"Do you remember/21st night of September?" Earth, Wind & Fire sings at the onset of its 1978 hit "September."

Comedian Demi Adejuyigbe sure does, and each year he marks the occasion by recording a new, elaborate dance piece soundtracked by the song.

Here he is in 2020:

And 2019:

And 2018:

And... you get the idea.

This year, as expected, is no different, with Adejuyigbe releasing what is easily his most elaborate set piece to date. So elaborate, in fact, that he even attracted the attention of the music legends who have repeatedly scored his "Groundhog's Day"-esque pursuit.

As in past years, Adejuyigbe has embraced the video release as a means to raise funds for different charities, with this year's proceeds being donated to climate justice organization Imagine Water Works, abortion nonprofit West Fund and climate change advocacy group Sunrise Movement. Donations can be made online here.
