At some point in the near future, we’re going to see twerking involved with the national anthem or possibly the next presidential inauguration. The crazy part is, we won’t even think twice about it either.
Surfer Anastasia Ashley is the most recent to join the trend. Who knows what she was listening to on her headphones – vintage Ying Yang Twins, perhaps? – but whatever it was, the (Un)holy twerking spirit hit her and the rest was history.
Has anyone bothered to inquire how the pioneers of YouTube-era twerking, the Twerk Team, feel about the dance they helped make popular now turn into a cultural phenomenon in 2013? Do they view Miley Cyrus as Elvis and themselves as Little Richard? I feel like they are being pushed to the back burner and for our kids and grandkids, we cannot have this important fact in history be discarded as if it never happened.
