Happiness = Group Dancing

I'm sure many of you have seen this, but had to share it for those who hadn't... I've been showing it to anyone who will crowd around my laptop & just adore it - its like bottled happiness! Seriously - try to watch without smiling or bopping along.

It was filmed during Oprah's season opening episode where they blocked off several blocks of Michigan Avenue here in Chicago for the big O. A lot of people in the city were upset, and rightfully so, that a celebrity gets such special treatment... but the Wave kinda makes up for it in my book. Sorry but it does.

They apparently got people to come in to learn the dance the day before & then everyone who knew it spread out throughout the crowd & taught the people around them. Oprah didn't know it was going it happen, so I also love her reaction - pretty much the same as mine when I first saw it!
