12 Hilarious Twerk Fails To Get You Through Friday Afternoon

We’ll admit that we’ve blown a couple hours watching twerking videos online. They’re pretty hypnotic, and just make us want to get up and dance…or at least try to. Sadly, we don’t have our bootyshaking as down pat as other women do, so you won’t catch us recording our dance sessions to post on the ‘net. Fortunately, not everyone has the same level of pride we do.

It’s safe to say that most twerking attempts result in total failure… but some are more entertaining than others. Because it’s Friday and we can all use a laugh, enjoy these 12 twerking attempts that end hilariously.

Don’t forget to check out SJP’s new shoe line (it’s officially here!), Pink bags for spring, and the 10 types of guys you always see on Tinder.


Sometimes, just getting started can be a challenge.


You know, this guy actually isn’t a terrible twerker. He’s certainly got quite a, um… unique signature move.

Sometimes a little booze is exactly what you need to loosen up so you can really pop it. But drink too much, and you could wind up like this young lady.


We think this lady just invented the pogo-stick twerk. Think it’ll catch on?


Something to think about the next time you decide to get it poppin’ on a handstand. KNOW YOUR SURROUNDINGS.


This well-meaning girl tried to protect her friend’s honor…only to wind up embarrassing her anyway.


We’re definitely trolling everyone the club with this move next time we go out!


This adorable puppy totally cramps this girl’s style. But it’s ok–he’s cute enough to get away with anything!


Nice try, honey, but that’s not how you do it.


Big girl, tiny chair… this twerk is a recipe for disaster from the very beginning.


Miley Cyrus is the queen of the twerk fail! Relive the moment she earned her crown at the 2013 MTV VMA’s.

Jimmy Fallon and Will Smith teamed up to show the evolution of Hip-Hop dance on the Tonight Show. The schtick ends with Fallon attempting to twerk and… well, let’s just say we had the same reaction Will did to his efforts. Ha!
