During a recent taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, gruff and groovy presidential hopeful was backstage when he began to break into dance. The video evidence has no audio attached to it, which is great because now you can imagine whichever song you like as the soundtrack to Sanders’s boogie, the beats that rev his engines. (In reality, it’s probably some Top-40 garbage, but that’s OK: I imagine keeping it loose is important in a run to the White House, so you do you, Bernie.)

This isn’t the only Bernie Sanders dancing video available on the good ‘ol Internet, either. Here’s one of the Vermont senator breaking it down to his own music, a 1987 folk album that you can listen to in its entirety here.
