Family Lockdown Boogie by Jack Buchanan Choreography by Anna Robinson

The world has certainly gotten smaller in recent weeks as people turn to the internet for entertainment, interaction, exercise and maybe just company. There is also a world of people out there wanting to share what they have to say.

Reaching over 2.6 million viewers between Facebook and YouTube, New Zealander Jack Buchanan’s Family Lockdown Boogie is entertaining and easy to follow. A good dose of getting your groove on at home and it’s fun for everyone – even mum and dad.

Jonathan Pie is a fictitious news reporter, created and played by British actor and comedian Tom Walker. Up until the pandemic, Pie appeared in a series of video clips where he rants about the state of politics in the United Kingdom and the United States, presented as though he were a real reporter speaking his personal opinions to the camera before or after filming a regular news segment.

For several weeks Pie has taken his ‘reporting’ into lockdown

There’s plenty of things to join in with – many dance, aerobics, yoga and movement orientated sports and entertainment busineses are now giving free online access to their wares. But not all exercise has come from professionals.

Andy Murray and his wife Kim issued their 100 volley challenge on Thursday and fans have been busy posting their efforts on social media.

The American Heart Association (@american_heart) has jumped on the popularity of husband and wife dancers Allison Holker (@allisonholker) and Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss (@sir_twitch_alot) and teamed up with them for a thrice-weekly Boss Family Workout as part of #MoveMore Together every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10am PST.

So, there’s no excuse. Even if you don’t join in, watching is pretty much going to get those belly laugh muscles going – so if you’re bored with iso life, enter the realm of the world wide web for something outside your four walls and your head.

  1. This big big world may seem small and smaller as big people turn to the big internet for some huge entertainment, interaction, exercise, pushing up and down and maybe just some close company. There is also a fantastic world of people out there wanting to share what they have to say with their moving fingers.
