- A video of Hillary Clinton attempting to dance the Macarena with the band Los Del Rio in Spain has gone viral
- It's not the first time she's been filmed trying out the moves, having clapped along while others danced in 1996
A video of Hillary Clinton awkwardly attempting to dance the Macarena with the band Los Del Rio in Spain has gone viral.
Clinton was filmed grinning and wiggling her hands as the two musicians on either side of her danced the correct moves.
She was in Seville for a ceremony in her honor at the Palacio de Duenas after meeting Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares in Madrid.
This isn't the first time Clinton has been filmed attempting the Macarena.
In 1996, the then-first lady was filmed at the Democratic National Convention awkwardly clapping along while people danced around her.
At first, Clinton seemed to try the moves, but she quickly gave up
Instead, she wiggled her shoulders and shifted from foot to foot
She smiled in amusement as the band pulled her onto the dance floor
In the latest clip, Clinton is seen being led onto the dance floor by the band before taking the stage.
At first she seems to try out the movements, holding out one hand, then the other, but she quickly gives up.
Then she stands there while the band sings, smiling, clapping and shifting from foot to foot.
The video was shared on Instagram by Spanish aristocrat Eugenia Martínez de Irujo, who hosted the party in her honor.
Other guests of honor were David Bisbal and the President of the Junta de Andalucía Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla.
Some viewers pointed out that Clinton should have been aware of the moves since they occurred repeatedly during her husband Bill's campaign.
But in a recently resurfaced video from the DNC in 1996, it appears Clinton didn't know the moves then either, as she clapped her hands while other attendees performed the routine.
Clinton is named multiple times in Jeffrey Epstein's court filings – and while he is not accused of any wrongdoing, the documents cast an unwelcome spotlight on his friendship with the late pedophile financier

The viral video comes as Bill Clinton grapples with the fallout from Jeffrey Epstein's recently unsealed documents that accused him of “liking her young.”
The former president, 77, was previously on vacation in Latin America with his wife Hillary Clinton while the unsealing of the Epstein documents began on January 3.
Clinton is named several times in the court documents – and although he is not accused of wrongdoing, the documents cast an unwelcome spotlight on his friendship with the late pedophile financier.
One of Epstein's victims, Johanna Sjoberg, claimed that Epstein told her that Clinton “liked young girls.”
Clinton flew on Epstein's private jet several times and once publicly praised the financier's intellect and philanthropic efforts.
Sjoberg said in her testimony that she never met Clinton, and none of Epstein's victims accused Clinton of sexual impropriety.
Clinton had previously said through a spokesman that while he traveled on Epstein's jet, he never visited his homes, had no knowledge of his crimes and had not spoken to Epstein since his conviction in Florida.
