Need more of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s dancing? You’re in luck.
As you’ve probably heard by now, a ~scandalous~ video of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recreating the iconic dance from The Breakfast Club on a rooftop surfaced on Thursday. *gasp*
The video from 2010, in which she dances to Phoenix’s “Lisztomania,” began making the rounds on Thursday — the same day she was sworn into congress. Much to the dismay of right-wing critics who were appalled to see someone having fun, many people online were enamored by the footage. Instead of damaging her reputation, it only made Ocasio-Cortez seem cooler.
Now, thanks to the magic of the internet, you can see AOC, as she’s come to be known, dance to even more songs. The Twitter account @aoc_dances is setting the viral challenge meme to a bunch of other popular jams.
So far, Twitter user @leftistthot420, who runs the “AOC Dances To Every Song” account, has edited the Breakfast Club-inspired clip to songs by Prince, David Bowie, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, ABBA, and many other artists.
Though each song gives Ocasio-Cortez’s moves a different feel, the mashups all work ridiculously well. See for yourself.
If you’re single, Ocasio-Cortez’s video set to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” will make you want to remain so for the rest of your life. And if you’re not you’ll probably break up with your significant other moments after watching because she makes the single life look too damn fun.
Her dancing to Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual” has Carlton Banks shaking! (If either Ocasio-Cortez or Alfonso Ribeiro are reading this we’d love to see a collab at some point in the future.)
Don’t let your eyes play tricks on you. This next one isn’t that flawless scene from 13 Going on 30, it’s still Ocasio-Cortez. She’s freestyling to “Thriller”!
She also came out of her cage and did just fine, shook it like a polaroid picture, pretended she was in Mamma Mia, and celebrated being an all star.
The mashup pretty much works with any song — even ones from Animal Crossing — so if you have a request, chime in. The account owner has promised to continue doing this very important work after a short rest.
im going to bed, but when i wake up in a couple hours ill be back on my posting
