Actor Morgan Freeman on Wednesday used his famous voice to provide a dramatic reading of the definition of “twerking.”

Following the news that the latest Oxford dictionary update would include a definition for the raunchy dance craze, HLN host Robin Meade put Freeman’s “beautiful voice” to work.

“The word ‘twerking’ has now been added to the Oxford dictionary,” Freeman explained. “Here’s the definition they gave: To dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner, involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.”

“This is the first time that I’ve ever heard of it,” the actor pointed out after reading the definition.

“What? That’s not true, you said it on the golf course yesterday,” Meade insisted. “I’m pretty sure.”

“Was I sober?” Freeman wondered.
