PEOPLE WATCHING BBC News earlier got something a little different

Earlier this week, a street dancer was spotted busting a move to the BBC News theme tune in London’s Leicester Square.

(Who hasn’t had a little boogie to the BBC news theme, in fairness. Just us? OK.)

A video of his routine went viral after Polish journalist Jakub Krupa posted it on Twitter, and the man was later identified as dancer Corville Cuffy.

In response, the BBC did something very sound – they invited him on the BBC News channel, played the theme tune, and let him dance away to close out the show:

Cuffy said he’d been “doing it for years” because it’s the last song people would expect him to dance to. He’s got that right, anyway.

The segue was unexpected, but warmly welcomed:

Just the kind of joyful thing we love to see of a Friday evening. God bless us, every one!
