So what do you get when you take Google’s upcoming mobile platform update, Nestle chocolate KitKat candies and the funky C + C band from the ’90s?
That’s easy. You get a rumor that the big G will start unleashing the new Android KitKat operating system on Friday, October 18.
And how, you may ask? Have a look at the photo below, spotted on the official KitKat Google+ page:
The photo was captioned with a message saying “Everybody dance now.” Also, the Android mascot is seen showing off some Saturday Night Fever-esque dance maneuver. Therefore, clearly we’re dealing with some cryptic meaning all this — and there’s a good chance that urban dance band C+C Music Factory has something to do with it.
Please, allow me to explain:
Alright, so the band broke out, so to speak, in 1990, with their song entitled “Everybody Dance Now.” You know it. Please refer to the video below for a refresher. Perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but how about the uncanny similarity between the Google OS version (4.4) in question and the length of the classic groover — yep, four minutes and four seconds (4:04.)
If that’s not enough for you, then it should also be known that the song was released on October 18 in 1990. That date is in two days, which based on some recent KitKat leaks and rumors, could be entirely legitimate.
