These Strangers Jamming Out to Shakira on the Subway Will Put a Smile on Your Face
‘Tis the season to put your guard down and slip your dancing shoes on.
Over the weekend, a crew of commuters that seemingly didn’t know each other turned what could have been any other banal ride into one of Madrid’s most epic dance parties. In the video below, one happy subway rider blasted Shakira and Carlos Vives’s “La Bicicleta,” and quickly proceeded to sing and dance along to the hit.
And while moments like these aren’t too rare in major metropolitan areas, this one put the icing on the cake. Seconds after the jam started, a group of young girls eagerly started dancing about the train and singing along. Think they were the only ones? As the song progressed and everyone realized this was nothing but an authentic, feel-good moment, nearly all passengers on board participated in the dance party and walked across the car to get a closer look.
Shakira herself caught wind of the viral video and shared it on her own Facebook page, explaining that she felt transported while watching the clip. “I was in that car, and I had a great time. I got off the train smiling,” she wrote. “The passenger’s words and moments like these are what make music make sense!”
