The Rockettes’ Top 10 ‘Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)’ Videos
By Kendra Callari
It’s official: Silentó’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” is the infectious dance craze taking the Internet by storm.
If you’re not sure of the technical moves this choreographed routine entails, here’s the breakdown. First, you whip (put your right arm in front of you with your fist clenched) and then, you nae nae (bring your “whip arm” above your head, slightly bent, while you rock your body from side to side).
Sounds easy enough, right? From Mr. Incredible tearing up the dance floor at The Magic Kingdom to Golden State Warriors basketball star Stephen Curry’s 3-year-old daughter Riley showing off her skills at her birthday party, here are the Rockettes’ picks for the 10 best videos of people mastering Silentó’s hit song and dance:
1. Riley Curry
Riley Curry, daughter of NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry, couldn’t help but bust the move during her third birthday party. Aww!
2. Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl
A tourist captured this incredible moment (no pun intended!) – the superhero duo dancing away at the Incredibles Super Dance Party in the Tomorrowland section of The Magic Kingdom.
3. Pregnant Nikki Taylor and Daughter Jaylyn
Nikki Taylor may be eight months pregnant, but that didn’t stop her from choreographing a rad dance routine with her 6-year-old daughter, Jaylyn.
4. Bugs Bunny and Friends
“What’s up, doc?!” Bugs Bunny and his other Looney Tunes mascots get their groove on at Six Flags Over Georgia.
5. T.J. Smith
Torrey Smith, NFL wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, posted this too-cute-to-handle video of his 1-year-old son doing the viral dance when the song was turned on in his playroom. Seriously, have you seen a baby more excited than this?!
6. Heaven King
Heaven King, who has made numerous appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show after her dance video (with her mama of course!) to Beyoncé’s “End of Time” went viral, may only be 4 years old, but the talented tot broke it down with her tiny dance troupe.
7. The Class of 2015 at Kahuku High and Intermediate School
It’s safe to say that this graduating class in Hawaii went out with a bang during their ceremony.
8. Josh and Austynn Samarco
This father-daughter duo is the ultimate dance team! While Austynn whips and nae nae’s like it’s her job, her dad kicks it old-school and busts out some freestyle moves like “The Carlton.”
9. Smalls the Corgie
Only an adorable pup like Smalls can make this dance move look easy as 1-2-3.
10. Dem Bague Boyz and Phoenix Lil’Mini
A flash mob at its best! Dem Bague Boys, an all-boy dance crew from California, and Phoeniz Lil’Mini, a 9-year-old dancer also from Cali, don’t disappoint the unexpecting crowd.
