From iconic memes to epic dance challenges, there’s no denying the fact that TikTok is all the rage right now. The hugely popular app is quickly establishing itself as one of the most raved-about social media platforms today, and you can definitely see why. Known for its extensive catalog of insanely creative short-form videos, all you need to do is take up one of these dance challenges to go viral in an instant. Don’t just take it from us – let’s check out some of the latest ones that are making its rounds on TikTok.
#1 The Git Up Challenge
“Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie” – the Git Up dance has become a huge hit after TikTok user Harvey Bass (@harveybass) dropped a hilarious video of himself covering the Blanco Brown routine at his school cafeteria (which err, subsequently resulted in a suspension from school. Oh well, at least he’s gained virality for it!). The Git Up challenge has since gone viral, even earning a feature on Ellen DeGeneres’s ellentube!
#2 The #SlideandSwivel Challenge
Trust Samsung to partner up with TikTok for their latest smartphone campaign. In an effort to promote the new Samsung Galaxy A80, the tech giant came up with the #SlideandSwivel challenge – which gets TikTok users to slide and swivel like the phone’s new slide-up camera function. That’s not all; you also stand a chance to win yourself a spanking new phone as well as exclusive BLACKPINK merchandise. Now that’s a marketing strategy we approve of!
#3 Crab Rave
Put your claws in the air! Irish DJ Noisestorm literally took the Internet by storm after the release of his ‘Crab Rave’ music video, starring a cast of dancing crabs that spawned the ‘crab walk dance’ – which garnered over 22 million hits on the #CrabRave tag alone.
