway with! So this dad swayed alone while everyone else coupled up. Very sad.
The Scissor Knees
Ah the scissor knees – also a favourite amongst primary school principles at school discos. It certainly made some people take a few steps back to get some more distance from me.
The “I haven’t listened to the last album enough to know this song but I’ll bop along anyway” Bop
I still don’t know what song this was, but I know it was good enough for me to dance really badly to.
The Weird Wavey Arms
A crowd favourite, in which I became the wacky inflatable arm waving tube man.
The ‘God DAMN Lavender is a BOP’ Jam
What more can I say? It’s a certified bop. You can’t help but dance like mad to it.
I cannot wait to dad dance to Two Door again, and I hope that if you ever have the chance, these moves will inspire you to do the same.
