Is Virality Bad For Wednesday? Jenna Ortega’s Reaction To Famous Dance Scene Sparks Debate

Read About Jenna Ortega’s Reaction To The Famous Dance Scene From The Netflix Series “Wednesday” And How It Reveals The Limitations Of Virality

Jenna Ortega‘s reaction to Wednesday’s dance scene in the Netflix series “Wednesday” sheds light on the limitations of virality. The dance scene has become one of the most memorable and famous parts of the Tim Burton series, with Wednesday Addams dancing to “Goo Goo Muck” by The Cramps at a school dance with Tyler. However, Ortega’s comments reveal that the scene’s virality may not be good for the character.

Ortega expresses concern about the attention on the scene, stating that it’s disorienting and that people are not naturally designed to have that many eyes on them. She highlights the fact that the dance was not designed with the intent of going viral, but rather serves a specific purpose in the context of Wednesday’s story.

The Issue With The Scene’s Perception


The virality of the dance scene can result in losing its initial meaning, creating an issue with the scene in “Wednesday.” It’s impressive that the dance drew so much attention, but unfortunately, that comes at the cost of misconstruing the original meaning and intent behind the character’s iconic dance. Seeing the dance without watching it in the context of the show can completely change not only the scene’s interpretation but also that of Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday.

While the viral dance scene may draw more eyes to the Netflix series, it also has the potential to hurt the Addams Family character. If people only see the dance scene, they may view Wednesday Addams as merely “quirky,” missing the point of the character’s struggles in the series. One of Wednesday Addams’ struggles is being taken seriously by peers, and reducing her to a quirky trait is reductive.

The Only Way To Experience The Character Fully


While the dance scene is fun, the only way to fully experience who this version of Wednesday Addams is ultimately is through watching the full Netflix series. By doing so, viewers can understand the context and purpose of the dance scene and appreciate Jenna Ortega’s portrayal of the character in its entirety.
