The talk of Twitter this week has been the resurfacing of a 2013 dance track video featuring Marvin Gaye‘s adopted and eldest son, Marvin Gaye III. The struggle apparent in the video has caused a gamut of reactions, and we’ve dug in to find the best responses.

The track “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” featuring D’Extra Wiley is a dance number that, for what it’s worth, sounds similar to other songs in the “oontz oontz oontz” lane although the vocals are a bit understated. Not for nothing, Gaye gets props for making his wife, Wendy Gaye, the love interest in the video but that hasn’t stopped folks from frying the clip online.

It isn’t known why the song has managed to make its way back to prominence, and it appears that the venture was self-funded by Gaye via his own imprint. It also the only track Gaye has that appears online in streaming services.

We’ve collected the reactions below, along with the video for research purposes.
