Ghost-riding the whip has been a huge trend on the Internet these days so we decided to commemorate our favourite videos. If you don’t know, ghost-riding is when a person gets out of their moving vehicle (the whip) and dances beside and around it. While it’s been around for years it became really popular with the 2006 song “Tell Me When to Go” by E-40 and “Ghost Ride It” by Mistah F.A.B. The song references actor Patrick Swayze in Ghost, sparking Internet references to ghost riding as “Going Swayze.”
The trend had its heyday roughly five years ago, but we thought we’d open the vault and have a look at some of our faves.

I’ve always been pretty convinced that my grandparents are the most swagged-out people on the planet. My whole life has been a lie.
Today, we found this video by bsmiles86 called “Ghost Ridin’ Grandma.” It really is as amazing as it sounds. After a short debate of what to do with their elderly lives, the grandma and grandpa in the video make the ultimate decision to ghost ride the whip. The duo take a casual stroll next to their yellow Scion, while “Ghost Ride It” by Mistah Fab blares in the background. No biggie.
What we want to know is, where are they going? Are they aimlessly wandering through their epic lives (what’s left of them) or are they riding with a purpose? Naw, we think they just lead lives of total badassery and don’t need an excuse to ghost ride their whips.
