This Guy's Motivational Dance Videos Are Brightening Days All Over The Internet ❤
Twitter

Donte Colley is a name you probably don't know but you'll probably be a fan by the time this article is over. The 21-year-old Canadian man is blessed with an amazing ability to dance, a desire to make people smile, and access to a smartphone. He combined his talents in a way that has the internet riding good vibes into 2019.


He calls what he does "motivational dance videos" and it's kind of a trip to explain. The basic premise is this: Donte is gonna bust a move. It will be amazing. As he dances, his moves combine with a motivational message, some emojis and a killer soundtrack (he once danced up a storm to the Law & Order theme). All combined, it's like having a meme bust a motivational twerk across your day.

So ... it's amazing and exactly the kind of thing we need in our lives right now.


The videos didn't start out for all of the internet to see at first. Believe it or not, he initially put all this work in just to make a few friends smile.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, he explained how making people happy is at the core of what he is trying to do:

"When I first started making videos I was getting positive feedback from my friends who would message me and be like 'this made me smile today' so it just kind of motivated me more to keep making them... Social media can become such a grey, overwhelming and kind of defeating platform just because it's seen as everybody's highlight reel and it's like everybody's living their best lives, and that can kind of make us question our purpose from time to time. So I guess I make these videos because I just like making people feel good. It makes it feel worth doing, and that's all I could ever ask for. To make people feel better especially because we all go through lows in our lives and we all have our own struggles that we deal with on a day to day, so just being able to bring some light or joy to somebody, it makes it feel worth doing. It definitely recharges me and motivates me more to keep going."

Here are some more of our favorite videos. Brace yourself for some serious feel-good energy.




His most recent video is a ridiculously elaborate F-The-Haters set to the Sailor Moon intro. It's magical.


One of his videos went viral not too long ago and his following jumped massively. It may seem silly but the videos really seem to strike a chord with people. Each video has thousands of likes and comments! Donte has found himself with over 140 thousand people looking to him for his motivational moves. You can join them on his profile here.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
