Courteney Cox re-created her “Dancing in the Dark” dance for a TikTok trend.

In recent weeks, TikTokers have taken to asking their moms how they danced in the 1980s and posting videos, many of which are backed by the 1984 song “Smalltown Boy,” by Bronski Beat.

Cox, of course, famously got her start by appearing in the 1984 video for Bruce Springsteen‘s “Dancing in the Dark.” (She had only appeared in an episode of As the World Turns prior to being cast in his video.)

On TikTok, she poked fun her dancing in the 1984 video while also taking part in one of the latest trends. Cox took to the social media platform to share a video — captioned “1980’s dancing… in the dark” — with her dancing to “Smalltown Boy.” Over the video are the words, “Asking my mom how she danced in the 80’s.”

After a few seconds, she shakes her head, as if saying “no,” and removes her sweatshirt to reveal the same Bruce Springsteen T-shirt she wore in the video for “Dancing in the Dark.”

Doing similar moves to the ones she busts out in that video, her TikTok video then cuts to the Springsteen one. The latter would prove to be a breakout part for the actress, who went on to become a big star with roles in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the Scream franchise and, of course, Friends.

Watch her TikTok video below.
