"All is right with the world." I utter that sentiment every single time Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" comes on the radio. It doesn't matter how bad of a day I'm having, what type of weather is billowing outside, or how painstakingly clear it continues to become that I am never going to star on ABC's next season of The Bachelorette — "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" is always there for me. With its energetic beats, addictive rhymes, and Smith's unremitting swagger, it is scientifically impossible for one to feel anything but elated when listening to this jam [Disclaimer: The preceding sentence is in no way, shape, or form based on actual science. I think my opinions are usually on point, though.] Never one to slack on a visual masterpiece, Smith's music video for his upbeat hit is truly something to behold.
I recently revisited said masterpiece, and swelled with joy as I was transported from dance floors, to Egypt, to islands, and New York, all while being granted the absolute gift on Smith's unwavering bliss and the most wonderfully loud outfits imaginable.
