The origins of the song come from a Louis Theroux interview with the web talk show Chicken Shop Date and host Amelia Dimoldenberg earlier this year. The interview gained traction when the British-American journalist and documentary filmmaker recited a rap he once came up with years ago, entitled ‘Jiggle Jiggle’.
Soon afterwards, Manchester-based duo Duke and Jones took Theroux’s rap and put a beat to it which went on to go viral on TikTok. A pair of creators on the app, Jess Qualter and Brooke Blewitt, even created a dance to accompany the song which also gained popularity. Duke and Jones and Theroux even went on to release an official version of the song on streaming services, later on.
Last week (August 23), during the Destiny 2 showcase, a crossover between the shooter and Fortnite was announced. A number of Destiny 2 skins, including characters Commander Zavala, Ikora Rey, and the Exo Stranger are all now available in the battle royale game, as well as a multiplayer map based around the game.
