Chances are, almost everybody has either sung or performed the actions to The Village People's hit song YMCA once in their life.
And if you are one of the few who have not, your first chance could come at a live concert.
It was announced yesterday the renowned 1970s disco group will perform at New Plymouth's TSB Stadium on November 30 as part of a four-stop New Zealand tour.
New Plymouth District Council recreation and events manager Brent Thawley said he fondly remembered doing the YMCA dance in his younger days, and hoped people would embrace the group.
"I'm hoping people will see it as an opportunity to have a great, fun night out.
"I think it's the perfect pre-Christmas show," he said.
Mr Thawley said it had been looking for better ways to utilise the TSB Stadium.
"They approached us and they were looking for venues, so it's not something that we actively sought out," he said.
"However, we've got a venue and it's another way for us to get revenue out of that space. We're excited by the potential of having a good fun night out of it too."
Mr Thawley hoped people would turn up in their finest disco-wear, or as their favourite village person, and embrace the craziness of the group.
One person who definitely planned to attend was New Plymouth's Gisella Sklenars.
"I'm very excited to hear their songs of the past," she said.
"I went to Boney M when they came, so I'll have to go to The Village People."
More astounded than excited was Natasha Behrent.
"Good God, are they still alive?" she said.
Although New Plymouth's Scott Taylor wasn't overly enthused, he expected the folk at the YMCA would be "pumped" over the announcement.
The Village People have sold over 100 million albums and besides YMCA, are known for hits In the Navy and Macho Man.
