This Dancetastic Music Video Is Pure #FridayFeeling

Warning: "Get Stupid" is about to be stuck in your head—again!—and you'll love every second of it.


Remember the uber-catchy song in that Samsung Galaxy S9 commercial from back in February? No big deal if you don't, because that infectious track—Aston Merrygold's deliciously danceable "Get Stupid"—is back, and this time there's an incredibly dancy music video to match.

In addition to writing and recording music, Merrygold is a legit dancer in his own right. In fact, he recently opened BASE Dance Studios in London. Merrygold (he's the one in the pink sweatshirt) understandably takes center stage in the clip, but he also recruited tons of truly incredible dancers from BASE to star alongside him. Everyone from tiny hip-hoppers to a red-hot ballroom couple get to show off all their best moves—and we think you'll be seriously inspired. If you need a kickoff-to-summer soundtrack, look no further—and start learning all of the 1000%-lit choreo, stat!

Sylvie Guillem and Éric Vu-An, two former leading dancers with the Paris Opéra Ballet, were both muses to Maurice Béjart. The boundary-pushing choreographer created several roles for each of them throughout their careers, including the 1985 duet "Mouvement, Rythme, Étude," when Guillem was just 20-years old and Vu-An just 21.
