There's a new dance craze sweeping the nation and it's called The Apache

Filed under: Media, That's Entertainment

If YouTube is to be believed, the kids? They love dancing to "Apache." What is "Apache?" It's a song by the Sugarhill Gang (of "Rapper's Delight" fame) that apparently is irresistible to kids. Especially skinny kids with bad mullets and no chest hair.

The YouTube site has no less than 24 videos uploaded by (mostly) kids all dancing to "Apache." The dances are all variations on a theme and feature wiggling hips, some Saturday Night Fever-style pointing, and turning around in a circle while making a lassoing motion.

I'm a 36-year-old mother of two who obviously doesn't have her pulse on what's hot these days. I'm scratching my head.  Why Apache? Why so funny? Why is everyone doing the same dance? Is it from a TV show or movie? Can anyone fill me in on where this dance craze started?
