The Rules are pretty simple. In order to win (basically), you need to submit a 60-second video of your best dancing and fitness workouts and post it to some sort of social media using the hashtags #DanceOn and #MadonnaChallenge.

Indeed, the Cubs manager nominated his strength and conditioning coach Tim Buss – who is a ridiculous goofball, himself – to be Madonna’s new trainer.

Key and Peele also did an amazing spoof on the now-famous video:
