Over the past 24 hours, Apple CEO Tim Cook alerted investors that the company would miss its revenue targets, a North Korean diplomat was reported to have defected to Italy, Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House, and China landed a goddamn probe on the far side of the fuckin’ moon. But for whatever reason, what’s lighting up Twitter at the moment is, uh, this clip of freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a roof when she was in college.
Right-wing Twitter is irked about it.
The 31-second video appears to be a couple of clips spliced together from a YouTube video posted in 2010 with new music and a LiveLeak watermark added. The original upload is a 4:20-long (!!!) montage of several Boston University students (including Ocasio-Cortez, who graduated from the school in 2011) dancing to Phoenix’s “Lisztomania” in an apparent homage to this The Breakfast Club mashup video.
