EXCLUSIVE: An Interview with the Animated March Madness Dancing Things

A10Talk was able to land an exclusive interview with the dancing animated things that CBS has been featuring prominently throughout this year’s March Madness. Below, read the transcript of the interview to learn unique insights about the pixels that have been dancing their way into America’s hearts the past few weeks! 

A10Talk: To start off, why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself. 

Dancing Guys: *stand completely motionless, looking like 16 turned off robots*

A10 Talk: It’s okay, you can take some time to get comfortable. Let’s start with something easy. Where are you from?

Dancing Guys: *continue to stand completely motionless*

A10Talk: Ok, seems like you don’t want to discuss that. Do you want to talk about how you all got this opportunity with CBS? 

Dancing Guys: *still unresponsive*

A10Talk: Um, okay, well this is weird. Let’s start with an easy one. What even are you? 

Dancing Guys: *still nothing*

A10Talk: Okay this is ridiculous. Can you guys even talk? Do you guys even root for the teams? Do you even know what March Madness is?!?!? 

Dancing Guys: *all 16 simultaneously lift their heads and stare at the interviewer, but still do not speak or make any other movement*

A10Talk: Um, what *backs slowly towards the door*

Dancing Guys: *Begin dancing and slowly start moving towards interviewing in as menacing a manner as sixteen 2 foot tall featureless dancing creatures can possibly be. There is no music playing, yet they are all dancing to some ominous, shared beat in their head, moving as if they are one organism. The intentions are unknown, but they surely cannot be good*

A10Talk: Ok, this interview is over, thanks! *Sprints towards door in sheer terror and just barely manages to close it behind them before the dancing creatures can catch up and screams like a little girl, but hey, you would do the exact same thing*

Dancing guys: *Continue dancing*
