I love celebrating obscure holidays… and April 17 (2014) is
National High Five Day!
High Five Day is the THIRD THURSDAY of April. So go and high five some people… or ALL THE PEOPLE!
Use the following tag on social media if you’re talking about it (or sharing this link): #NH5D
To celebrate, I give you 5 of the best high fives in film and television:
5. Barney Stinson
How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM)
His high fives are legen – – – dary.
4. Jim and Pam
The Office (US)
Jim and Pam have celebrated their awesome team-up on numerous occasions by giving each other an office air five.
The Breakfast Club
Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…
Andrew Clark: …and an athlete…
Allison Reynolds: …and a basket case…
Claire Standish: …a princess…
John Bender: …and a criminal…
Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.
2. The Todd
The Scrubs wiki puts it best: “The Todd enjoys giving and receiving high-fives, putting them in second place behind sex. He will give any type of high-five to anyone for any reason. He is very adamant about being the only person who gives out high-fives.”
1. Top Gun
(well… ’nuff said except for that part where I leave you with a silly-awesome video. Thank you They Might Be Giants for being amazing. OH- and for writing/performing a song that fits here perfectly)
