At midnight on 25 March 2020, New Zealand households entered a period of quarantine in a national effort to fight the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Actor/musician Jack Buchanan injected some much-needed joy into this strange new reality, thanks to an original song and dance routine dedicated to being 'locked down' with his nearest and dearest. After writing and recording the track Buchanan got his friend Anna Robinson to suggest some sweet moves. Within a week his lockdown family project had become an online sensation. Family Lockdown Boogie has been viewed over six million times.
Lock the door, hit the floor, it's the Family Lockdown Boogie/ Incarcerated, blood-related, it's the Family Lockdown Boogie...– Jack Buchanan
