Bruce Willis busts some moves alongside daughter Mabel but in the end gets a lesson in dancing
Bruce Willis is dancing into the weekend, with a little help from his 10-year-old daughter Mabel.
On Friday, Emma Heming Willis took to her Instagram page and shared a video of the Die Hard star shaking his bootie next to their oldest daughter.
But after seeing her father’s first moves, Mabel quickly takes over and starts teaching the old leading man a few dance lessons.
Bustin’ moves: Bruce Willis, 67, danced his way into the ‘weekend strong’ with 10-year-old daughter Mabel in a new video posted to his wife’s Instagram page Friday
‘Bringing that weekend strong! #TGIF #happyfriday,” Emma wrote in the caption.
In the clip, Mabel kicks things off by shuffling her hips back and forth while imitating she’s holding something with her hands in front of her around her waist high.
As Bruce watched to learn the moves, an excerpt from the Lizzo song About Damn Time begins to play. The chorus line “it’s about damn time” is repeated a few times, along with a kind of nursery rhyme.
Within seconds it’s Bruce’s turn trying to mimic his daughter’s movements, conjuring a wide beaming smile, but he doesn’t quite have the same flair.
Not happy with her father’s interpretation, Mabel begins to give the old movie action hero a dance lesson, repeating the same moves.

The Sixth Sense actor would take a second turn during the dance and begin to shake his hips back and forth.
While he seemed to get the actual moves down, Bruce didn’t show the same smooth moves as his baby girl.
Just then, Mabel bursts out laughing, causing her father to laugh at himself.
