Nothing says “Flashback Friday” quite like a mashup of this decade’s biggest dance moves. On Wednesday, April 6, inspirational comedian Judson Laipply proved that the Internet can be a great place to relive some of our biggest pop culture trends — and embarrassing moments.

In the 5-minute clip, Laipply, 40, takes the stage with an impressive array of popular dance moves that span decades and genres.

Some of the more unexpected song and dance choices included the viral mid-aught Internet sensation “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” by the Buckwheat Boyz, as well as Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin’.”

Laipply’s original “Evolution of Dance” video — which featured classic dance hits like Los del Rio’s “Macarena,” The Bangles’ “Walk Like an Egyptian,” and MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” — hit the Internet in 2006, and has since garnered nearly 300 million views since.
