Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a man wearing a black and white hat, a pair of black-framed glasses, a tuxedo with a tie, black pants, and black shoes.
In the remake, his skin and outfit are more realistic, and he is given a faded pink outline. The black areas are a bit darker.
The background is a yellow-greenish wall with a black, thin formal border that is curved on the corners and has a small decoration consisting of swirls and concentric circles on the top. The corners of the screen fade to black, three faint spotlights shine behind the dancer, some very small particles shine and a dark green rectangle is placed at the bottom of the wall. The floor is mostly black and reflects the wall.
In the remake, the background is more greenish at the top and more yellowish at the bottom, the border is bigger and fainter, the shading on the corners of the screen is less heavy and the floor is also lighter. The spotlights are replaced by faint rectangles and lines.
As soon as the first chorus starts, some black dots with black sharp lines fly quickly to the right. The dots also get larger when "bird" is sung, and shrink when there are no lyrics.
During the surfing part, the dots move to the top of the screen; after that, they move to the left.
The background is initially black, and then it fades in slowly; at the end, it fades back to black.
There is 1 Shake Move in this routine:
Shake Move: Bend over and then swing both of your hands up and down.
- At 2:02, Surfin’ Bird is the shortest song in Just Dance.
- In the Italian Amazon page for Just Dance, the band is referred to as "Trashmen" (without the article).
- Surfin’ Bird is one of 3 coaches that has only one base color (black), along with Girls Just Want to Have Fun (pink), and Womanizer (cyan).
- However, the remake gives the coach a pink outline, thus giving him three colors instead of two.
- The Beta version was going to have a different background. It was a pixelated black wide ongoing road; it was changed for unknown reasons.
- The Shake Move for Surfin’ Bird lasts for the second longest period of time as compared to every other Shake Move, being beaten by Jin Go Lo Ba.
- The dancer has the darkest color scheme compared to all the other dancers in Just Dance that have neon clothing.
- As with the other remakes from Just Dance, the remade coach has a heavy flickering effect.
- Although the pink and purple colors appear in the remade menu icon, they are not present in the actual gameplay.
- Surfin’ Bird is one of the six dancers from the first Just Dance that have never been used in Puppet/Party Master Modes or Mashups. The others are Bebe, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Groove Is In The Heart, Lump, and Womanizer.
- Because of it being the first in the Just Dance menu to have Shake Moves, it is the first routine in the series to have Shake Moves.
- An unused version of the menu square, which replaces the actual background with a purple horizontal gradient, can be found in the Just Dance files.
- In the beta version of the routine seen at PAX 2009, the background was pink instead of green-yellow.
- The routine uses moves from Peter Griffin’s dance in the Family Guy episode "I Dream of Jesus", where Peter can be found dancing to the song.
