John Travolta may be known for serving the world decades of iconic dance moves, but he’s getting lovingly roasted on Twitter at the moment after an unfortunate case of dad dancing.

The actor is at the Cannes Film Festival promoting his new movie Gotti , and was honored with the Variety Cinema Icon Award Tuesday evening. There was a party to celebrate the occasion, complete with a live show from 50 Cent. That’s when “Just a Lil Bit” started playing, Travolta took the stage, and people’s phone cameras started rolling.

In Travolta’s defense, it’s not the easiest song to groove to solo outside of a school dance in 2005. Nonetheless, Twitter has been enjoying the opportunity to see the typically graceful actor seem relatably out-of-his-element.

We think you did great, sweetie.
