Since its appearance, Netflix has not stopped delighting fans of movies and series, and the latest title that won over viewers is the series "Wednesday", which is on a great way to even become the most-watched series of all time on this platform.
The series actually follows a member of the well-known Addams family - their daughter Wednesday, played by 20-year-old Jenna Ortega. One of the scenes that became viral and keeps being shared on social networks is her dance choreography from the fourth episode.
Wednesday is shown at the prom with her would-be love Tyler Galpin (Hunter Doohan), where she amazes him with her unusual moves. While dancing to the hit "The Goo Goo Muck" by The Cramps, Jenna not only impressed Tyler but also viewers around the world, who claim to replay this scene over and over again, but also admit that it's why they started watching the series.
Thanks to Siouxsie Sioux, Bob Fosse’s Rich Man’s Frug, Lisa Loring, Lene Lovich, Denis Lavant, and archival footage of goths dancing in clubs in the 80’s. Helped me out on this one. https://t.co/zlxlv1JUW4 — Jenna Ortega (@jennaortega) November 25, 2022
Jenna revealed that she came up with the dance choreography herself
"I choreographed that myself!" Ortega said.
"I'm not a dancer and I'm sure that's obvious. I'd gotten the song ["Goo Goo Muck" by The Cramps] about a week before and I just pulled from whatever I could." As Ortega pointed out, her body hurt that day "as if she had been run over by a car", and as soon as she got a positive test, she went into isolation.
What the viewers now have the opportunity to see is her first attempt at dancing, which she later did not repeat due to illness, but she still achieved enormous popularity with it. Jenna's dance, which has millions of views, was also noticed by Lady Gaga, while the young actress was followed by as many as 10 million followers on Instagram in just 10 days.
The "Wednesday" series is directed by Tim Burton and has been breaking all records since its premiere. In two weeks, it collected 752.52 million hours of views and is the most-watched series in the English language. At the same time, it is also in the running to become the most-watched Netflix series ever - which exceeded one billion hours of viewing in the first month of its release.
In front of "Wednesday" are currently the South Korean hit "Squid Game" (1.65 billion hours), in second place is the fourth season of the series "Stranger Things" (1.35 billion), while in third place is the documentary about the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer (856 ,2 million) which, by all accounts, will soon reach the 4th place.
