What's up, y'all? My name is Dila Lopez. We are Death's Sea Crew and we are going to show you how to do Diversity's Transformer. So first you have to pick eight friends. You need at least eight people to do this. The head of the team is going to be in the front. At the front of the arrow. You're going to have Vive, or whoever you want to the left. Michael is to my right. Ester just over his right shoulder. And Sierra and Charlie are just over their shoulders. And you need somebody directly behind you who can do a handstand. And another person behind you who has strong abs. So here we go. First thing is four heartbeats. It goes five, six, seven, eight. Boom, boom. Boom, boom. Boom, boom. Boom, boom. And then Michael and Vive are going to transform first. Five, six, seven, eight. They move. Step and step. They go down on three, four. Next you have Sierra and Ester. They come out. Step. Step. And step. And they lean back. They become the legs of the transformer. Next you have Alice who comes and does a handstand. Yep. Pick her up. There you go. And then you have Melissa who comes through. Through the legs. She becomes the little alien on the body of the transformer. Boom. There you go. Then now Charlie goes behind. We open up our arms. And then we lock it in on boom. Then the right leg moves first. Boom. You punch to your left. The left leg moves. Boom. Punch with your right. Right leg. Boom. And then left. Boom. That's the Diversity Transformer. Let's do it in real time.
