“Macarena” was thee song when we were all little ones. Who else remembers doing the “Macarena” at school assemblies, First Communion parties, birthday parties, and anywhere else? We even saw Hillary Clinton dancing the “Macarena” at the 1996 DNC. We were masters at the wildly popular dance. We could do it in our dreams. Decades after the songs release, Bad Bunny is finally getting in on the original TikTok dance craze and it’s something to behold.
The song was first performed in 1995 and was released to the rest of the world in 1996. Bad Bunny was born in 1994 so it makes sense that the dance might be a new thing for him. Yet, the Vogue video with Bad Bunny recreating the video is glorious.
Leave it to Vogue to create a new video for “Macarena” while still nailing the ‘90s fashion vibes with a very modern twist. Fashion is cyclical and the video is proof that even styles we dreaded remembering in the early 2000s are hot and new again.
Bad Bunny fans are living for this evolution in San Benito’s musical repertoire. The nostalgic journey this Vogue video takes you on will get you on your feet and moving your body because muscle memory for this dance is real.
Look at Bad Bunny just creating things out of nowhere. This is what we on social media call a joke so calm down before you start saying people don’t know what they are talking about.
Some people were less celebratory about the video. Now, we just have to figure out if it was secondhand embarrassment for Bad Bunny or embarrassment at remembering how wildly popular this dance craze was. Either way, we are here for this unexpected yet totally needed video.
