If you want to participate in the latest dance meme, TikTok is the way to go. Gen Z influencers have made a name for themselves by just dancing. That’s it. They just dance and get millions of views.
Case in point, Charli D’Amelio, a 16-year-old dancer with 94.7 million followers and more than seven billion likes on her TikTok videos. This video received 67.8 million views and 12 million likes:
While this one received 109.5 million views and 16.5 million likes.
See, TikTok loves dancing and it loves challenges and when those two are combined, it’s meme magic.
Recently, TikTok user @that_girl_slayed — whose account has since been deleted — came up with the Darling, Darling Twerk for Me challenge, utilizing City Girls’ track “Twerk” as the audio.
Obviously, the point of the dance is to showcase your best twerking, however, there’s some choreography involved. The video that kicked off the trend has three girls in it, showing off their choreographed dance to all of TikTok. People loved the original video, which received 36.5 million views and 3.3 million likes in 16 days.
Other TikTok users began using the sound to create their own videos, including D’Amelio, whose video received 171 million views in 14 days and is at the end of this YouTube compilation:
Many of the videos feature TikTokers showing off their skills to unsuspecting friends and loved ones.
Prior to the account being deactivated, @that_girl_slayed’s sound was used in more than five million TikTok videos. Addison Rae, another TikTok influencer, also got in on the fun. Rae is a member of TikTok influencer collective Hype House and posts content that typically shows her dancing and lip-syncing.
Her version of the meme received 111 million views and 15.5 million likes.
You know, we’re hiding indoors from a pandemic and have a lot of time on our hands. Let’s dance.
