Antonio Banderas’ Weird Emmys Clap Is The New Nicole Kidman Seal Clap – Perez Hilton
Move over, Nicole Kidman’s Oscars seal clap — there’s a new peculiar applause technique that’s gotten the world’s attention.
Antonio Banderas was minding his own business at the 2018 Emmys Monday night when viewers noticed his clap was… not of a standard method?
OK, it was weird.
Instead of striking his hands together opened palmed — like we’re all accustomed to — the Genius star performed a mild-mannered golf clap with his digits in a quasi-heavy metal hand sign formation.
The result was perplexing to many:

Calling it early for gif of the year. Gotta be Antonio Banderas’ weird Emmy clapping. An appropriate reply to anything.

Some responders argued the actor was clapping in *Spanish*, specifically a style used in Flamenco dance.
But most Twitter users just compared it to that other celebrity clapping conundrum:

Which celebrity will clap weird next?
