The official music video for British journalist Louis Theroux's ‘Jiggle Jiggle’ has dropped and it comes with some help from Jason Derulo.

Following the viral TikTok success of the song, Theroux has teamed up with Derulo, Amelia Dimoldenberg and electronic duo Duke & Jones, who remixed the rap.

And honestly, it slaps.

The video takes place at the cleverly named ‘Drive Theroux’, where the journalist and Dimoldenberg order ‘500 nuggets’ and drive away without paying, before heading to a chicken shop and cracking open a bottle of red wine.

Of course, Jason Derulo is seen driving a flashy car in a spectacular orange suit while busting a move or two.

But don’t just take our word for it, have a look for yourself:

YouTubers were understandably excited over the music video coming to fruition, as one wrote: “This is incredible! Louis Theroux is the GOAT!!”

Another said: “You know, when I first watched that episode of Weird Weekend’s back when I was a teenager, this is EXACTLY what I imagined happening over two decades later.”

A third person commented: “This song is unexpected, what a wonderful surprise! Thanks Jason for making this day special.”

However, one user wasn’t too impressed, writing: “Wow.. I can't believe this, Jason Derulo is really the king of surfing on the trends waves.”

‘Jiggle Jiggle’ first went viral when Theroux appeared on Chicken Shop Date. The host, Dimoldenberg, asked him if he had ever rapped before.

Theroux replied: "I have rapped in a program I did, a Weird Weekends episode about rap’ before spitting the notorious bars."

Despite filming the Weird Weekends episode more than 20 years ago, the documentarian remembered all the words perfectly, raising suspicion if he'd practised in the mirror before.

The video earned millions of views after his appearance. The song was all over social media. It quickly became a TikTok dance with Shakira, the cast of Riverdale and Selena Gomez even bopping to the rap.

But as for where the lyrics came from? Theroux revealed in Weird Weekends he was in the shower when he thought of the iconic opening line: “My money don't jiggle, jiggle, it folds.

"You don't have quarters and dimes and nickels, you have dollars, hundreds and whatever you have.

“And whatever you have, it folds."

The rest is history.
