Louis Theroux’s rap remade in the style of Linkin Park

If you are a TikTok user or a fan of Louis Theroux weird weekends series, you might be familiar with the trend currently making the rounds on the web: the rap song “Jiggle Jiggle”.

Specifically, it was the track Theroux wrote on the show in 2000, during its episode that saw him travel to New Orleans to interview members of the local rap scene. Under the guidance of the musicians, the adorably goofy presenter wrote his own lyrics and even got to rap for American radio listeners.

Now, two decades later, the rap has been picked up on the video-sharing platform, remixed with background music, and then shared countless times as reactionary dance videos and revamped rearrangements. .

For example, TikTokker John Sevilla, made his own version in the style of rap metal heroes Linkin Park.

By taking the flow of rap and layering it on At the end – which, oddly enough, was also released in 2000 – mixing the two sounds makes an earworm almost as powerful as the original jingle.

As of this writing, Sevilla’s version has garnered an impressive 338,000 likes and 2.1 million views.

His version Linkin Park wasn’t his first attempt at remixing rap either, he actually did other creations in the style of Limp Bizkit – or as he calls them, Limp Biscuits – and also Weezer.

What really tickled us was this TikToker spin-off kaijunoink, who made a dance video to go along with it, amassing a total of 1.7 million views and 322.4 likes.

For those unfamiliar with Theroux’s creation, the lyrics are: ‘My money don’t shake, don’t shake, it bends/ I wanna see you wiggle, wiggle, that’s for sure/ Makes me wanna dribble, dribble, you know/ Ride in my Fiat/ You really gotta see it / I’m 6 feet 2 in a compact / No slack but luckily the seats move back / I have a way of relaxing / In my head, I feel good / And I’m sipping red, red wine’.

Extra points if you manage to learn to rap yourself…
