Sure, the Denver Broncos took home the Super Bowl title last night, beating the Panthers 24-10. The Broncos win and the speculated retirement of their “leader” and quarterback Peyton Manning is making the headlines this morning, but the victors are not the only ones trending on social media right now. Stealing the limelight is America’s longtime sweetheart, Betty White. The much-loved  actress pulled off “the dab” — a move made famous by Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton — in the Super Bowl opener.
The ad, directed by Ron Howard, featured other celebrities such as David Letterman, John Travolta, and our very own Larry King. But despite the impressive turn-out, it was White and her dance moves that stole the show.

The hip 94-year-old didn’t leave it at that though. Shortly after the ad, she tweeted: “I taught @CameronNewton everything he knows.”
The hugely talented and multifaceted actress, has eight Emmy awards, three American Comedy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild awards, and a Grammy to her name. She is also the only woman to have an Emmy in all performing comedic categories.
During her extraordinary career, that has spanned more than 75 years, White has starred in some of the most iconic and loved American sitcoms, including "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Golden Girls". She remains popular after all this time, with her ceaseless and contagiously upbeat persona popping up
