Even the deputy Labour leader is trying his hand at the ‘dabbing’ victory dance used by sports stars around the world.
The “dab” dance is a phenomenon that has caught on around the world.
Sporting stars such as American quarterback Cam Newton, tennis player Victoria Azarenka and a host of English football players have adopted the move to celebrate their achievements.
Now, it seems it has spread its tentacles – or rather arms – to the not-so-cool confines of the House of Commons.
Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson, 50, was seen at Prime Ministers Questions performing what appeared to be a dab move behind Jeremy Corbyn as he celebrated the Labour leader’s blasting of Theresa May over the NHS crisis.
The dab has its origins in the Atlanta hip-hop scene.
Here’s a five-step guide to perfecting the move.
1. Lift your arms out to your sides. Raise up on both arms so they are going straight out from your shoulders. Bend one arm towards your body – as if you are preparing to sneeze on your sleeve – and keep your other arm straight.
2. Tuck your forehead down towards the arm that is bent and touch your forehead to your elbow area as if you are sneezing into your sleeve or dabbing sweat off your brow. Keep the other arm straight.
3. After you bring your head in towards your elbow you can do a quick head bang motion – or two – before you straighten out your arm and switch sides. Quickly jolt your head forward towards your elbow.
4. You can repeat the dab many times on one side or switch sides. If you do switch sides, repeat the same dab movement on the other side with your other arm.
5. You can do the dab movement with your upper body and move your lower body however you like. You can hop around, walk or even wiggle your hips.
