After Being ‘Schooled’ by Young & Restless Son Joshua Morrow, Eric Braeden Breaks the Internet Anew — *and* Issues a Playful Warning: ’50 Cent, Watch Out!’
Is anyone having more fun with social media than the soap icon who plays Victor Newman?
After Eric Braeden started the new year by accepting the TikTok “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” dance challenge and busting a move to the tune of Rod Stewart’s golden oldie, we were sure — like, 100-percent sure that he couldn’t possibly top that video (which you can watch below, on the off chance that you missed it).
Happy New Year, don’t try this at home! 🤣
But as if to remind us that it’s as foolish to underestimate the daytime legend as it is his formidable Young & Restless character, Victor Newman, the actor posted a new clip on February 15 that proved us utterly wrong. In it, between scenes on the set, Joshua Morrow — Nick, as if you didn’t know — gives his on-screen father a quick lesson in beatboxing. Immediately, Braeden gives it a shot — to hilarious effect.
“Never stop learning!” he tweeted, adding playfully, “50 Cent, watch out!”
While it might be a minute before Braeden is ready to challenge anyone to a rap battle, his followers went nuts for the clip. And understandably so. His game attitude and go-for-it attempt could charm the mustache off his alter ego!
On Instagram, Braeden joked, “I’m trying hard.” In response, former Young & Restless son Justin Hartley (ex-Adam) cheered, “This is amazing. Nailed it!” Fan butterflyangie summed up our feelings along with her own, writing that it was the “best thing I’ve seen on the internet today!”

You can watch Morrow and Braeden in action above. Then check out our rankings of the many wives of Victor Newman in the below photo gallery of his hits and Mrs.
<p>Of <em>course</em>, this fake “union” had to come in dead last. Where else <em>could</em> it have ranked when Victor only pretended to fall for the gold-digging conwoman’s BS in order to bust her for her many misdeeds in spectacularly elaborate fashion.</p>
<p>We went along with it when Sharon moved on from Nick to not one but both of his half brothers. But we had to draw the line at her marriage to his dad. Since she’d always regarded Victor as a father figure, it was less a case of “I do” than “I… <em>ew</em>!”</p>
<p>We could understand why Victor would be drawn to daughter Victoria’s old friend: Ill-fated Sabrina was beautiful and refined. But there was just so little <em>there</em> there that the art buff was a bit like an ornate frame without a painting in it.</p>
<p>Yeah, yeah, the Mustache only married the author of <em>Ruthless</em> so hastily to keep the press from thinking that he’d dumped Nikki for Ashley. But the erstwhile Nora Randall was a real change of pace for the mogul — and a hoot to boot!</p>
<p>Their marriages were never exactly what you’d call “good” — Victor wed Kyle Abbott’s late mother twice — but they <em>were</em> interesting, less unions born of love than partnerships forged by circumstance and boundless self-interest.</p>
<p>When the budding power monger arrived in Genoa City way back when, on his arm was the beautiful Julia, a future model whose every portrait betrayed the rancor in their household. Was it a healthy relationship? Heavens, no! But it was sure gripping to watch!</p>
<p>If any of the tycoon’s wives besides the one at No. 1 ever stood a chance of going the distance with him, it was the sister of his archenemy, Jack Abbott. Not only did Victor truly adore Ashley, he loved how much their marriage(s) infuriated Jack!</p>
<p>Even if you were as blind as Adam’s beloved mother was, you could’ve seen that the simple Kansas farmer brought out the absolute best in Victor. Trouble was, she couldn’t <em>keep</em> it out. (Megalo- is, after all, a notoriously hard mania to cork!)</p>
