What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Can’t Stop the Stormtroopers



Andres Diaz

Those of you with small children may already know about this, but I just saw it for the first time, and I’m in love!

“I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet…”

This is a series of music videos by YouTuber Andres Diaz set to Justin Timberlake’s song Can’t Stop the Feeling! (featured in the movie Trolls). Each video is comprised of dozens of clips of people dancing taken from movies, TV, commercials, and other YouTube videos including some great moves by Sven Otten (plus lots and lots of Stormtroopers. I don’t know why. Just go with it). The combination of this joy-filled song and all that masterfully-edited dancing really makes for a great way to pass an hour. I’ve listed them below in order, but you don’t need to watch them all at once (or watch them all). In fact, if you don’t have the time or the inclination to watch the series, another YouTuber did a family-friendly version that my friend’s 2-year-old swears by.

And just in case those aren’t enough, I’ve also posted JT’s “first look” version featuring the actors who voiced the movie (plus a few of JT’s friends).

Happy viewing!

And here’s the original, full of fun cameos!

  4. I want to know who the Justin look alike is in the shopping mall. I have watched this video at last 30 times now! So much Bette than Justin’s own video by far.

  5. More comments. Just wanted to say Napoleon Dynamite is from my home town and so is Jake Lloyd’s. And how did u get permission to use so many clips for all these movies? Just watched 4 more. A little late on this song I know but no kids or grandkids. Just found it on YouTube watching older Justin videos. Also no tv for a yr and a half since mil moved in and has my tv! Awesome love this song and the storm troopers. I use to wait on Jake before he acted. He said he was going to be in a Arnold Swartzanager movie. He was 3 or 4 so couldn’t say his name yet. Lol Who knew? I held Anikan Skywalker. How many can say that? But Hollywood broke him. So sad…..

    • Not my videos, so I didn’t get permission for anything. I’m just linking to someone else’s videos on YouTube. I think the editor used the clips under the Fair Use Doctrine, though I wouldn’t want to be him defending it in court…
