var $el = $('.footer a').hop();

setTimeout(function() {
  $el.data('hop').move(100, 0, true);
}, 2000);

setTimeout(function() {
  // move to the top right of the page
  $el.hop({color:'#E91E63', radius: 400, borderColor: '#fff', borderWidth: 10}).data('hop').move('90%', 100, false);
}, 4000);

setTimeout(function() {
  // move to the 2nd button
  $('button:eq(1)').hop({radius: 150, color: '#fb8c00', borderColor: '#000'})                                
}, 6000);
