On May 21, 2008, the You Look Nice Today crew released their 8th episode, Sacks-Minnelli Disease. During the first 15 minutes or so of that episode, they discussed dance moves, including their own prototype (at that point) dance called “The Fishstick.”
On May 25, 2008, the man known only as lonelysandwich released his Fishstick video, and the world was forever changed.
To celebrate the 2nd anniversary of “Fishstick”, I am proud to present “Fish Schtick” — a collection of friends doing the Fishstick, with background music Tighten Up Pt. 1 (LP Version) by Archie Bell And The Drells.
Please note that there are many versions of the song, but this is the canonical “3:16” version referred to in the YLNT episode.
In order of appearance:
(If you are in the video but I left you off that list, please let me know. If you sent me a video and it didn’t get included, that was unintentional; I tried to include at least a snippet of everyone who sent something in. This was my first attempt at doing one of these video collaboration things, and I learned a lot about how to do it better next time.)
Thanks to everyone who sent in a clip, and thanks to the YLNT folks for finally giving me something to do when I find myself stuck somewhere and required to dance.
