The coach is a man with long black hair with a large purple streak. He wears white and blue shades, a purple vest with loose straps, a silver studded belt, a pair of gold tights which, in terms of texture, resembles the ones from Crazy Little Thing and Feel This Moment, a silver elbow-length glove, and black shoes with brief block heels.
The background starts off on a tiger frame with purple fog in it. After zooming out of the screen, the routine takes place in a purple room with four blue and pink lights on the wall. The screen from the beginning displays some static, the dancer in a different shade, and a rotating disco ball. Around are some black televisions that display pink static and the dancer in the aforementioned different color shade. At the choruses, it zooms into the screen in a single paradox motion and displays pink and blue lights shining upwards. On the sides shine white lights. The song then ends with a rewind static, which makes it clear that the dancer was in a VHS tape.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Point to the screen with both arms.

The song is slightly shorter in-game.
There is an achievement for You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) which is called "The Definition of Insanity". To get it, the song must be played three times in a row.
This is a reference to the iconic quote spoken by Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3, another game made by Ubisoft.
The shades of the avatar for the dancer are different from those of the actual coach’s shades.
The shades were yellow and white instead of blue and white. This was later changed, leaving the former as a beta element. However, this beta element appears in the original menu icon, album coach, and half coach of the song.
You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)’s Just Dance Now files have been updated such that the square, album coach, and half coach show the coach with the correctly-colored shades instead of the coach with the yellow and white shades.
Due to the song not having any assigned banner colors in the Just Dance Unlimited files when it was first released, the menu colors of the game (depending which game the player uses that is compatible with banner files, like Just Dance 2017 and Just Dance 2018) were used for the banner when the song is selected.
As of October 19, 2018, there is a bug on Just Dance Now involving You Spin Me Round (Like a Record): after the routine is played, Dark Horse’s avatar is accidentally unlocked. The correct one remains locked and the song has to be played again to unlock the avatar.
Another sticker of the song's coach can be unlocked on Just Dance 2020 through the Gift Machine.
The electronic painting is inspired by the music video.
Parts of the coach are on the TVs, with a different color palette: pink and silver instead of purple and gold.
In the Spanish version of the game, the Mashup is called "Gente Divertida", which translates to "Funny People", instead of "Funny Guys".
There is a glitch which occurs during the Mashup; the original dancer may freeze in his starting position for the entire routine, although he fades away during the transitions, only to return in the same position.
