Today, Friday April 29, the 51-year-old journalist and documentary presenter created a TikTok account and posted a video featuring his ‘My money don’t jiggle jiggle’ rap – which people went crazy for in the last few weeks and made a trend of – along with comment saying: ‘Late to the party but I made it…’
Theroux on TikTok
Although his debut post does feature the ‘my money don’t jiggle jiggle’ rap, unfortunately for fans hoping he’d recreate it the sound was simply played in the background to Theroux walking along the street.
Since then Theroux has racked up almost 80,000 followers and over 115,000 likes from the video alone – along with comments from TikTok users absolutely more than excited he’s joined the app.
The news of his TikTok debut has even made it to Twitter as people have been losing it over his new account.
Louis made the right choice with his video sound after TikTok went mad for his rapping skills after he recently starred in an episode of YouTube series Chicken Shop Date. During the episode he was asked is he remembered a rap he did in an episode of his show Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends, which aired on BBC Two way back in 2000 – in the episode he travelled to New Orleans in the hope of becoming the ‘first white, middle-class gangsta rapper’.
Of course he could remember the lyrics – which is pretty impressive after 22 years – and people thought it was hilarious, which it was.
Since then TikTok users Duke and Jones changed the rap slightly, adding a beat, and now TikTokkers are dancing to it.
Now the hope is Theroux, for his next video, will have a go at the dance – surely he’s done crazier things?
