Prince released “Batdance” almost 25 years ago. This video shows just how ahead of the times he was.

Paul Wood was at his mother-in-law’s home in Oriente, Brazil, when he and his wife noticed vampire bats were attacking the family’s cattle.

Undeterred, Wood ventured out to search for the offending creatures of the night, but found only some harmless fruit bats nesting in an outhouse.

So naturally, he filmed them, flipped the footage upside-down, and created the delightful video you see before you.

Feel free to mute our version and soundtrack with the song of your choosing. Daft Punk’s “Lose Yourself to Dance” has been an office favorite.
