Appearance of the Dancer
The coach is a man. He wears a bright yellow shirt, tucked into his trousers, and with a purple necktie, secured by a tie clip and black suspenders. The trousers are baggy and bright green with blue stripes. He wears an overcoat of the same shade of green, with a blue handkerchief folded into his right chest pocket of the coat, and three blue buttons on the coat. He wears a black hat with a aqua blue lace, a pair of round-rimmed sunglasses, and a pair of black shoes with light blue socks underneath. He resembles Elton John from the music video.
The background takes place in a cartoonish city, with the coach surfing on a wheeled upright piano before jumping off and landing on the road. During most of the routine, the coach performs moves to avoid getting hit by falling objects that come from the sky, starting with flower pots. As the song progresses, the objects become bigger and heavier, among them being a ship's anchor, a safe, an 80’s CRT TV, a metal rebar, an anvil, a 10-ton weight, a wrecking ball, a bathtub, a UFO, and a fishing boat. After the objects finish falling, the city tilts backwards by 45 degrees, sending the objects and the coach sliding down.
In the chorus, the background quickly slides to a sunset before hurricane-strength winds blow several sheets of paper, some crates, a table lamp, and the aforementioned objects away and behind the coach. The background also shakes while the coach continues dancing, oblivious to the wind and the objects.
Near the end of the chorus, the same crates and later a few refrigerators fall from the sky and clones of the coach wearing a pink suit pop out every time the word "Yeah" is said, in the same style as a Jack-in-a-box, before going back in.
In the bridge, the background changes to a night scenery before a rogue wrecking ball comes in and attempts to attack the coach.
In the final chorus, the wind continues blowing after the crates and refrigerators fall from the sky.
There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Pretend to rub the brim of your hat.
Gold Move 2: Lift your right arm and drop your left arm, both at a right angle, before bending to the right.
