Cat Daddy Transcript
Hey, what's up? I'm Jeff Collins. And now, I'm going to teach you guys how to do the cat daddy. You might have seen it before in a Rej3ctz video also featuring Chris Brown. He's doing it, so now you want to do it. We're going to show you how to do it. This is what you do. Take your right arm, put it across your body. Got it? I throw my right arm, and you see I lean my body? I just do it to add my own little...you know, my little flavour, whatever. You guys can add your own.
So I'm going to go right arm here, and then left arm. After that I'm going to make two circles. So I go circle, circle -- circles are on the side of my body. Kind of makes you think of a wheelchair or something. So that's what you're going to do. You're going to go circle, circle. Got it? Let's do it. I go right, left, circle, circle. Pretty simple. You have to add a dip in there. So we're going to do one small one and then a big one.
So it looks like this. Right, left, circle, circle. Got it? I'm going to do it again. You're going to go right, left, circle, circle. Let's try it to the other side. Again, I go right, left, circle, circle. Yeah? Right, left, circle, circle. Right, left, circle, circle. Right, left, circle, circle. Got it? Let's try it. We're going to slow it down a little bit, one more time. And then we can try it to the music.
So you're going to go right arm, left arm, do your circle, do your circle. Go right arm, left arm, do your circle, do your circle. We good? You good? Let's try it. A little bit faster. Six, seven, eight. You're going right, left, circle, circle. Right, left. You got it? Come on. Right, left. Yes? All right, now.
You don't always have to go, right, left. You can sometimes do it at the same time when you switch it up. But that's on you. So you can just go, boom, and hit it. Yeah? Boom, and hit it. Boom, and hit it. Switch it up; do it however you like it. But we're going to do it first that way with the music. You guys ready to try it out?
We are. Let's do it.
Now, see how he's doing it? You can switch it up and do it however you like. You can do the...and just switch it up. Got it? Now, go out to a party and try it. That's the cat daddy. Yeah?
