The dancer is a man with short red hair. He wears a red vest with four white buttons with a blue long sleeved shirt underneath and pink glasses, which is similar to the one that MC Hammer wore in his music video for the song. He is wearing dark blue baggy pants and has a red bracelet on his right wrist.
In the remake, he is in a brighter hue and his hair and glasses are now more pink.

The routine takes place in a red brick alley. On the wall, there are white-colored graffiti that appear to be scribbles. There are also various dark vinyl records that pop in and out in the center of the background throughout the song. The floor is a very dark red.

On Just Dance Wii, the graffiti is purple and there are pink lights on the floor.
Just Dance 3/Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of
In the Xbox versions of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, The bricks are more visible, and a laddert is now on the left side. The graffiti has been changed to read 'Just Dance'. There are also a couple of lights and the records are now spinning, and their center is purple. There are a few differences in each game though. In Just Dance: Greatest Hits, "Can’t Touch This" appears as graffiti in the background while in Just Dance 3, it doesn't appear. In the Wii versions of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, the background is simplified and the graffiti is a couple of random drawings (similar to the original version).
In the remake, the background is less detailed and resembles the original one, but it is in a lighter shade of red.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine from Just Dance Wii onward, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Make a stop sign with your right hand in front of you and your left hand by your hips.
In the remake, the line "What's it going to take in the 90s to burn the charts?" is misinterpreted in the lyrics as "What is it going to take and now it's gonna burn the charts", and "wipe" in the line "Singers are sweating, so pass them a wipe" is misinterpreted in the lyrics as "mic".
“And this is a beat/U can’t touch” is misinterpreted as “And this is a beat/U can’t touch this”.
This was fixed in the remake.
A caption for this song is called "Hammer Time", in a reference to the lyrics.
In Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance 2016 Mash-ups and Party Master Modes, as well as in the remake, the pictograms are blue with red arrows instead of red with pink arrows, and the Gold Move pictogram has a glowing outline.
Along with Hot Stuff and TiK ToK, this song was temporarily removed from Just Dance Now on March 26, 2015. However, they returned later that day.
On the menu icon, the dancer’s hair is in a different style. This was not fixed until the remake.
In the coach selection screen on the Xbox 360 versions of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, the coach is flipped.
In a Talent Search titled "Just Dance - Rabbids' application to the Contest", published on YouTube by Just Dance UK, Rabbids invade the dance, knocking over the points score chart and removing the dancer from the screen. At the end of the video, it says "Anyone can be the new star of Just Dance - Except the Rabbids"
