    Lol, can't lie that's some intoxicating enthusiasm you've got there,
    but like the above have said, its looks really stupid, especially when done in the UK ... i dont see many people pulling out the dab at events really, doesn't really fit with the UK music scene, and american rap/hip-hop is not anywhere near as good as it used to be.
    how is it stupid it's just fun body language...

    I must confess, I did a dab on the stage while at graduation ceremony. Unfortunately, I will not share the video
    What uni did you graduate from? I want to know because I've probably seen it (if it is you).

    you've got a point, sadly when i think of dabbing i think of retarded american rappers who cant even speak english, and as a listener of rap i think they're kind of harming the genre. Due to the rappers that promote dabbing, and those rappers being retarded, i see dabbing as a little stupid, its also done by a lot of stupid ppl IMO, who try and think they're funny when they're not. Also why did they have to call it dabbing when dabbing also had a meaning.. when people first started saying dabbing i thought they meant it as dabbing hash oil, until i was told someone thought itll be a good idea to name a dance move after something that already had a meaning.

    but i get your point, it a move at the end of the day.

    Seems quite common these days. I'm pretty indifferent to it but if people love it, then great!

    I do it for a piss take not even the rappers lol just cuz it looks fly on the right people and funny on others. I didnt even know it was a thing until I saw the video likes mths after I knew ppl dabbed. Idk I think it shows so much "swag" but of course people overdo **** like Bieber ruined the word swag lol which was fine...there's no other word to define what swag does -___- but thats cuz they dont have the swag. If they did it would never hav got ruined. :yy:
