The video starts with Olivia and Val at the bar, preparing for their performance in the “disco dance challenge.” Olivia is nervous, but she takes a shot and heads for the dance floor. The pair proceeds to show off a super fun routine featuring all sorts of retro moves.
As always, Olivia looks like she’s having a great time performing. There’s also an awesome interlude in which the backup dancers get a moment in the spotlight. The video ends with Val and Olivia happily crowd surfing.
