Super Bowl 50: Betty White dabs, says she taught Cam Newton 'everything he knows'

Betty White can do pretty much anything — including, apparently, the dab.

The actress proved just that in a celebrity-laden segment that aired about a half hour before Super Bowl 50's kickoff. While other stars waxed poetic on past moments of glory, White was decidedly in the now, duplicating the celebratory dance often executed by Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

Minutes later, her verified Twitter account bragged about her prowess.

"I taught @CameronNewton everything he knows," the tweet said, accompanied by the hashtag #SuperBowl.

Twitter, of course, exploded. Among her many fans was choreographer-turned-pop star Paula Abdul.
