This Video Of Kids Introducing Themselves Is Now A Huge Meme

"Hi, my name's Catrina!"

Posted on

People have recently discovered — and become obsessed with — this insane intro to the 1984 British children's show Emu's All Live Pink Windmill Show. In the video, a bunch of extremely eager kids scream out their names in greeting before executing a ~truly~ inspiring dance routine.

I'M CRYING I FOUND THE FULL VIDEO AND IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN THE 20 SECOND VERSION!!!!!

The Facebook page Instant Regret seems to have first brought attention to this masterpiece. They uploaded it on Nov. 27 with the caption "When a new person starts at work." It now has millions of views.

One Twitter user then helped it go viral, uploading it with the caption "Being greeted by the Lush staff."

Lush, looking to capitalize, embraced the comparison and re-created it.

Hugh Harper, an OG "Windmill Kid" tracked down by BuzzFeed News, was NOT impressed by Lush's version. He said it was "riddled with basic inconsistencies."

Still, Twitter users are obsessed with the video and are picking out their people.

.@ItsMeNiallN tag yourself. I’m this girl.

Like this "cool mom."

@jooshnoosh @ItsMeNiallN I'm not like a regular mom, I'm a cool mom!

By far, the crowd favorite is Joe — most likely because of his jaw-dropping solo.

"And I'm Joe to you"...except for the rest of the time when I'm Sonia from Eastenders #isaidit #pinkwindmill

His solo ends dramatically, with a masterful fall to the grass.

Green tights have NEVER looked so good.

@BenMurph33 @ItsMeNiallN Joe's solo is phenominal

"He's not just a performer," this person astutely observed, "he's an artist."

@BenMurph33 @ItsMeNiallN he's not just a performer, he's an artist.

And another just said she can "really relate."

@alicetwelvetree @ItsMeNiallN I feel like I really relate to this joe guy

The image of Joe's fall has ~obviously~ become a meme in itself.

The video is everywhere.

And the whole internet is basically the "kid behind Spencer."

@ItsMeNiallN The kid behind Spencer is exactly how I feel watching this...
