Maybe you, like me, were worried that the electric slide was a thing of the past; that you’d never again have the opportunity to decide whether to drop down to one knee during that one part right before the kick-turn.

But fear not! The electric slide is not dead. And how do I know this? Because it was performed en masse (like God intended) at one President Barack Obama’s 50th birthday party. According to

The festivities ended at about midnight – but not before the Obama girls led partygoers through the “Electric Slide” and the Dougie dance routine (which [Charles] Barkley helped [Tom] Hanks perfect).

Of course, we all know who was leading the Dougie, amiriteladies?
