That ‘wiggle song” that plays every time a Jello commercial airs on TV.
Here are the words:
You need an invite to the soiree.
You need a tu-tu to do ballet.
You need Latin to to seize the day.
But anyone can wiggle.
You need a license to drive a car.
You need lessons to play guitar.
You need a permit to do just about anything.
But anyone at anytime can wiggle.
Wiggle while your wrigglin’ free. Gonna giggle.
While you jiggle in a wigglin’ spree. Wiggle
Wiggle if your wrigglin’ free. Gonna giggle.
While you jiggle in a wrigglin’ spree. Wiggle.”
Jello Commercial Dancers
What I want to know is: Where are the dancers???
(You know, those slim-figured multi-talented contortionists who appear at the end of each Jello commercial.)
I’ve tried — unsuccessfully — to find a video which shows the Jello dancers in action.
They can place their bodies in such a wide range of shapes and positions.
And they do it so effortlessly.
I happened to see those same dancers on the Ellen show not long ago. But I can’t seem to locate any video for that either.
But, for some reason, no one’s really talking about the multi-talented Jello dancers.
What’s up with that? I, for one, would like to see more from them and I’d be interested in learning a bit more about the dancers themselves.
Guess I’m the only one…

Fun Jello Recipes
Make an incredible Jello Aquarium…
- 4 boxes of blue raspberry Jell-O or other blue-colored flavor
- Blue M&M’s
- Assorted gummi sharks and fish candies
1. Combine hot and cold water and Jell-O mix according to package directions.
2. Spray a mold or plastic bowl with vegetable shortening (for easy removal). Pour liquid Jell-O into mold.
3. Chill for 20 to 30 minutes. Press gummy sharks and fish and blue M&M’s into the Jell-O.
4. Return the Jell-O to the refrigerator. Chill for 3 to 4 hours.
Did you know you can make bubbles from Jello?…
- 1 part dish washing detergent
- 1 part gelatin powder, any flavor/color
- 8 to 10 parts warm water
Mix all gently as making suds will weaken the mixture.
You can’t talk about fun Jell-O recipes without including Jello shots…
Have You Seen The Human Slinky Yet?…
I recently saw a TV commercial, and then a print ad for the Hyundai Santa Fe. Each had the tagline: “…for whatever shape life takes.” At the bottom of the ad it said “featuring Pilobolus”. A quick search in Google landed me here where I learned that Pilobolus is “a major American dance company of international influence.” (Their homepage currently shows the Pilobolus Hyundai commercial.)
It gets better…
A video search for Pilobolus brought me full circle and helped to clarify the relationship these amazing dancers have with Ellen DeGeneres (as I alluded to above). Here’s a video from the Academy Awards Show that Ellen hosted… and yep, they were featured on the show. Here they are performing a unique tribute to the movie, Happy Feet.
There’s another talented dance group called Momix that is currently being featured in Hanes commercials.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
