The internet's famous dancing baby from 1996 is getting a new look

https://www.cnn.com/style/article/danci ... index.html
f you were born before 1990, you may remember the 3D graphic of an almost-naked baby that danced on a loop to become one of the internet's earliest viral phenomenons. The strange-yet-sassy "Dancing Baby" began spreading via forwarded email chains in 1996 before it appeared on major news networks around the US and cha-chaed its way into the TV show "Ally McBeal" to remind the titular character of her ticking biological clock.

To make you feel even older, that (not real) child would now be 26 years old, using dating apps and -- presuming it's American -- figuring out how to purchase its own health insurance policy.

To celebrate the baby's journey into adulthood, the clunky GIF has gotten a new 3D-rendered overhaul thanks to its original creators, Michael Girard, Robert Lurye and John Chadwick, in collaboration with the Vienna-based creative group HFA-Studio. And in true 2022 style, the new dancing babies will be released as NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, next week.

I hated that Dancing Baby. And it was EVERYWHERE.

Nostalgic for more than one reason!
