THE LIVING ROOM — I've heard people say that the perfect video does not exist. I'd like those naysayers to explain this.
This tho. Day has just been made. 😂 pic.twitter.com/nyNBoFk9UN— Allison Janney (@AllisonBJanney) September 25, 2019
This is Buddy Mercury and his tiny human. Buddy likes to tickle the ivories and sing, and the tiny human loves to bust a move. Put the two together and you get possibly the most adorable thing you'll see this month. Yes, I'm fully aware it's only the third day of October.
While I am a big fan of the video, it also upsets me a little. Ever since I was a husky child I wanted to dance like the Jets and the Sharks in "West Side Story." I also wanted to be able to play the piano and sing like Billy Joel, but I'm apparently tone deaf and my fingers have the agility of a petrified Redwood. It also doesn't help that my body has the natural rhythm of a wounded gazelle.
What I'm trying to say is Buddy here plays the piano and sings better than me, and tiny human has moves I only dream of pulling off. I'm jealous, OK? This video simultaneously fills my heart with joy and my bones with envy.
Do your thing, Buddy Mercury and tiny human. Hopefully, someday, I will possess your talents.
