Beyoncé’s “Countdown” video (released last night, October 7th) is a visual feast, and its star more than carries her (baby) weight on that end. After watching its debut, we immediately had to lay out its greatest wiggles, shivers, tics, ticks (she’s a clock, see!) and flails. And for a four-minute video, there are a slew of those, since Beyoncé is the kind of performer who crams in gawk-worthy entertainment by the millisecond.
Our tribute to the human gif that is Beyoncé is looping below.
