Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig break down that bonkers White Noise dance sequence

Warning: This article contains spoilers for White Noise. Writer-director Noah Baumbach's adaptation of White Noise doesn't feature many major deviations from Don DeLillo's 1985 novel about the Gladney family and their encounter with an "airborne toxic event."

The scene takes place in a supermarket and finds the cast, including leads Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig, grooving through the aisles to the sound of a specially-recorded LCD Soundsystem track entitled "new body rhumba."
