What Is The Bernie Dance? The "Bernie Lean" Should Be Your Go-To Move If You're Feeling The Bern — VIDEO
The Democratic primaries are in full swing, and the race for the White House is really heating up. And lately, it especially seems as though the United States has been "feeling the Bern." The Democratic primaries are "Bernin' up," and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has some big recent wins to prove it. He's won seven states in a row — Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. So here is my formal call for all you Bernie fans: Show your support for Bernie by doing the Bernie dance!
The Bernie dance is basically a move where you put your head back and flail your arms around. The dance comes from the movie Weekend at Bernie's. In one scene, the seemingly-dead Bernie Lomax (played by Terry Kiser) is on the dance floor at a resort in the Virgin Islands leading a train of people. He has his head back and his arms flailing. The scene inspired a 2009 video for the song "Weekend At Bernie's Dance" by artist Tre-Doh, who reenacts the move in his video. It also inspired the release of Isa's single "Moving Like Berney," which made the dance move go viral. It really is a classic.
With the backstory cleared up, there are a few others out there who have made the same call to action. I see you.
First of all, here's one of Bernie Sanders dancing — except it's his own (entirely Photoshopped) rendition of Drake's popular "Hotline Bling."
Damn, Bernie, back at it again with those solid dance moves.
Some people have taken to Twitter to share their Bernie dance musings as well.
Sorry guys, but the Bernie dance has already been around for a few years! This guy definitely didn't create it, but good on him for taking it to the rally.
But this guy definitely knows how important it is to bring back the Bernie dance for Sanders.
The silent (Twitter) majority has spoken, and they want you to Bernie.
Sanders is currently running a tight race against his Democratic opponent, frontrunner Hillary Clinton. His delegate count is at 1,038 pledged delegates to her 1,289 delegates. And the next big primary is in New York on April 19 — an important state for both of them.
It's clear at this point that while Bernie has to keep winning those primaries, the only way for him to win the nomination is if his supporters start doing the Bernie big time at his rallies.
