Gay comedian and actor Leslie Jordan took the internet by storm during the coronavirus lockdown and his antics haven’t stopped since he’s been allowed to roam the streets again.

The “Git Up dance challenge” is a thing that was apparently done a year or so ago and Jordan couldn’t help but participate – even if he is a little late.

The challenge involved doing a few basic square dancing steps set to Blanco Brown’s song, and stop me if you’ve figured this part out already, “The Git Up.”

If you are not as up-to-date with pop culture as a 65-year-old man, there’s a helpful demonstration of the actual dance before Jordan’s sidewalk version below.
