The “Shake That Laffy Taffy” dance on TikTok is marked by hitting your knees, booty popping, the wave, and crossing arm motions. The dance, which is performed to FlyBoyFu’s “Laffy Taffy (Remix)” produced by Adub, was created by @waves.likes.lanes. The dance became popular on the app in mid-July. The audio is linked to over 2.2 million videos.

Unfortunately, like that of Jalaiah Harmon’s “Renegade” dance, the “Shake That Laffy Taffy Girl” dance was mistakenly credited to another TikToker. But on July 14, @Waves.like.lanes shared a clip of herself first performing the dance on Dubsmash two years ago.
