This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about the only nice thing that happened on the internet this week.

In case her list of accomplishments and talents wasn’t long enough, we’re here to remind everyone that on top of being an actress, writer, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Oprah Winfrey is also an extremely smooth dancer.

On Wednesday, Oprah’s close personal friend and A Wrinkle In Time co-star Mindy Kaling shared a damn-near perfect moment she captured on video: Oprah dancing.   

But this wasn’t just any casual little jig. Oprah was at a photo shoot busting out some soulful, smooth, sassy moves for the camera. She was also looking fresh to death — wearing white pants, a poppin’ yellow tunic and scarf, and a super stylish hat.

And oh yeah, did we mention Camila Cabello’s “Havana” was playing in the background? Because apparently not even the iconic Oprah can resist that absolute jam.

Mindy, who captured the footage from the sidelines — assumingly without Oprah’s knowledge — knew the award-worthy video would be best presented without comment, so she simply tweeted it alongside three trophy emoji. A bold-but-fitting move.

And though Oprah was probably hard at work, she looked like she was having so much fun that actor Seth Rogen felt compelled to second-guess every photoshoot he’s ever done.

While Rogen was wondering if he should start taking the Oprah approach to photo shoots, Mindy’s former Mindy Project co-star and BFF Ike Barinholtz stepped in to remind Rogen that not everyone can successfully pull off Oprah’s level of swag. Very true, Ike. Good point.

The video left quite an impression online and a number of people felt inspired to turn Oprah’s dance moves into a meme.

Several fans also noticed a Gayle King cameo in the video, but most people were too busy wondering where on Earth they send their applications for the job of Oprah’s Personal Fan Operator to notice.

We already knew Oprah makes kick-ass margaritas, so her flawless dance moves simply confirm that she’s the life of any party.

Thanks for the behind-the-scenes footage, Mindy. Keep it coming. 6666 7516%2fthumb%2f00001
