Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a female goalie with frizzy green hair help up by yellow tassels. She is wearing a green tied crop top with a yellow collar, yellow and dark green gym shorts, yellow knee high socks, and green sneakers with yellow laces.
In the remake, the coach is no longer glowing and she is in a darker shade. In addition, she now has a light green outline. Her skin is also tinted a slight flesh color.
The background is a soccer (football outside of the U.S.) field where the dancer is the goalkeeper. The audience is turquoise and is holding up banners that say "RUN RUN RUN" and "VIVA FUTEBOL." Square LED lights are circled in the arena and the sky is at nighttime. A giant green and yellow soccer ball appears at the end of the routine, which the goalkeeper kicks to the screen. The dancer's reflection is visible on the ground. In the remake, the audience is colored orange and the ground is no longer reflective.
There are 4 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Close both of your arms in a circle.
Gold Moves 2, 3 and 4: Push out your hands and pull them in. These Gold Moves occur consecutively and rapidly.

- Along with It's Raining Men, Dagomba, and Alright, Futebol Crazy was one of the final DLCs to be released for Just Dance 3.
- On September 12, 2011 Just Dance’s official US channel uploaded a video of soccer players Hope Solo and Alex Morgan playing Futebol Crazy.
- The dancer originally had a different color scheme, where all the green parts were purple and all the yellow parts were light blue.
- This beta version is used in Are You Gonna Go My Way’s Sweat Mashup, but only for the Xbox 360 version. On Wii and PS3, only the pictogram color is changed to purple.
- Futebol Crazy is the first soccer/football-themed routine in series. The second is The World is Ours.
- Coincidentally, both songs were first released as DLCs during the years where the FIFA World Cup was held.
- At the end, the dancer kicks a soccer ball towards the screen which makes the dancer disappear. This breaks the fourth wall.
- In the Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 3, the screen fades to black.
- The coach sometimes disappears due to a glitch.
- The coach’s color scheme resembles the flag of Brazil because it is known as the country of soccer/football.
- The "1" on the coach’s back was reversed during development, but this mistake was fixed in the final release.
- In Tribal Dance’s Mashup, the soccer balls do not appear while she pretends to save the goals.
- The coach has a much brighter color scheme on the menu icon in Just Dance 2 and Just Dance: Summer Party.
- On Just Dance 2020 and Just Dance 2021, Baby One More Time’s map background is accidentally displayed instead of Futebol Crazy’s.
