Mario Gummy Bear Dance is a viral video and exploitable meme trend in which the Nintendo character Mario is animated to be doing the dance routine from the "The Gummy Bear" song. Originally a short video in 2021, it eventually grew into a wider trend and long-form video in 2022, with different edits and variations created by other fans on YouTube.


On June 17th, 2021, YouTuber and creator Bezkii uploaded the video "[SHORT VERSION] The Gummy Bear Song but Mario," which was only 30 seconds long. This version[1] would go on to inspire others as it racked up over 2.3 million views in one year (shown below).

A full year later, on June 17th, 2022, Bezkii would add another YouTube video[2] to their channel, this time being the longer version titled "[FULL VERSION] Mario in The Gummy Bear Song," which was extended into a full 2:30 in length and featuring numerous scene transitions that were not present in the first iteration. This video went on to receive over 213,000 views in two weeks (shown below).


The original shorter video inspired two key variations that were important in spreading the meme in both manner and context. The first variation came from the YouTuber TravisTheGamer[3] who uploaded a loop of the original video that went for the full 2:30 runtime of "The Gummy Bear Song," but he swapped out the original lyrics for an autotuned Mario voice saying "It's Me, A Mario." This version was uploaded on August 6th, 2021, and gained over 320,000 views in 10 months, as well as inspiring the next big variation of the formula (shown below).

On December 13th, 2021, the YouTube channel GummyDash[4] posted another full version video, this time featuring Luigi saying "I'm A Super Star" while including several different scene transitions. These scene transitions, such as having Luigi in a go-kart, mirror the timing and execution of the full Mario version, acting as a precursor. The Luigi-mode video went on to gain over 1 million views in just under seven months (shown below).

On June 20th, 2022, Twitter user HoboGuyCool posted a tweet[5] in which he tried to play off Mario Gummy Bear Dancing as a found footage type of video, using a different original animation than the one made by Bezkii, gaining over 10,000 likes in two days (shown below).

I was digging through some family videos and I found this video of me playing Mario 64.. hrmm.. kinda strange. Might want to add this one to the "Ice Berg"

Just a little bit more and the video will load

Yuri is one of the few men who decided to master pole dance. Look at the video how he manages pole acrobatics

Video: Kristina Polevaya

Yuri Proshin from Arkhangelsk chose a pylon instead of a barbell - in such an atypical way for men, he decided to maintain physical fitness. Acrobatics really requires stamina and agility. And let for the uninitiated, everything looks like a striptease - in fact, these are hard workouts in which all muscle groups are involved. Although without huge heels - nowhere.

Pole dance is a type of dance that uses one or two poles. The performance combines elements of choreography, gymnastics, and acrobatics. Often mistakenly confused with striptease.

Of course, you could go to the gym for strong muscles, but for the creative personality of Yuri Proshin - he works as an actor in the drama theater - it seemed too boring.

- The main difference from the pieces of iron is that you cannot choose the weight here. You are still working with your weight. Well, you can't get away from him. You have to lift yourself up, just in different positions.

All muscles are involved in pole dance. After a month of training, Yuri felt the result. So he was drawn into pole acrobatics. For the ninth month he has been training surrounded by girls. For Arkhangelsk, a man in such classes is a rarity, which is also confirmed by Nadezhda Istomina, head of the Soul Club studio:

- When Yura wrote, I remember sending this message to all my coaches: “Look, a boy wrote to us!” But I so wanted him to try himself, because for other cities it is normal that a man dances on a pole.

The coach gives Yuri a more difficult load. It is easier for men to perform the power elements of the dance. The main profession prepared Yuri for pole dance. As we have already said, he is a drama theater actor:

— And it helped me a lot that I had also encountered acrobatics before, and it seems that I have no problems with a sense of balance. I know how to fall safely, it also helped a lot. I’ll tell you a secret: in order to fall safely, you need to quickly lie down, says Yuri Proshin.

The actor has always loved the language of movement and dancing, but 20 cm high heels became a test...

- I thought, my God, how high. In fact, dance shoes, they are specially designed for this, and it is very comfortable to stand and walk on them. And there are elements that are really easier and safer to do in strips than just with a bare leg.

