When it’s your turn tick tock, there’s a good chance the voice of Louis Theroux has been stuck in your head lately. His catchy “Jiggle Jiggle” rap — yes, you know the one I’m talking about — has accompanied viral videos across the platform. Where I used to only occasionally think of words like “wiggle” and “dribble”, now only my mind lets me hear them.

In case your ears somehow missed the smooth, flawless melody of jiggle-jiggle rap, here’s what you need to know. Theroux, a British-American documentary filmmaker, wrote the rap in an episode of his BBC 2 documentary series, Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends. The episode aired in 2000. On February 18, Theroux was asked if he remembered the rap during an appearance on television YouTube seriesChicken Shop Date, and he went back into star rapper mode.

This is the version of the jiggle jiggle song you heard on TikTok. It’s no longer a cappella either, thanks to Manchester-based producers Duke and Jones. They posted their music-accompanied video on March 16th and it has since racked up more than 20 million views.

Comments below the video go something like this: “I can’t physically stop listening to this”, “Wow this is hard” and just plain “Phenomenal”.

@dukeandjones My money doesn’t wobble, it works 💯💰 #louistheroux#ameliadmoldenberg#chickenshopdate#auto tune#remix#fyp♬ My money don’t wiggle, wiggle – Duke & Jones

More videos using the sound have also arrived. Turns out you can apply the jiggle jiggle rap to just about anything. Here’s a dog… Dogging?

Boom. A million likes. This stretch is gold.

As for the inspiration for the lyrics? “Wiggle,” “wiggle,” and “dribble” apparently came to Theroux in the shower, according to Weird Weekends.

On the show, one of the rappers who helped Theroux write the track elaborated on the rap’s iconic opening line: “My money don’t wiggle, wiggle, it works.”

“You don’t have quarters and dimes and nickels, you have dollars, hundreds and whatever you have,” he said. “And whatever you have, it works.”

If you need more Theroux Raps in your life, you’ve come to the right place. The BBC released footage containing a second verse of jiggle jiggle rap. Here’s the clip this is from Louis Theroux: Life on the Edge, a recent series by Theroux revisiting his earlier work.

More dribble, dribble.
