Coffee shops are often the go-to place for many people when they need to grab a quick caffeine fix or find a cozy spot to work or catch up with friends. But what if we told you that coffee shops could also be the backdrop for love connections and unexpected adventures? That’s exactly what the song “Coffee Shop Bop” by Sarah Maddack Bell is all about.
The song’s catchy tune and silly lyrics have made it a hit among kids, with even Kim Kardashian’s daughter covering it on social media. But what’s really capturing people’s attention is the video skit that Sarah created to go along with the song. In the skit, Sarah walks into a coffee shop and sees a girl with cool pants that make her want to dance. However, she’s stopped by a little voice in her head that warns her she might make things weird. Despite the warning, Sarah takes a chance and compliments the girl on her pants, which leads to a fun dance party between the two.
At its core, “Coffee Shop Bop” is a song about taking chances and stepping out of your comfort zone to connect with others. The little voice in Sarah’s head represents the fear and anxiety that often hold us back from making social connections. We’re afraid of being rejected, misunderstood, or simply making things awkward. But the song encourages us to embrace our unique qualities and take risks, even if it means breaking out into a dance in the middle of a coffee shop.
The song’s popularity also speaks to the power of social media and how it can turn a small song into a viral sensation. Sarah released the song back in November 2022, but it wasn’t until the video skit went viral that it really took off. The skit is not only adorable but also relatable, as many of us have probably had a moment where we’ve wanted to strike up a conversation with a stranger but let our fears hold us back.
In the end, “Coffee Shop Bop” is a lighthearted reminder that sometimes it’s okay to be silly and take chances. Who knows, you might just end up making a new friend or finding a new favorite dance partner. So the next time you’re in a coffee shop and you see someone with cool pants, don’t be afraid to speak up and let them know. You never know where it might lead.
Go compliment a stranger today. I GUARANTEE it will turn into a dance party.
I hopped into a coffee shop
And then my jaw dropped in shock
When I saw a girl who had cool pants.
They made me want to dance.
I started to advance to tell her
Until I hear a little voice say, “Stop!
You’re gonna make it weird for everyone in here
And you’re going to break her flow
So you better just not.”
I said, “You’re really dumb!”
And then she looked up and thought
That I was telling her that she was really dumb.
I started to explain and then I said, “I love your pants
And I was previously talking to my brain.”
She said, “I understand.
I made this pair of pants by hand
And I believe that it is time for us to dance!”
And that is what we did.
We had a great time
And all because I’d given a stranger a compliment.
