WATCH: Spontaneous Mass Twerking Event Erupts on Miami Beach
Continuing in our This Is America series, in which we analyze the perplexing and, arguably, alarming state of American youth pop culture, particularly of the urban variety, I present to you a mass twerking event (MTE) that erupted in the Miami area during Spring Break.
Three young women begin the festivities by shaking their posteriors in front of a city bus for unclear reasons. Perhaps sniffing out the pheromones in the air, they are then joined by scores of other young ladies.
It appears to be a modern twist on some form of primal mating ritual.
A fight breaks out, which briefly interrupts the footage, and then we return once more to the twerking crowd, this time much larger, consisting of literally dozens, perhaps hundreds, of young women gyrating on the streets.
It's enough to drive an anthropologist wild.
