The office holiday party presents two problems that can get you fired or at the very least embarrassed. One is: how do you have a good time while staying relatively sober and not saying something you’ll live to regret? The second problem is: how do you look sexy and festive without being inappropriate?

Jacobson wanted to leave nothing to chance, so he developed a choreographed routine to go along with the song–featuring his signature move, Double Dream Hands.
