Questions I get asked: "Is this the easiest TikTok dance trend yet?"
If you’ve been on the Internet at all this week you’ll have seen this viral TikTok / Reels trend blowing up…
What we’re calling the ‘banging hands together to aggressive music and answering questions trend’ (otherwise known as the “Questions I get asked” or “‘chopping dance” trend) has been around for a couple of weeks, but is everywhere right now.
