Things just got weird and amazing on set of 'The Good Place,' where one seasoned actor has taken on an Internet phenomenon.
Even if you don't know it by name, you've probably seen the floss before. It's 2018's answer to the dab or the Harlem shake, and what's so fascinating about it is that it's harder than it looks. It involves repeatedly swinging your arms, with clenched fists, from the back of their body to the front, on each side, while also swinging your hips in opposite directions.
Videos of the dance surged on social media after Russell Horning, or the "Backpack Kid," made it so popular that he was invited to perform the floss during a 'Saturday Night Live' performance of Katy Perry's song 'Swish Swish.'
Hopefully to appear on 'The Good Place,' videos just came out of Ted Danson learning the viral dance on set from costar William Harper Jackson, and it is incredibly entertaining.

Even costar Kristen Bell had to hop in and give him some guidance. Luckily, Danson started to get a hang of it, and Jameela Jamil apparently enjoyed the process just as much as us.
