One of the secrets of Tik Tok’s success goes back to the dawn of time.
The moment our early ancestors could slap their hairy palms against their thighs, we could make a beat.
Dancing came pretty quickly after that.
Long before we had all these clever instruments, we stamped our feet and hollered to the sky. And danced.
We have been learning dances for hundreds of thousands of years.
Dances to celebrate.
Dances to mourn.
Dances to bring water from the sky.
Dances to bring our lovers closer.
And dances to keep the demons away.
No wonder it gets people hooked.
Flinging our arms around and shaking our bums out is one of the most human things we can do.
