Watch: Aya-Bambi, the Japanese dancing couple who will leave you hypnotised

Usually dressed in all black, edgy hairstyle, multiple facial piercing, dark makeup, and a deadpan expression mirrored on both faces, Aya Sato and her partner Bambi are anything but conventional.

Dancers, lovers, choreographers, and as their popularity soared, even models, Aya Sato and Bambi first began making waves online in 2012. Their unbelievably well-synchronized voguing left viewers slightly hypnotised. In 2014, a video of the duo taking a dance workshop went up on YouTube and 4 million views later, there was no looking back for Aya-Bambi, as their fans call them.

Voguing, which began on the streets of Harlem sometime in the '80s, isn't just about intricate and impossibly fast hand movements. It draws inspiration from Jazz, Ballet and Modern Dance; and is fashion, rebellion, and a political statement all rolled into one. For voguing, it is said, was started by those within the gay community.

Aya and Bambi got engaged in 2014, and their Instagram accounts, like their careers, is as chill as it gets.

In June 2015, they danced with Madonna in her single, B*tch I'm Madonna, thereby sealing their fame in the immortal sands of the big bad web. You know you've made it in the world when Madonna wants you in her dance crew.

That same month, with the US Supreme Court ruling in favour of marriage equality, Vogue, that high altar of all things fashion, shot a video titled 'Short White Wedding' where the two modelled as to-be-weds.

So if you're looking for something to cheer you up today, might we suggest the insane talent that is Aya-Bambi? Oh and yes, you're welcome.
