You may or may not have seen Pete Buttigieg supporters doing his official campaign dance routine set to Panic! At the Disco’s “High Hopes.” It’s extraordinarily cringeworthy and was begging for a parody. The comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade obliged, putting together a Michael Bloomberg dance called “Moves Like Bloomberg” and set to “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5.

Vulture explains that it was not taken at a Mike Bloomberg rally, and pointed out a number of high-profile figures who had retweeted it or commented on it, including Donald Trump Jr., Sebastian Gorka, and New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman.

Haberman came up with an explanation of why she interacted with the video:

So, Bloomberg campaigns are so routinely cringe-inducing that it was hard to tell it was a parody? Will Snopes be fact-checking this one?

We’re willing to cut Haberman and the others some slack; that Pete Buttigieg dance looks a lot like a parody too, but it’s all too real.
