Things you can do to celebrate the 15th anniversary of “Legally Blonde”: ask out your local UPS guy, get a perm, burn every existing copy of “Legally Blonde 2: Red White & Blonde,” exercise for endorphins and, of course, bend and snap.
Reese Witherspoon replicated the pick-up move that has zero chance of being successful in real life on social media to commemorate the anniversary on Wednesday, while wearing, like, duh, a bright pink dress.
“That is still the most asked request I get from people,” Witherspoon told Instagram. “I have a feeling I will be doing the bend and snap until I am 95.”
In the dual videos shared on both the main Instagram account and Witherspoon’s personal page, the 40-year-old actress gives a mini-tutorial of the bend and snap for all those who have yet to perfect the move.
In one of the captions, she recounted how the film has changed not only her career, but the lives of its many dedicated fans, who’ve been inspired by Elle Woods’ journey.
“I have had so many women say, ‘I went to law school because of ‘Legally Blonde,’” she explained. “It actually had a meaningful story. And it was about female empowerment. It wasn’t necessarily about the girl getting the guy.”
