Watch Lady Gaga Do The Funky Viral Dance From Netflix Hit ‘Wednesday’
Add Lady Gaga to the ranks of TikTokers doing the funky viral dance inspired by Wednesday Addams in the hit Netflix series Wednesday.
On Thursday, Gaga posted a video of herself — dressed in black with braided hair, like Wednesday Addams always is — channeling the character’s goth moves from Episode 4 of Tim’s Addams Family spin-off. Burton.
The routine is to throw your head back, stare up with big staring eyes, and swing your arms side to side and up and down like a crank C-3PO. The Wednesday dance has taken over TikTok, where you’ll find plenty of variations, including one performed on ice skates and another in the style of a classical Indian dance.

Many of the takes feature Gaga’s song Bloody Mary (“I’m Gonna Dance Dance Dance With My Hands Hands Hands”), and the 13-time Grammy winner naturally opts for that soundtrack too. The lyrics match the stylized hand movements of the dance, while nodding to Wednesday’s loyal friend, Thing, a disembodied hand that plays a central role in the Netflix show and also guest stars in a number of TikTok dances.
On the show, Wednesday (played by Jenna Ortega, who choreographed the moves in real life) dances to The Cramps’ 1981 song Goo Goo Muck. The song has seen a major surge in popularity since the scene aired, marking The Cramps their first Billboard No. 1.
As my CNET colleague Joan E. Solsman reports, Wednesday is Netflix’s fifth most-watched show, in any language, and Gaga’s dance has so far been viewed 4.8 million times. If you, too, want to dance like everyone else is watching, you can check out the original scene from Wednesday below. But whatever you do, don’t blink.
