Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman with dark pink hair in a ponytail resting on her left shoulder. She wears a red one-piece swimsuit that resembles the 1950s decade, with orange straps, a pink strawberry on the left hip, an orange belt 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. Her face is less visible.
The background seems to be a collection of 1950s 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. (This character is also commonly mistaken for the first appearance of the Panda)
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine, all of which are the same:
