There's a dance crazy going on.

Silentó’s new song 'Watch me (Whip/Nae Nae)' has caused a complete Internet meltdown. With the hashtag #WatchMeNaeNae trending over Vine, Twitter, and even Tumblr, there have been an obscene amount of attempts at recreating these 'fresh' moves.  

It's pretty clear from these videos that 'Watch me (Whip/Nae Nae)' isn’t the dance style for everyone; especially with all that "bopping". 

 

Even cats are trying it.

Despite it only being his first official release, the dance trend that Silentó’s track has started looks like it will put the likes of Soulja Boy under some serious dance pressure. But, who knows; maybe they could both collaborate and form a "Crank That Nae Nae"? 

They may not be perfect, but we love it when people dance their hearts out. Keep whipping, people. Don't let anyone judge you. #WhipOn.
