On Tuesday night, C-SPAN2 viewers who tuned in past the end of Doug Jones’ victory speech were treated to an extra dose of the ecstatic mood in the room as his team celebrated his close win over Republican and alleged sexual assaulter Roy Moore.

C-SPAN2 appears to have been broadcasting the mixer feed from the victory party, and when he wrapped up his remarks —with a “God bless the state of Alabama and the United States of America”—Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How To Dougie” instantly kicked in, as viewers pointed out.