Hobbies are not the most common in male circles, but Yuri Proshin is not afraid of a wave of hate. Relatives accept all his hobbies.

- Friends support, mother supports, but does not understand why strips. At work, they got used to me that I was constantly doing something incomprehensible. So, they giggle, but in a kind way.

Earlier we told the story of hairdresser Nadezhda Semyonova, who at the age of 57 also decided to master pole acrobatics. She went to pole dance out of pure curiosity, but over time she was so carried away by this direction that she even installed a pole at home.

    Trained: politicians and pamphleteers

    scorched paws

    Original of this material
    © Kommersant-Vlast, 11/03/2003, "Political dances"

    Valery Panyushkin

    From time to time, politicians have to demonstrate that they are people too in order to be popular. They are forced to meet with mere mortals, shake hands with them, talk to them, sometimes even eat and drink in their presence. But, of course, the most humiliating thing is public dancing.

    Do you know how the bear is taught to dance?

    This could be put an end to, because everyone knows how to teach the bear to dance. A fire is made in the pit, a sheet of iron is placed on top of the fire, and a bear is led along the iron on a chain. When the fire begins to burn the bear's paws, the bear begins to bounce amusingly, and at that very time they play the balalaika, so that the bear's brain will forever link the balalaika rubbish with his bearish amusing bouncing.

    A few of these lessons, and you can show the dancing a bear at least at a fair, at least in a circus, at least in any other place where there is a high turnout of citizens and a large number of observers. The intelligentsia frowns, of course, at the sight of a dancing bear, but the people like it. People love to watch something humiliating.

    It's funny that every living creature that specializes in humiliation of one's own dignity sooner or later begins to see professionalism, art, and even some kind of humanistic mission in humiliation.

    Take, for example, strippers. These worthy girls, who dance for quite decent money even for a soloist of the Bolshoi Theater, like to talk in between dances. They sit at tables with wealthy clients, each with two or three champagne corks in their purse, which the bartender will exchange for money in the morning, and they talk. About how they invented a new number and how this number will finally bring the art of dance out of crisis. About what kind of cow over there is that new one with big boobs. About how much you have to work to work out the triple pirouette around the pole. They drink champagne, glass after glass, because the more they drink, the more they earn. And they are forgotten. And they themselves begin to believe that they really are ballerinas, and not just have nothing to pay for an apartment. And they lie recklessly: about the Vaganov School, about the international competition...

    It's the same with bears, I guess. I think that a bear whose paws are set on fire and taught to amusingly jump to a balalaika sooner or later begins to perceive its bouncing as an art and even as some kind of humanistic mission. After going through several fairs, the dancing bear begins to seriously believe that he had a rare lot - to make the people happy. The people are really cheerful, the people’s faces are red, the spirit of the nation is two arshins from the mouth, and the bear sincerely believes that all this hubbub around is a market economy and that the market is growing mainly due to the fact that the bear is dancing in the center of the market.

    Since this is the case, it is no wonder that the bear begins to feel proud. No wonder that every other animal is jealous of the bear and eager to dance in the middle of the bazaar, even if for this you need to put a chain around your neck and set your paws on fire. And the bear considers every animal dancing in the middle of the bazaar a goat. In the clumsy knees of his dance, the bear soon enough begins to see grace and even wisdom inherent in high art. Pride, grace and wisdom will blind the mind of a bear until until the owner pulls the chain and makes you hobble dejectedly into the cage. But even then the bear does not understand who he really is, but thinks that he was treated unfairly, exactly at the moment when justice triumphed.

    Oh, you're a farce toptygin with singed paws. Tell you that you are dancing to someone else's tune, so you will probably be offended and sue. Because it will be slander and damage to your business reputation.

    Well, in fairness, it’s really worth admitting that you, Toptygin, are dancing not to someone else’s tune, but to someone else’s balalaika, a magic instrument like “one stick, three strings, I am the master of the whole country.” Not sparing your paws, you dance a gypsy with an exit, thinking that a gypsy with an exit is an exit.
