If you’ve ever been on the wrong end of a breakup then you know that legendary R&B singer Gloria Gaynor is nothing short of a national treasure.

At first I was afraid/ I was petrified/ Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side…

Imagine the Internet’s delight then when the 70-year-old singer made a surprise drop-in to the viral video platform TikTok to demonstrate excellent hand-washing practice (don’t just scrub for a second or two!) using her epic song as a backdrop. She really gets into it, too! Of course she does.

More of this please, world.
