WATCH: Guy Loses Fantasy Football Bet, Forced To Recreate “Chandelier” Video
Everyone loves Sia’s “Chandelier” music video, except maybe this guy, who was forced to recreate it after losing a fantasy football bet. Chuck Jose, a digital operations specialist for PlayStation, posted the clip to YouTube this week, explaining, “Never lose a fantasy football bet. Or else you will create a shot for shot, homemade version of the music video for Sia’s ‘Chandelier.'”
In the mesmerizing video, Jose, also known as CJ, wearing a blonde wig and leotard, is seen mirroring the original video’s young female dancer as she goes through the now-iconic choreography. It’s just as thrilling and hilarious as it sounds. On Tuesday, Allen Mark, the guy who won the bet, tweeted, “I can never retweet that video enough.”
Of course, CJ is not the first unexpected “Chandelier” mimic. Back in July, Jimmy Kimmel and his sidekick Guillermo did their own recreation of the dance moves, with the help of the Sia video’s star Maddie Ziegler. Things didn’t go so well. But we’re impressed by the work that both Kimmel and CJ put into their versions of “Chandelier.” They’re both tributes to the power and beauty of dance.
