The Dancing Mom video is a viral internet clip which depicts Susan Heffley dancing to Löded Diper's performance during Plainview's Most Talented without their knowledge. It appears in Rodrick Rules and its film adaption as well as the online book.


Rodrick Rules[]

When Rodrick and his bandmates were angry about how Susan's video of their winter talent show performance came out, one of them remembered that it was going to air live on TV the day after. Rodrick's bandmates came to his house to watch the three-hour program. According to Greg, the school actually did a decent job capturing the show.

However, when it got to Löded Diper's performance, Susan started dancing onstage and whoever was holding the camera zoomed in on her and kept it on her for the rest of the song. The video of Susan dancing was posted on the internet and became very popular—as a result of the video basically going viral, everyone discovered who Löded Diper were and Rodrick became known as "The drummer from the 'Dancing Mom' video."

Greg admitted that some people were giving him kind of a hard time about it at the middle school, he wasn't nearly as embarrassed about it as Rodrick was (it helps that Greg wasn't actually in the video with his older brother and their mom). Greg claims that Rodrick planned on hiding out in the basement until all the fuss about the video blew over.


  • In the Rodrick Rules (2011 film) it is known as "Lame Band with Crazy Mom Dancing!!!" and it was uploaded onto the website YouTube by Greg Heffley.
  • It's unknown why Susan would dance to heavy metal music. However, It is also likely that it is to show support for Rodrick.
