Krystal Ball, co-host of HillTV’s “Rising,” seems to be threatening to do the Pete Buttigieg “High Hopes” dance Tuesday morning.
Alright twitter, you’ve left us no choice. @esaagar and I will cover the world’s cringiest trend, Pete’s #highhopes dance and what it says about the empty promises and crushing failures of neoliberalism. Who has had the best/funniest take online today?

What is it? It’s a dance set to Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes” that’s getting people fired up at Pete Buttigieg get-togethers. It was caught on video and looks like this:

To me it looks like something an HR manager would come up with to boost team member morale.

It always reminds me of the Walmart cheer – soulcrushing forced enthusiasm that only works because there's a bunch of money and power driving people to go along with it

I’m frantically trying to think of the scorchingest burn to make about the people doing the dance but if I’m being dead honest there is nothing I can say that will embarrass them more than the fact that that’s what they’re doing with their lives.

Most privileged, arrogant campaign around. Manifest destiny in the lyrics suits that empty suit perfectly.

Someone who graduated Harvard & worked at McKinsey thought that song was a great idea.
So much damage is being done in our society by allowing these dunce factories to supposedly define someone's credibility.
Time to start exposing these institutions as the farce that they are.
