Serena Williams was recently on set for some commercial. That’s not important, except that she seems to have a fair amount of downtime. Enough, at least, to produce about five minutes of random phone footage that includes tutorials on how to twerk (“squeeze the glutes, engage the quads”) and milly rock (“it’s really about the face”).

Serena Williams does not teach you how to dab (“that is out of style now”). She likes positive feedback, she is tired, she is tired of being silly. This video could have been a masterpiece if only she and her camera-wielding friend had turned the phone horizontally. To know your heroes is to see their flaws.
