Subway Commuters Come Together For A ‘Bodack Yellow’ Dance Party–And It’s Peak NYC

You can hate the public transportation system, you can hate how fabulous some people pretend to be, like bartenders who will give you a detailed, critical analysis of Woody Harrelson’s role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and how his character was pointless to the plot while the entire time you just want them to mix your drink and leave you alone.

But on the other hand, the city’s brutal way of life also has an amazing, communal side to it and there are certain things that can only happen in New York that are downright magical. Like a group of random strangers, upon hearing Cardi B.’s “Bodak Yellow” blasting in a subway, breaking out into dance together.

And at the risk of looking like this:

…I have to say the entire experience was LIT.

Someone put evidence of the wonderful phenomenon on Twitter and people were loving it.

The event was hailed as being “classic New York.”

And if you’ve ever spent some time in the city, then you’ll get what these people are talking about.

Because Times Square might be a hotspot for tourists, but it’s a dreaded warzone for any poor soul trying to just get to where they need to go.

But yeah, back to the happiness. It was nice to see that for a change.

People who participated in the dance-fest started picking themselves out in the video.

And if the MTA needed a piece of positive PR to get people excited about riding its service, they may have just found a winner, free of charge.

Not everyone was a fan of the song, however.

I have to admit the first time I heard it, I thought it was moronic. But thanks to the incessant nature of modern radio shoving tracks down your throat, I now enjoy listening to it.

I’d have to disagree with @crackdoubt, though.

This was far more entertaining than that romantic comedy.
