You end up with quite a tail to tell.

Please Pass The Salt -N-Pepa

Let’s flashback to the MTV 1980s, shall we? (If you weren’t born yet, just bear with us older farts.) This one’s c/o T.O. and blends the tune “Push It” with some Adorable Animuhl Antics. Are we ready? Hit it!

And while we’re having them do our work for us at it, let’s keep the beat moving n’ check out this French Bulldog Dance Party. WHAT.
