Have you ever wondered whether LaKeith Stanfield has participated in a TikTok dance challenge? Or if Jacob Elordi has forgotten his lines during filming? How about whether Tom Holland has taken a nude selfie? Sure you have. In this edition of Never Have I Ever, W’s Best Performances stars, including Tessa Thompson, Taylour Paige, and Rachel Brosnahan play a rousing round of the revealing game—with no holds barred on their honest answers.
In 2020, the superstar K-pop band BTS broke seven Guinness World Records with their song “Dynamite”: it became the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours, got 7,778,950 streams within a day (and subsequently nabbed the title for the biggest Spotify release of 2020), and spent the most weeks at no. 1 for Billboard’s Social 50 chart. We at W were inspired by the impact BTS—and its fandom, known as the Army—made, not just in the realm of music, but for the culture at large, and chose their song “Dynamite” for our annual round of Lyrical Improv. Watch Jacob Elordi, George Clooney, Tom Holland, Jared Leto, Andra Day, and more of our 2021 Best Performances stars give their renditions of the chart-busting track here.
Part 2 – Jules will premiere January 24th at 9pm EST on HBO and will be available to stream the same day!
Jacob Elordi schools us in Australian slang. From “goon sack” to “the bush,” Jacob will leave you saying “Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi” after this episode of Slang School.
