Dancing Goths isn’t necessarily a new Instagram account, but it’s a criminally underappreciated one, with a mere five thousand and some followers. Here’s the gist: Some Instagram hero mashes up videos of Cybergoths dancing (somewhere in Europe, most likely) with non-goth songs. The results vary, given the site’s proclivity toward semi-douchey hardcore and emo, but are generally amazing. Take, for instance, this clip, which features some sad-looking youths picking it up to The Specials.
Or this one, which mashes up some dudes dancing in a circle while wearing gas masks to Bloc Party’s “Helicopter.”
A few other choice picks are below to either brighten up or severely tamp down your Thursday.
There are also a number of dancing goth mashups on YouTube, should you really want to dig for those.
