Your Day Can Always Be Improved With Dancing Porgs

Stop. Porg Time.

See? You haven’t even watched the video yet and already your mood has brightened just a little bit.


German media design student Julian Leupold, who goes by the name Leupsi, has released a short music video showing our favorite porgs dancing to a remix of the Cantina Theme. It’s part Happy Feet, part “I’m Han Solo” from Kinect Star Wars, and all adorable. I’ve already watched three times and it makes me smile.

You know, life is hard. It’s only March and it already feels like we’ve lived half a year. Sometimes, you deserve to just sit back and enjoy something fun. As Maui would say if he was suddenly in a galaxy far far away: “Porg Welcome.”
