This week, it feels like twerking officially jumped the shark. From Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMAs to Morgan Freeman explaining what twerking was live on HLN. You could say that Diplo helped usher twerking to the white community, what with “expressing yourself” went from being a huge viral craze that ended up contributing to a Colorado teacher getting fired. With the whole 100BPM “twerk” scene gaining steam in the dance music scene, now is the time to set some records – right? As you can see in the ad below, Diplo is planning on creating a “twerk wall” on Saturday during his set at Electric Zoo in an attempt to, as we were told, try and set (break?) the world record for most people twerking at the #samedamntime.
Hopefully he’s still taking submissions. All entrants must be 18+ and have their own way to get to Electric Zoo 2013. Maybe Diplo will be playing some new tracks from his forthcoming album?
My new album is called “white by default”
