Youtube how to floss dance

The floss enters the top five dance crazes of all time!

Dance crazes and fads have long been an iconic part of popular culture – when MTV aired in 1981 with “Video Killed the Radio Star”, an era of music videos was born and gave fans around-the-clock music on television that they could easily access, and copy.

Music artists like Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue and Madonna became famous for their catchy dance routines and signature steps such as Thriller, the Loco Motion and Vogue – becoming iconic features of any dance floor at school discos and weddings.

When social media exploded in the early noughties, video sharing platforms such as YouTube and Facebook gave way to a world of viral content – allowing dance crazes to easily circulate across the internet and turning music fans into the creators where they could share their own adaptions and attempts. Crazes such as the Harlem Shake and Cha Cha Slide meant the dance routines became more famous that the songs or artists themselves.

Using socially aggregated data across platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, we’ve explored some of the top dance crazes across the decade to see which ones have been the most popular, and how many of us have attempted our own terrible versions on social media.


No 1. Gangnam Style by Psy (458k social mentions)

Taking the top spot for the most popular social media dance craze is Gangnam Style. The Korean single was released in the Summer of 2012 – making the relatively unknown K-pop artist Psy a worldwide sensation overnight. The music video for the song has been viewed on YouTube over 3.2 billion times, going viral across the globe with everyone from the Evian babies to the US navy creating their own version of Psy’s Gangnam style.

No 2. Thriller by Michael Jackson (399k social mentions)

Michael Jackson’s iconic ‘Thriller’ single was released back in 1983.

No 3. Harlem Shake (160k social mentions)

The Harlem Shake was a street and hip-hop dance originating in Harlem, NYC in the 1980s. However, in early 2013, an internet meme in the form of a video where people dance to a small section from the ‘Harlem Shake’ song went viral, with millions of offices, universities, celebrities and even the Norwegian Army and The Simpsons creating and uploading their own versions.

No 4. Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show (68.6k social mentions)

The Time Warp dance featured in the 1975 rock musical, The Rocky Horror Show. The much-admired song made it into the UK Singles Chart and the music video featuring The Time Warp dance has received over 2m views on YouTube.

Fifteen-year-old and Instagram influencer (with 2.2m followers), The Backpack Kid is thought to have invented the ‘floss dance’ which consists of stiff arm swinging back and forth around the hips. Already well known on social media, the floss went viral when Russel performed on Saturday Night Live during Katy Perry’s Swish Swish performance, receiving over 18M views on YouTube and teaching everyone from Will Smith to the Good Morning Britain presenters how to perfect the repetitive movement.
