If you have not seen the Netflix show Wednesday yet, we must ask you what you are waiting for. It’s one of the hottest shows out right now and has inspired a sizable amount of discussion over the past few weeks.
It is easy to see why, as there’s no shortage of amazing moments to enjoy and dissect. The video that you are about to check out is a prime example of that.
As the days pass, the show continues to shatter streaming records and it is gaining new fans on a constant basis. According to Variety, the show has been streamed for over 5 billion minutes already, which makes it even more popular than we realized. Now, the smash hit is inspiring all sorts of people to showcase their fandom and we are loving it.
Kamila Valieva, an Olympic ice skater who took home a gold medal at the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games, is here to put her own spin on one of the show’s most iconic moments.
If you have seen the fourth episode, you already know exactly what we are talking about. The titular character has a dance that has to be seen to believed, for those who have not.
That’s what makes this moment such a special one. Of course, you cannot do a Wednesday dance unless you are willing to break out your very own goth outfit and Kamila does not let us down at all in that regard. The eerie red light is a nice touch. We also appreciated the fact that Thing was able to make an appearance.
For those who have not seen the show, Thing is a hand that has been dismembered but somehow remains sentient. Once Kamila has the chance to take center stage, it gets even better. She is able to perfectly mimic Wednesday’ aloof facial expressions, which makes this one a true winner. For the first part, she dances to The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck.”
For the second half, she takes a more modern approach and skates to the strains of Lady Gaga’s “Bloody Mary.” The routine took place at the 2023 Russian Figure Staking Championships. While she did not take home the top honor, she was able to take home a silver in the women’s senior championship division.SKM: below-content placeholder
