Watch Paula Deen Attempt to Do the Nae Nae

All the cool kids are doing it.

Butter queen Paula Deen is slated to terrorize the dance floor on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars, and the show has released a little preview of her, err, talent. Dressed in a sparkly purple gown, Deen can be seen busting a move to the song all the kids/the entire internet is dancing to these days: Silento's hit single "Watch Me."

The song asks listeners to do specific dance moves including "The Whip," — which Deen oh so cleverly replaces with a "whisk" — and the "Nae Nae." Deen doesn't quite manage to do either, but she does flail around a bit and smile at the camera a lot, so close enough?
