The Brief: Over Labor Day Weekend, a video of Lindsay Lohan dancing at her beach club in Mykonos has gone viral, inspiring a slew of memes and imitations.
As she prepares for the filming of her upcoming MTV reality show about her Mykonos beach club, Lindsay Lohan seems to be letting loose and having some fun. Videos have surfaced of Lohan jamming out in a silver jumpsuit in front of a DJ booth. Her simultaneously groovy and goofy dance moves have gone viral.
Actress Busy Philipps posted a video on Instagram of her and writer Kelly Oxford imitating Lohan’s moves, commenting that the dance is “weirdly harder to nail than it seemed. Respect,” and encouraging others to try it.
Since then, a variety of memes have sprung up, some of which make fun of Lohan’s moves, while others applaud her for “living her best life.” Some, including Lindsay Lohan herself, have dubbed the dance as “The Lilo,” spreading hashtags like #TheLindsayLohanChallenge, #MykonosChallenge, and #DoTheLilo.
