The Internet Is Shook After Rumors Circulate “The Electric Slide” Is About a Vibrator

It's electric!

If you’ve ever attended a wedding, cookout, or bat mitzvah, you’ve probably boogied to Marcia Griffith and Bunny Wailer’s “The Electric Slide.” But have you ever stopped to listen to the lyrics?

Rumors of the song’s meaning are circulating on social media that the “electric slide” is actually a vibrator.

“It’s electric,” sings Griffith. “You can’t see it. You gotta feel it. Ooh, it’s shakin’,” she continues.

We see where this is going—and so does the internet.

According to Aazios, the celebratory single’s songwriter, 71-year-old Neville Livingston, aka, Bunny Wailer, has confirmed the song is indeed about a sex toy.

“I’m surprised it took people this long to figure out,” Wailer told an unidentified source. Apparently, Wailer wrote the song after a girlfriend told him she no longer needed his…services…because had a new gadget she dubbed the “electric slide.”

Hopefully we didn’t just ruin your childhood. Here’s the song for you to enjoy one last time.
