Today has been arbitrarily declared International Happiness Day by the great PR gods in the sky, and by complete coincidence that most happy of things, Christopher Walken dancing, has been celebrated in a glorious supercut.

Scroll down for the video

You are probably familiar with the actor's silky moves in Fat Boy Slim's Weapon of Choice video, but Walken has been sashaying his way through cinema for more than 30 years now, having started out as a musical theatre dancer before moving into acting
