Do you remember when the Nae Nae dance was all the rage?
Most people are now doing some kind of crazy dance just because they see everyone else doing it.
In contrast, the ‘Nae Nae’ was a worldwide phenomenon from 2013 to 2015, and even your grandma probably did at least one.
Granted, not everyone’s grandmother would have as much to say about the ‘Nae Nae’ as Grandma Mary and her sisters did in a YouTube video.
They first called it the ‘Na Na.’ When her other sister brings it up, one of the sisters responds confusedly, ‘Na Na is grandmother.’
To demonstrate to Grandma Mary and her other sister what she was talking about, one of the sisters decided to open a video on their phones.
A video of a sizable gathering of men dancing to the song is brought up.Grandma Mary explains, ‘Yeah, that you’ll fall and break your hip with that.’
They appear to be pretty impressed when a girl appears on video before they notice someone else.
They continued by commenting on how ‘sweet’ it is that everyone gathers around one person to dance before taking turns.We can’t handle it, Grandma Mary says. We’ll become breathless.
I’ll also pass away.Her sister responds, ‘No, I can make that move.’ Oh, you can’t! Grandma Mary retorts sharply.
The Three Golden Sisters made the decision to test their dance prowess and see how far they could go.And they performed admirably.But ultimately Grandma Mary had had enough.
To be completely honest, I greatly prefer watching these women perform the Nae Nae to anyone else!
The Nae Nae is a dance that involves swaying from side to side while holding one arm in the other, according to Wikipedia.
The term is thought to have been created by Atlanta hip-hop duo We Are Toonz with their song ‘Drop That NaeNae’ in 2013.
We Are Toonz group member Callamar said, ‘It’s basically just based on a ratchet girl in the club dancing sort of goofy and the best girl to explain it is Sheneneh from ‘Martin.
The song went viral and caught on like wildfire. The 2015 single ‘Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” by rapper Silentó, which included the Nae Nae and other dance routines in its music video, brought it back into fashion.’
