Whatever happened to the Dancing Baby?

Postby Butterfield on Fri Feb 26, 2010 1:28 am

Forget those Evian babies, remember the original Dancing Baby, one of the first "internet memes" from the late 90s?

I didn't like it. It was creepy. I hope they took it away to some place where it could never disturb people again. I like to think it's in the same place as the bloke who demanded I leave Britney alone.

I don't even know what there was to like about it! I remember my sister going on about it :blahblah: and I'm sure you could get CD roms of it. :eyecrazy:

I seem to remember it featured on Ally McBeal - a programme I never actually watched.

As for Chris Crocker of "Leave Britney Alone!" fame, I have no idea whatever happened to him either.

It was creepy as hell, I could never understand why people thought it was cute.

That's the first time I've ever seen that, and to be honest I wish I hadn't :monstermash:
