This slow-mo footage of food dancing is all about that bass

Sound moves you in ways nothing else can—even if you're an inanimate object.

2014 has certainly been a year full of the unlikeliest of dancers, from senior citizens to Pentecostal church members to even local TV news reporters. Now, you can add inanimate food objects to that list.

While certainly delicious, things like Froot Loops cereal, eggs, and ketchup have never been celebrated for their dancing skills—until they came into direct contact with a speaker, that is.

BuzzFeedBlue recently put together a YouTube video of substances like cereal and milk, condiments, and even powder right onto a speaker. Once the bass-heavy music was turned on, these everyday kitchen staples suddenly came to life in beautiful slow-motion wonder.

While the speaker itself may be shot, it is a small price to pay for the ability to make ketchup this mesmerizing.

Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go and cry over the fact that Froot Loops cereal is a better dancer than I am.
