Courtney Cox recreates iconic Bruce Springsteen “Dancing in the Dark” video

Even celebrities like to get in on social media trends.

The Friends alum threw it back to her appearance in Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 music video for ‘Dancing in the Dark’ as she jumped on a TikTok trend that asks parents how they danced during the decade.

“1980’s dancing…in the dark,” Cox captioned the video.


Cox was 20 years old when she was selected by director Brian De Palma from a casting call for the video, which was filmed at the opening night of Springsteen’s Born in the USA Tour in Saint Paul, Minnesota and featured The Boss pulling her out of the crowd to dance on stage with him.

Although Cox previously said the video “got me in the door to so many places,” she admitted on Off Camera in 2017 that she “didn’t want to be the one” picked to go onstage.
