Spider-Man Dancing to “Take on Me” Is the Best Thing You’ll See Today

Unless you have Black Panther tickets.

There are so many great things about this video of a YouTuber, dressed as Spider-Man, dancing to a-ha’s 1985 hit “Take on Me.” I don’t know if it’s because the song is from right in the middle of the heyday of John Hughes movies, and Spider-Man: Homecoming was basically pitched to the public as John Hughes meets Spider-Man, or if it’s because the original “Take on Me” music video prominently featured comic books, or possibly both, but this just feels too perfect.

All that overthinking aside, “Ghetto Spider,” as he’s known on YouTube, also just has some pretty slick and also wonderfully comedic dance moves to go along with it, although I’ll be forever confused as to why the audience he’s gathered seems more impressed by the jumping over his own leg bit than the flip he does off of his shoulders. Anyway, he’s got more where this came from over on his YouTube channel in case this is exactly what you needed today, and you’re not quite done yet.

Or you can just watch this one several times over, and also enjoy this unrelated but incredible GIF that I was reminded of by a video featuring a second dancer as Deadpool:


I hope this gives your Monday the boost it needed.
