Have you ever dabbed in the photo booth?
“You mean smoke the extracted oil from marijuana in the photo booth?… Yeah, this one time…”
No, no, no, that was a joke.
I seriously hope none of you have and don’t encourage it at all! It could get you in some big trouble. Let’s keep it PG-13 ladies and gentlemen.
What I mean by dabbing in the photo booth is this new popular dance that has been going around and to be quite honest, it’s quite stupid, but stupid things make for some great memories that’s for sure.
It is a funny trend just like silly dances that were popular such as The Gangnam Style, and The Nae Nae.
Every few years there seems to be a new type of silly dance that has captured the world and, well, we can use it to make our photo booth business a lot more fun.
These dances are silly, awkward, stupid, funny, or, however, you want to say it.
“The Dab” Dance Goes A Little Like This
Wiki defines the dab dance as,
“The Dab (also known as dabbin’) is a hip hop dance in which the dancer simultaneously drops the head while raising an arm, briefly resting the face inside the elbow in a gesture that has been noted to resemble “proper sneezing etiquette” then they blow air really hard to make that noise. As a Sports Illustrated article about the phenomenon described the Dab, “The dance is pretty simple; one leans in to their elbow like they’re sneezing.”
Yes, we even brought Wikipedia into this.
It’s probably the easiest dance so far, and anyone can do it. This is probably why it’s so popular as people around the world come together to do the dab.
It has even been used by celebrities and even on popular live shows. Whoever pioneer this idea of dabbing is now a legend.
It’s quite funny to think, and this is just my guess, is that this dance move could have originated from a mom and pop’s kitchen then it just happen as someone suddenly sneezed and…. Ding, the genius light bulb comes on and gave birth to a new fad.

Whether you introduce it or not, there will always be someone from the events that knows how to do the dab. You’d be surprised by who knows it. It could be the grandfather who’s doing the dab or little kids dabbing it out with their friends.
From my experience, dabbing can be for any event such as weddings, birthday parties, or graduation parties.
There are hilarious sayings about The Dab, “If you got into Harvard, do The Dab!”, “If you just got a raise, do The Dab!”, and “If you just got married, do The Dab!”
The dance does have a meaning and that meaning is when you see success, just let loose and shake it off with The Dab.
The Dab will bring life to a dud party. If you can make the party just a little more fun, use this as a tool at your next event. Your clients will love you for it.
A lot of people will giggle at just saying it and that’s when you know you have captured their curiosity and their fun side. You’ll bring not only your photo booth services, but also the party. Who doesn’t want a fun person at their event?

All the fun and funny moments can mean a lot to people, so keep bringing the joy fellow photo booth brothers and sisters.
