WATCH: This 'Beto For Texas' Flash Mob Is The Most Embarrassing Thing You'll See All Day

Beto O'Rourke may be running at least 7 points behind in his bid to unseat Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, but his legions of adoring fans are no less enthusiastic.

In fact, they've been practicing for days — days — to bring you this inspiring and upbeat music video, wherein they prove once and for all that white people cannot dance.

Behold: B-E-T-O.

If your speakers are turned down, or you've determined that this video is not safe for work — or, frankly, any other location in the civilized world — imagine they're dancing to an updated version of the Village People's classic, "Y-M-C-A," but with "B-E-T-O" in place of the eponymous health club. Also, do not be alarmed. It does not appear anyone in the video is having an actual seizure.

WATCH:

In case you were wondering, it is real.

The video should give Ted Cruz a little relief, and not because these people actually had to practice to get this dance down pat, but because it appears only 30 people showed up to a planned Beto for Texas rally that was clearly so important, it required dancing.

"B-E-T-O" is, shockingly, not the only Beto O'Rourke-inspired production number filmed for dissemination on the web, though it is arguably the most enthusiastic. A group that bills itself as "Austin's SNL" has a music video for its own original song, "Beto-mania" (though they pronounce it "Beh-to," apparently for effect).

Beto's real name, by the way, is "Robert Francis O'Rourke."

No matter how you say it, Beto is in trouble: he's now running at least 7 points behind Cruz in the latest poll, and despite raising more than $38 million for his campaign coffers, he's blowing through his cash reserves at an alarming pace. By the time his fundraising numbers were revealed, Beto had spent more than $22 million — a burn rate of nearly 75%.
