The pioneers who first connected four host computers together in 1969 and created ARPANET, which would become the foundation of the Internet had no idea of the world-changing repercussions of their innovations. Our modern Internet has become a living, breathing cultural behemoth that has changed the way we live, exist, create and interact. It has broken down cultural barriers, revolutionized education, and completely challenged the very foundation of how we communicate. It may even be shaping how our brains are hardwired.

But perhaps most importantly (and definitely most impressively), it has brought us hilarious videos of people doing ridiculous things in T-Rex costumes. And this video of a man in a T-Rex costume dancing in A Chorus Line might be one of the best things the Internet has ever done for humanity.

The video starts with one brave T-Rex standing alone amongst a group of dancers in a studio, dedicatedly finishing the last steps of his routine as they’re counted off to him. Then he stands stoically in the back of the studio, the dramatic silence slowly building anticipation of what’s to come.

Once the music begins the T-Rex explodes into graceful action. As he does so, he simultaneously causes our own hearts to explode from the excitement and visual delight only a giant, dancing dinosaur can provide.

He leaps with poise as his classmates look on in awe, obviously nothing but supportive of their reptilian friend as they happily cheer him on.

The man who posted the video (and did the routine in the T-Rex costume) is our new favorite human dancer, Michael Macilwee. Like many of the most brilliant things on the Internet, the video is short and sweet so you can watch it over and over, guilt-free. Because, believe us, it is the opposite of a time-waste.

We’d like to formally request a T-Rex flashmob next, please. Until then, we’ll have to just enjoy the wonder that is this T-Rex dance video. And we are not complaining about that at all.
