The ‘Dancing Baby’; a.k.a. ‘Baby Cha-Cha’

The “Dancing Baby,” also called “Baby Cha-Cha,” refers to an animated 3D model of a baby and 3D-rendered video animations of that baby dancing a sort of cha-cha style of dance for several seconds.

The Dancing Baby animation quickly became a media phenomenon, Internet Phenomenon, Internet meme, and one of the first viral videos in the mid-to-late 1990s.

Original and virtually unmodified Dancing Baby animation clips using the sk_baby.max file appeared in a broad array of mainstream media, including television dramas (i.e. “Ally McBeal”), commercial advertisements, and music videos between 1996–1998 had a predominant influence on the proliferation of use of the original dancing baby animation. It is also arguable that the original cha-cha loop is extremely adaptable to many different styles of music as seen in various videos/clips of the original dancing baby cha-cha dance using songs spanning completely different genres.

We Are the 99 Percent

We are the 99 Percent.

We are getting kicked out of our homes.

We are forced to choose between groceries and rent.

We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution.

We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working at all.

We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything.

We are the 99 percent.

Brought to you by the people who occupy wall street.

Why will YOU occupy?
