The Running Man Challenge has been making the rounds on the internet over the past few weeks, so it was only a matter of time before it reached Ellen.

Ellen invited the two kids who are responsible for jump-starting the movement, as well as Maryland basketball players Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley, who helped it take off, onto the show. They did the running man.

While this continues the simultaneous rise, and fall, of the Running Man Challenge, that doesn’t mean there can’t still be great submissions. Dabo Swinney hit what was likely a top-five running man on Tuesday before the 2016 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge.

We all needed that, Dabo. Thanks.
