June 21st, 2021

With all that’s transpired over the last couple of years, people have become pretty stressed out. Of course, it’s totally understandable as to why, but nothing good has ever come of constant worry.

And you know what they say. Laughter is the best medicine.

So, clearly what we all need to be doing is looking for reasons to laugh and, I daresay, we’ve found one of the best.

Clark S. Cox III, a software engineer at Apple, recorded two of his friends having a blast singing and lip-syncing while jamming out to the upbeat song “You’re the One That I Want” from the classic musical Grease. His pals are awesome to watch and the internet agrees.

Clark’s video has set social media ablaze. This video clip isn’t long but it’s packed with sheer awesomeness.

“This is why the Internet was invented.”

Clark’s buddies clown around singing and dancing to one of cinema’s most beloved songs.

So beloved, in fact, that it’s been a favorite of millions for decades now. One channels his inner Sandy while the other brings out his best Danny impersonation for their impromptu parking lot performance.

Sandy Olsson, played in the original version of Grease by Olivia Newton-John, and greaser Danny Zuko played by John Travolta, fell in love with each over the summer at the beach.

Suddenly, they’re thrust together at the same high school and while Sandy is ready to resume their romance, Danny can’t be seen by his Thunderbirds as a lovestruck fool.

This 1978 musical produced actors and actresses who went on to become big stars, along with fantastic songs that have withstood the test of time.

This song, in particular, is still a chart-topper for many.

Toward the end of the movie when Sandy opts for a total makeover to win Danny’s heart, the whole crew breaks out in “You’re the One That I Want.”

Poured into black leather pants and a black crop top with red stilettos, Sandy struts around the school’s year-end carnival and has Danny drooling over her. While Clark’s buddies don’t necessarily throw themselves that far into their routine, they’re still amazing to watch.

Though we have to admit, they’d look pretty good in blazing red stilettos.

While this scene from Grease truly is electrifying to watch, Take Lessons notes that singing helps boost the immune system, provides a form of respiratory exercise, perks up posture, helps with sleep, and lowers stress levels.

It even helps lifts one’s mood as a natural antidepressant.

When you watch these guys’ rendition of this dance and song, you won’t stop smiling. They’re simply that awesome.

Facebook user Reina Manso commented that she loves “those shaking shoulders!”

“I think I’ve watched this close to 10 times, you two have brought so much cheer that laugh still every time I watch it. AND YOU BOTH KEPT YOUR SOCIAL DISTANCING DOING IT.”

One of the guys looks a bit bashful but quickly loses his shyness once they start shimmying all around. When they sing “electrifying,” he comically acts as if he’s been shocked.

“I got chills, they’re multiplying. And I’m losing control. ‘Cause the power you’re supplying. It’s electrifying!”

They dance back and forth in the parking lot outside Clark’s vehicle and they’re honestly pretty good! They show off some slick moves and at one point, the pal in the green Adidas sweatshirt can barely contain his laughter.

“You better shape up, ’cause I need a man. And my heart is set on you. You better shape up, you better understand. To my heart, I must be true. Nothing left, nothing left for me to do.”

When they roll into the duet, they really bring it. They prance about, jamming and jiving. They’re just too funny to watch!

“You’re the one that I want (you are the one I want). Oo-oo-oo, honey.”
