If you're lucky, it will catch up with you.
If you're really lucky—like Justin Timberlake is—it will catch up with you and turn you into a viral video sensation.
It all started when the former boy band heartthrob appeared at the Something in the Water music festival, which is put on by Pharrell every year.
He came out as part of the former Neptunes' mastermind's solo set...and that's when things went horribly, and hilariously, wrong.
\u201cDC! BEAT YOUR FEET! Did Justin Timberlake get off at @sitw ? \ud83d\ude02\ud83d\udd25 @jtimberlake\u201d— DMV \ud83d\udd0c (@DMV \ud83d\udd0c) 1655652850
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
And, as you might expect, it took no time at all for Twitter to leap into action with a world-class roasting for the former N*SYNC frontman.
\u201cWhy does he move like the hackey sack scene in She\u2019s All That?\u201d— I Am Hello Kitty (@I Am Hello Kitty) 1655691632
Not the hackey sack scene!

The comments were brutal.
It didn't take long before Timberlake, himself, got wind of the social roasting.
JT took to Instagram Stories to make an apology of his own.

In his response to the justified roasting, Timberlake first claimed the reason his dance moves weren't on point was because of his sneakers...which have clearly seen better days.
"I had a long talk with both of them, individually, and I said 'don't you ever do that to me again!'"
He then went on to blame his khaki pants before promising to "make it up" to his fans at the next live performance.
And that's all good and fine.
If anyone understands the effects that age has on the human body, it's anyone—literally, anyone—born before 1980.
So, the whole of Gen X, in other words.
We've been there, Justin, and we feel your pain.
And the younger generation has been making fun of the older generation since humans evolved on this planet.
But we couldn't resist including this edit of the video, complete with squeaking noises.
Take it away, Justin!
