Having the time of your life? Check, check, and ... CHECK for hidden cameras if you're dancing by yourself while waiting for the bus.
Thirty five-year old secretary Ellie Cole of Eastleigh, England, became a minor Internet celebrity when this video clip, titled "Eastleigh's Got Talent," went viral.
Back in April, YouTuber Jane Rowland noticed a woman dancing across the street from her cafe, J's Corner Cafe, on Bishopstoke Road, Eastleigh. So she took out her camera, videotaped Cole tapping her toes and wagging her fingers. Her partner Nigel Baker, a former DJ, set it to the soundtrack of ABBA's Dancing Queen. Baker told the Daily Mail, "I chose a soundtrack of Dancing Queen by ABBA as it seemed so appropriate, though I had no idea what she was really humming."
Cole later admitted that she was listening to Alesha Dixon's hit "Knock Down" (Alesha later praised Cole's moves as "brilliant"). Cole said this about her dancing routine, "My mum thinks I'm bonkers. But I'm a normal 34-year-old woman who just loves to dance."
Rowland's video clip went viral (after it was mercilessly copied by other YouTubers - a sad but incredibly common state of affairs, but that's another story), and writers for AH Men and director Lynne Paris took notice. They've invited Cole to perform on stage for a one-time performance last weekend.
You are the dancing queen, girl!
