The Dab is not quite dead, but it’s almost there. A lot of boring, old people have done their best to try to kill the Dab and bury it deep underground.
But there are a brave few keeping the Dab alive. Among them, whoever is in the Squidward costume in this Vine.
Squidward feels no joy in this Dab, but he will do it. Because the people demand it. They want the Dab. They need the Dab. And so he soldiers onward, stoic and committed. To Dabbing.
Unsurprisingly, the half-second of Squidward Dabbing was still enough footage to turn the incident into a minor meme.
