Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman with dark pink hair in a ponytail resting on her left shoulder. She wears a 50s styled red one-piece swimsuit with orange straps, and a pink strawberry on the left hip, an orange cincher around the waist, a pink headband, and a pair of orange pumps.
In the remake, the coach retains her features. However, she has a much more realistic appearance, and her pumps are now pink. Her skin is now tinted a slight pink.
The background seems to be a collection of 50's-style advertisements related to Californian culture; some of them are posters of the dancer. One of the posters is blank and has the reflection of the dancer. During Snoop Dogg's part, a green raccoon on a poster starts dancing. He has a brown belly, wears white gloves, a neon green necklace, and a yellow and brown cap.
