Appearance of the Dancers
The coaches are a man and a woman dressed in nineteenth century fashion. They have a glowing light grey outline that fades around their feet, as well as a frame drop effect that makes the routine look like a nineteenth century film.
P1 is a chubby man with black, parted hair, black mustache, and round glasses with a beige frame. He is wearing a beige 1880s style jumpsuit pajamas with a brown shirt underneath, complete with a black bow tie. He also wears a pair of dark fuchsia boots. At the beginning of the routine, he wears a fuchsia bowler hat that he throws away before the first chorus starts.
P2 is a woman with black hair in a braid. She is wearing an 1880s style night gown with a fuchsia-reddish corset, a light brown bra with light brown shoulder ties, and a brown frilly skirt, along with a fingerless glove, dark fuchsia socks, and light brown heeled boots. At the beginning of the routine, she also wears a rose-greyish cardigan while keeping her shoulders bare. As soon as the song starts, she throws it away.
Firstly, the title "Hit The Road Jack" appears in the style of a silent film. The routine takes place within a bedroom that is in a sepia-tone with static effects, similar to an old television set. Then, "The End" shows up. The whole routine is in a lower frame rate to give the feeling of an old film.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves:
- P1: Lift your right leg and lift both arms as if to be attacked.
- P2: Make a semicircle with both arms as if to say "Stop!"
