After nearly 5 hours of being stuck in a traffic jam, Wendy Chupp Gossett got out of the car and danced to the Backstreet Boys.


CBS Denver shared a video on Facebook showing the mother in the moment of recreating the hit musical film “La La Land” while stuck in traffic in Colorado.


Her son doesn’t seem impressed though as he stayed put inside the car.

“We had been sitting for 4.5 hours in what looked like a zombie apocalypse on I-25 between Denver and Colorado Springs,” Wendy Chupp Gossett said in the video. “Worst back up in I-25 history!”



When the Backstreet Boys came on, she turned up the volume, got out of the car and showed off some dance moves.

“Oh boy,” someone can be heard saying in the video. Amused, some commuters got out and recorded Gossett breaking into a dance routine.


“I was trying to get a real life La La Land!” Gossett said.

Her son doesn’t seem impressed though as he stayed put inside the car. “Maybe if it hadn’t been the Backstreet boys he would have been happier!” CBS4 quoted Gossett as saying.

Gossett and her son made it safely from Denver to Pueblo after hours of being stuck in traffic.



In another traffic jam, a woman drew people’s attention after breaking into a dance routine. The “show” took place on 1-65 en-route north out of Alabama.

Lisa Moot’s dance moves were filmed by her husband, who later posted the video on social media.

Lisa, who is from Nashville, Tennessee, was sitting in her car with her husband, Lee Smoot, waiting for the congestion on the road to clear when Beastie Boy’s “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” played on their stereo.

Smoot was able to bust out some impressive dance moves, even within the confines of her car.

But the real performance did not start until Me Too by Meghan Trainor began playing. Viewers saw Lisa’s spectacular dance moves without any restrictions that she faced during her first performance sitting in her car seat.
