Watch NDP leader Jagmeet Singh slay this viral TikTok dance trend (VIDEO)

Singh's using smooth moves to signal young people to "make history in the next election."
On July 12, 2021, NDP leader and Burnaby South MP Jagmeet Singh took to TikTok to share his take on the "Alors On Danse" routine.

The "Alors On Danse" dance video has taken TikTok by storm — but it's not only teenagers and young adults who are copying the viral sensation. 

On July 12, New Democratic Party Leader and Burnaby South MP Jagmeet Singh took to the social media platform to share his take on the world-famous routine.  

The original video was created by a group of  friends who chose the slow-mo version of Belgian singer and rapper Stromae’s popular track "Alors on Danse." 

Usim E. Mang, the 19-year-old who shared the original content under his TikTok handle usimmango, now has over 118 million views, according to BuzzFeed News.

In his version, Singh appears in a grey sleeveless shirt in front of the group. He mimics the simple yet smooth moves by tugging at the corners of his shirt as well as gently shrugging his shoulders while moving his arms to the relaxed rhythm. 

The B.C. politician's video also reads "when they say young people don't vote" followed by "when you know they're going to make history in the next election."

A key part of the viral groove?

Tapping into that confident gaze at the camera, of course.
