The ostrich dance you just watched has actually taken human form. The Ostrich Dance, also known as the Sweatshirt Monster, is a video fad that involves putting one’s legs through the sleeves of a hooded sweatshirt and dancing awkwardly to hip hop music. In September 2013, the fad began to spread on Vine and Tumblr in the form of short-length video clips and GIFs.
According to Onekind.org
- Ostriches’ wings reach a span of about 2 metres and are used in mating displays, to shade chicks, to cover the naked skin of the upper legs and flanks to conserve heat, and as “rudders” to help them change direction while running.
- When threatened ostriches run although their powerful, long legs can be formidable weapons, capable of killing a human or a potential predator like a lion with a forward kick.
