Years from now, perhaps a 30 for 30 will take us back to the beautiful, ephemeral time in American history when the dab was cool.

Below are five people we can partially blame for helping kill the dab. Murderers.

1. Ed Werder

2. Cris Carter

3. Hillary Clinton

4. National Spelling Bee Contestants

5. Roger Goodell

RIP, dab. You were too beautiful for this world.
