Yesterday’s pre-Presidential press conference with Trump was a bit head-scratching; wasn’t it?
In what should have been an attempt to instil confidence to a distressed nation (and entire planet), Trump instead to play the “I’m innocent and everyone else is wrong” card.
And with the inauguration fast approaching, we’re feeling a bit deflated and sad for our American friends.
But then we came across this video: an all-star cast of Hollywood heroes belting out Gloria Gaynor’s 1979 wonder “I Will Survive”, and it’s infectious.
Created by W Magazine, those channelling their inner disco queen include Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Matthew McConaughey, Chris Pine, Hailee Steinfeld, Felicity Jones, and Taraji P. Henson, and the stars of the season’s finest films.
Little did Gaynor know that her catchy disco track would resonate so significantly within our history, our culture, or artistically. Or better still: be an antidote for a grieving nation.
With an impending Trump presidency, we WILL survive!
