Why we picked them: Move over, “Cupid Shuffle!” There’s a new dance craze, and this one is sweeping Walmarts across the country. The “Walmart Shuffle” is a brand-new remix, sung by Cupid himself, that has inspired employees of a North Carolina Walmart to dance it out in competition against other stores nationwide.

With more than 5.3 million views and counting on Facebook, this Walmart crew’s dance routine has now gone viral.

Dozens of Walmart stores showed off their best moves for a chance to win a free Cupid concert and meet-and-greet at their store location. Although the Winston-Salem associates did not officially win the contest because of their late submission, the recording artist still paid a visit this week thanks to their viral popularity!

The moves to the “Walmart Shuffle” are simple, but the key to a stellar shuffle is in the unity and coordination between the dancers, much like us Rockettes! 

Fun fact: The leader of the store shuffle, Ralphie Hollifield, has been breakdancing for 15 years and even appeared on MTV in 1991.

Rockette kicks (on a scale from 10 to 10!):
