Henry Winkler teamed up with Chicken Shop Date host Amelia Dimoldenberg on the Golden Globes red carpet to recreate the viral dance from Wednesday.

Wednesday, the Addams Family spinoff starring Jenna Ortega as the titular teenager, was a bona fide sensation when it dropped on the streaming platform.

Beyond being generally well-received, it became Netflix‘s second most popular English-language series ever, surpassing Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and trailing just behind Stranger Things Season 4.

Its success can be credited to its viral dance scene, inspiring countless TikToks – with Lady Gaga even getting in on the trend.
