Is the car your favorite place to bust a move? We hear you. (Literally: you’ve got those tunes blasting.) We’ve trawled through YouTube and dug up eight hilarious car dancing videos that prove that the dance floor ain’t got nothing on the passenger seat.
Scroll down to watch groovers young and old, solo and in groups, practice their best song-and-dance routines on the go—and maybe pick up a few new moves yourself. (Just be sure to put your ride in park once the intense choreography kicks off.)
1. THOSE CRAZY KIDS
We’re certainly impressed by this girl’s dedication to the music—and her expressive (read: hilariously unhinged) dancing. But the best part of the video? Credit goes to Mom, who remains completely unfazed by the performance. We’ve got a feeling she’s seen this routine before.
2. DON’T BELIEVE ME, JUST WATCH
It might’ve come out months beforehand, but “Uptown Funk” was still our song of the summer; we couldn’t get it out of our heads. But maybe not quite as much as this guy, who ups the lip-syncing ante with his high-energy performance. (Hold out for the sombrero and confetti cannon around 2:15.)
3. CAR DANCING, PUNJABI-STYLE
Top 40 tunes certainly aren’t the only ones you can get down to behind the wheel. Proof? This super impressive video, which sees three friends dance and lip-sync along to popular Punjabi songs through the years (with the costumes to match).
4. STARS: THEY’RE JUST LIKE US
No, but really—you’re not the only one who dances along to Taylor Swift tunes in the car. Taylor Swift does, too. While promoting “Blank Space,” she drove around town with a BBC radio DJ, lip-syncing and dancing along the way. We want in on her squad’s party-on-wheels.
5. GRANDMA’S GOT SWAGGER
This video might only be 18 seconds long, but that was more than enough time to convince us that we want to be best friends—and dance partners—with this grandma. She’s not afraid to get down to some hip-hop, even in front of her bewildered grandkids. Think she’ll join us on our next road trip?
6. ROAD TRIP SINGALONG
We’ve all been there: packed in the car with friends, embarking on an epic road trip…and then the singalong session begins. The driver in this video takes it to a new level, cycling through the Spice Girls, Mariah Carey, Enya—all while his seatmate gives him some pretty intense side-eye (and eventually manages to catch some Zs).
7. HIGHWAY SINGALONG
Car dancing is clearly fun in a group…but what happens when you can spread the joy beyond your own vehicle? That’s just what happens in this highway singalong, when “Build Me Up Buttercup”’s contagious good vibes spread from car to car. Or, most cars. (We spy one nearby driver who might not be such a fan.)
8. WAYNE’S WORLD
But this list isn’t complete without a big hat tip to Wayne’s World, and its infamous Bohemian Rhapsody singalong scene—a timeless pioneer when it comes to hilarious car dancing videos. We might not recommend imitating all of these moves, but this clip is still one of the greats. Party on, Garth.
