One of the most memorable raps of the year came, oddly enough, from a 52-year-old British American documentarian. If you’ve spent any time on TikTok, you probably know it well: “My money don’t jiggle jiggle, it folds / I’d like to see you wiggle wiggle, for sure,” Louis Theroux raps in the opening bars.
Despite being one of TikTok’s biggest hits in 2022, the rap actually first appeared in the year 2000, on an episode of Theroux’s BBC Two docuseries Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends, a show exploring different subcultures. In the episode, titled “Gangsta Rap,” Theroux met rappers in the American South, including Mississippi-based rap duo Reese & Bigalow, who helped the host craft his own track, according to the New York Times. In 2016, the series had a resurgence in popularity when it came to Netflix in the UK.
Flash-forward to February 2022, Theroux appeared on the YouTube interview show Chicken Shop Date and, at the request of host Amelia Dimoldenberg, gave a quick, deadpan rendition of his old rap. British DJ duo Duke & Jones remixed the clip, which then went viral on TikTok — particularly after TikTokers Jess Qualter and Brooke Blewitt turned it into a dance. Their choreography became a massive TikTok trend, with tons of people, including celebrities like Megan Thee Stallion and the Riverdale cast making their own versions.
