The Dab is everywhere in Charlotte these days thanks to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

Only days after Panthers owner Jerry Richardson joined the craze, Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts and city council celebrated the start of their new terms by dabbing on ‘em folks.

Former Charlotte resident Jeremy Markovich, a senior editor/writer at Our State magazine, wrote an in-depth look at how the picture could prove to be the end of the fad.

To these elected officials’ credit, The Dab has been on life support for weeks.
