Slide to the left, slide to the right… slide to McDonald’s?

Everybody clap your hands! I love how McDonald’s decided to use The Cha Cha Slide in one of its Happy Meal commercials. I think it’s great. In fact, I’m lovin’ it.

Originally developed and recorded by DJ Casper in 1996 for Bally’s Total Fitness,The Cha Cha Slide Part 2 by Mr. C The Slide Man (aka DJ Casper) Featuring The Platinum Band was recorded later. Because in part 2, they felt the desire to get funky. You can practically taste the funk as this kid eats his apple slices in the aforementioned Happy Meal commercial:

The Cha Cha Slide Part 2 itself has provided some serious line-dancing action in clubs, at weddings, proms, and parties across the U.S. and beyond. Better watch the video now, or you’ll look like a jackass at your niece’s Super Sweet 16 party.
