Creator @Liljahfreebandz’s skidabop dance has taken on a new form after TikToker @Car.shearer added his own moves, sped it up, and shot the video from creative angles. The skidabop is marked by bopping up and down while quickly moving your arms in-and-out and side-to-side. It is performed to SchoolBoy Q’s “Collard Greens” featuring Kendrick Lamar mixed into Drake’s “Doing It Wrong.”

@Car.shearer hit the original choreo, before punching his arms downward, followed by pounding his fist towards the floor and stepping outwards from side-to-side.  He skipped TikTok’s “Disco” effect which are typically seen in skidabop TikToks. @Car.shearer’s July 20 video was a hit and has since received over 1.5 million likes and 6.8 million views. There are over 4100 videos linked to his sound.

@Car.shearer’s sharp motions reminded many users of characters in Fortnite, SIMS, and Minecraft, resulting in internet users creating edits of him in video games on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

Internet users are encouraging others to get in on the fun, as a green screen template is already on YouTube.

TikTokers also can’t get enough of it, with many duetting @Car.Shearer and creating shot-for-shot remakes.
