To say that the Netflix show “Wednesday” has brought the house down would be an understatement. It became the top trending series in over 80 countries, and Netflix says the dark coming-of-age comedy, starring the talented Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, has been watched around the globe for over 750 million hours.
It’s Only A Matter Of Time Before The Dance Takes Over TikTok
You might have caught a glimpse of a particular scene from the 8-episode series where Wednesday shows off her dance moves. Internet users are obsessed with those moves! Of course, they quickly became trendy on TikTok and had fans re-enacting the dance routine that this clever and cold-blooded girl performed during her time at Nevermore Academy. Nevermore is a place full of secrets and sarcastic outcasts, where she is doing her best to solve the mystery that embroiled her parents when they were young. Still haven’t witnessed that legendary dancing moment? Watch it now:
“I’m Gonna Dance Dance Dance With My Hands Hands Hands”
There’s one intriguing thing that “Addams Family” fans should be aware of before watching the reboot: expect the unexpected. Despite the fact that it still takes place in a big, dark mansion, it’s a completely new version of the heroine. Just spend a few minutes watching any of the episodes, and you’ll see a very different Wednesday as opposed to the one we’re all used to seeing. Jenna even tried her hand as a choreographer, getting inspired by some simple moves from old “Addams Family” scenes – and she nailed it. Ortega confessed that she was afraid of putting her moves to the test and was worried that it would be obvious she wasn’t good at dancing. But the internet has taken notice of her movements and gestures, and it’s safe to say they’re obsessed.

Toss back your head, look upward with wide eyes, and fling your arms side to side and up and down like a robot. Now, repeat those steps, and you’ve nailed the dance. The internet will definitely see millions of Wednesday Addams cosplay looks on every social media platform. If you’re sick of normal person dancing and want to try something new, study the moves below. Remember – whatever you do, don’t blink! LOL
What Was That Cool Song During The Dance Scene?
Actress Jena Ortega has become a TikTok star thanks to her new role, setting a new trend. The scene plays “Goo Goo Muck”, but it was clear that TikTok creators were more interested in performing Wednesday’s dance to the tune of Lady Gaga’s “Bloody Mary.” Like so many others, Gaga herself has gotten in on the trend. The singer posted a video of herself channeling the goth character’s freaky moves, and Gwen Stefani also joined the ranks of TikTokers doing the dance — watch her do the now-viral dance below:
COVID-19 Test Results While Filming
Reviews of Tim Burton’s “Addams Family” Spinoff have varied among the critics and the public, but everyone agrees on one thing: Jena’s unapologetically wacky dance scene was phenomenal. However, your opinion might change after learning that the 20-year-old actress was on set while having COVID-19 and kept it a secret. Jenna was sick and suffered from body aches like she’d been hit by a car, but she still did the dance scene in a crowded room of people, which many found irresponsible. She asked to redo it, but there was no time left. Still, the girl kept mum about her positive status in order to keep shooting.
Social media users around the globe were quick to criticize her decision. Fans were disappointed to learn that Jenna caught COVID-19 but still was shooting, and someone tweeted that it was a selfish decision. Why was Ortega allowed to keep filming? It seems that someone in charge, like Tim Burton, should have known better. Still, despite this controversy, “Wednesday” remains one of the most popular shows on Netflix today, and if you haven’t given it a watch, you should check it out ASAP.
