7 Reasons Why this Alaskan Man Dancing to Alicia Keys is How to Win Life

by ParentCo. February 15, 2016

Clearly, Alicia Keys is this guy's jam. And no one, no one, no one can get in the way of what he's feeling. And feel it, he does. So hard. All in. Besides being an excellent distraction from whatever productive thing you were trying to do, this video is a highly watchable metaphor for how to win life:
1 | This guy makes an earnest effort. If you're gonna do a thing, don't half-ass it.
2 | He's wearing an anchor motif sweatshirt -- an obvious nod to his seafaring backdrop. Respect where you're already at, always.
3 | Multiple slushy running man moves. The hard thing is often the best thing.
4 | He vibes so big, he wipes out. Feel the feels, man. Let it fly.
5 | He struggles to get back on his feet, ultimately prevailing. YOU JUST GOTTA KEEP GOING, PEOPLE.
6 | When it's all over, he walks away. Because eventually, you gotta know when a thing is done and move on.
7 | None of this would have been possible without the one man #squad in the background holding up the sound system à la John Cusack in Say Anything. Always have -- and be -- a friend with this level of loyalty.
