The Dancing Millipede

By now you've probably seen the viral video by Dr Juanita Arrieta of a millipede walking, made easier to see by the elongated shadow it cast. The millipede prancing jauntily along is intriguing, and of course the internet had to put music to it. @Pandamoanimum found a bunch of songs that not only refer to walking, but work with the bug's rhythm ("Walk of Life," "Footloose," "I Walk the Line," "Walking on Sunshine," "500 Miles," and The Imperial March, among others). You can see them in a Threadreader post, but I would recommend checking out the entire Twitter thread, as other people contributed their own ideas. My personal favorite is the one with music from Panjabi MC. (via Metafilter)
