After his death, fans took to Twitter to share their favorite moment of Pee-wee Herman, the perpetual man-child character created and portrayed by Reubens. One of the moments was the character’s famous Tequila dance from the 1985 Tim Burton movie, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.

Here is the video:

In the scene preceding the dance, Herman starts off by angering a bar full of surly bikers by telling them to shut up so that he can make a phone call. He then proceeded to knock over their motorcycles. As the angry bikers are about to kill him, Herman asks for a last request – to play one last song on the jukebox as he gets his dance on.

As fate would have it, the jukebox plays Tequila, which is the Champs’ 1958 Number One instrumental hit. Herman began by duckwalking and later pointing at his crotch and his butt. The bikers did not seem impressed by his dance so he hops over to the bar counter and starts smashing drinks. This gets the bikers into groove and they start enjoying his “pee-pee, poopie dance.” When it ends, everybody shouts “Tequila!” All his actions are forgiven and Herman is declared their hero.
