“Hey Ya!” is 10 years old, which means Speakerboxxx/The Love Below has been out for a decade, which means you’re old. André 3000’s timeless ode to making you cumma was released as a single on September 9, 2003, and 10 years later, its legacy is firmly set as one of the most purely enjoyable songs of all-time. So many bar mitzvahs.

Much of the song’s popularity is tied into its impossibly perfect music video, which taught the word to “shake it like a Polaroid picture.” In honor of Outkast‘s “Hey Ya!” let’s take a look at 10 other classic dance moves that were popularized via music videos from the past decade. While listening to The Love Below, obviously.
