Watch Beyoncé's 'Countdown' and Its Spot-on Snuggie Remake » Gossip - The bar for the YouTube music video recreation has officially been raised.
Last week, YouTube user kkpalmer1000 uploaded a strikingly well-done recreation of Beyoncé Knowles' rather complex music video for "Countdown." A young Asian man recreates all of B's moves in a cobalt blue Snuggie, which allows for surprisingly unrestrained movement. Though kkpalmer1000's scenes were clearly shot at a house and not a studio, the production values are truly impressive. Frame by frame, this guy's got his Beyoncé down.
Coincidentally, Beyoncé was accused of having copied and pasted a bunch of the dance moves featured in the video back when it debuted in October 2011. Famed Dutch choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker complained about the simliarities between Knowles' moves and those featured in two of her pieces from the '90s: "Achterland” and “Rosas danst Rosas."
