American monuments dance to celebrate Trump's farewell: here's the funny video


A wild dance to celebrate Trump's farewell: iconic monuments and works of American art dance in a hilarious video.

A funny video to “celebrate” the end of Donald Trump’s term in office, starring the iconic monuments and works of the United States dancing happily. It aired last Wednesday on Jimmy Kimmel’s Live, the popular talk show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, comedian, actor and TV producer, and two-time Oscar night host. The video, just under two minutes in length, is a kind of big party where monuments and some of the works that have made American art history come to life and dance to the notes of Steam’s Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye, a very famous song from 1983. Kimmel then posted the video on his highly-followed Twitter profile (nearly 12 million followers), and within hours the clip went viral, with over two hundred thousand “likes” and more than seventy thousand “retweets.”

The video begins with the Statue of Liberty suddenly beginning, surprisingly, to wiggle on its plinth: it is then the turn of the statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial. The 16th president of the United States comes down from his podium, chants the word “goodbye” well over the notes of the music, and begins a wild dance. This is followed in quick succession by the Washington obelisk wiggling sinuously, the Martin Luther King Memorial with the great activist “breaking through” his stone and performing a somersault, and then the very famous posters We Can Do It! by J. Howard Miller (also known as “Rosie the River”) and I Want You by James Montgomery Flag with the famous portrait of Uncle Sam, the iconic Smokey Bear in the Only You poster, a portrait of Ruth Bader, the Hope poster with the portrait of Obama executed by Shepard Fairey. And then again the Crazy Horse monument in the Black Hills in South Dakota, the La Ofrenda mural in Los Angeles dedicated to Dolores Huerta, the Mount Rushmore National Monument, the Christ of the Ozarks at Eureka Spring in Arkansas, the monumental Hollywood Sign, Grant Wood’s American Gothic, Whistler’s Mother. It all ends with two White House staffers carrying away--by weight--the portrait of Trump while the former president is still speaking. With George Washington’s portrait mocking him by singing Move Bitch by Ludacris.

Jimmy Kimmel’s clip, a kind of journey inside the history of American art, can be seen on YouTube (where it has already made more than four million views) at this link.
