Joanna Gaines Is Rolling Back To The '80s In This Heartwarming Clip

The week between Christmas and the new year has a reputation of being a bit of a blur. The holiday hustle has simmered and there are leftovers to enjoy, returns to be made, decorating to be undone, and new gifts to play with.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that some of your favorite celebrities spend this week much like you do, after all, they get presents, too. Some of them even grace us with social media posts, offering a glimpse into their own post-holiday week. However, former host of HGTV's "Fixer Upper" and head of the growing Magnolia Empire, Joanna Gaines, may have won the internet with a video post showing off her new gift — roller skates. 

Gaines posted a video to Instagram showing off her new skates, scored with a full-scale 80's tune — and it's a proper heart-melter. We feel that this tribute to some of the best elements of the '80s is a gift, and 371,000 fans who have tapped that famous Instagram heart are in agreement.

The perfect ballad for an epic video

"I'm having an 80's flashback!" Joanna Gaines wrote in the caption of her roller-skating video on Instagram. "I got a pair of skates for Christmas, and minus the goats and the cattle guard and the manure, I felt like I was back in the roller rink all over again!" As the upbeat 80s song "We Built This City" by Starship plays, several clips show Gaines on her skates, along with who, we are assuming, are her daughters, on rollerblades. The trio is shown gliding around on their new wheels features a wheeled trek across a cattle guard, several cameos from some skittish goats, and a few failed, but definitely fun, attempts at an under-the-legs move. 

Fans are falling in love with this video, with 3,860 comments consisting of heart-eye and laughing emojis, along with sentiments like "I love everything about this & the song was my favorite roller skating song!" Some users found the video funny, calling for the girls to "duck" to get properly under each other's legs, while others were hit with nostalgia, sharing "Yes get your skate on! I at 47 just got another pair for Christmas!!!! Having 80's Flashbacks & Loving it!"

One user suggests the return of skating rinks, praising the 1980s as "one of the best decades." While we can't confirm this statement of the 80s to be true, we are certainly open to the notion of bringing back the skating rink, as it might be just what the doctor ordered for 2022.
