Serena Williams Teaches Random People How to Twerk and Its Amazing
"Squeeze those glutes. Engage your quads."
Inarguable fact: Serena Williams is maybe the greatest female tennis player of all time. And though we love her for her athleticism in the court, she's also got some serious moves outside the arena. The Grand Slam champ recently posted a video on her Snapchat of herself twerking while filming a commercial for Chase Bank in Coral Gables, Florida. Her goal: To teach her followers how to properly perform the dance move.
Within hours, the internet went crazy. And rightfully so! It isn't often that we get to see this side of the seemingly "all work, no play" tennis superstar. Williams starts off by confessing that she's well aware of what twerking really is, and that she's going to take this opportunity to teach us how to do it right.
"Squeeze those glutes. Engage your quads," she says while slowly dropping down into a deep squat. She even counts her movements out loud just so even beginners will find it easy to follow along. (Disclaimer: She makes it look easier than it actually is.)
As her lesson continues, people start to join in. The first guy who joins in lacks a certain finesse, and butchers the move entirely. But despite his epic fail, several other athletically challenged folks manged to brave their fears and gather around, doing the best they can to follow the tennis champ's instructions.
Um, how much do we wish we could have been a lucky passerby in this situation?! We would have totally joined in on all the fun. Check out the hilarious video below!
