Ruby is off today, so it falls to me to alert you to the weird things the internet has fallen in love with.

I love this stupid dancing Psyduck toy. Look at him. Look at him. My rotund and migraine-prone son has moves.

This is so rad. Alexa, play Wiggle by Jason Derulo.

The dancing Psyduck is a toy created by KFC China, which is running a Pokémon-themed promotion for Children’s Day on June 1st. It’s basically a Happy Meal toy, but it bounced up and down on a little motor, waving its arms up and down.

The toy has gone viral on Weibo, China’s largest social media platform. Because of this, stocks of the toy have dried up. Individual units have been found for resale online with prices going as high as US$200. As videos find their way onto Twitter and TikTok, Dancing Psyduck Mania is now taking hold in the West as well.

Apparently, the other toy in the promotion is a Pikachu, but who cares about that when Dancing Psyduck is clearly the star of the show.

People are modding him:

He’s communicating important messages.

He’s even winning at poker.

Truly magnificent. Bring him to Australia, I must have one.
