At the risk of sounding like every failed tabloid gossip writer, Louis Theroux may have just broken the internet. Following the ridiculous and completely warranted success of his viral hit Jiggle Jiggle, the British documentarian has followed it up with an official music video and it stars the king of self-promotional singing himself, Jason Derulo. Needless to say, the new parody presumably has the pencil-pushers at Triple J ready to launch this piece of audio irony into the Hottest 100 for next year.

The new creative remix comes after footage of Theroux rapping on Amelia Dimz’s cult show, Chicken Shop Date, went viral earlier this year. The lanky Brit was discussing an episode of his BBC Two series Weird Weekends from 2000, where he met and collaborated with a series of North American rappers, when he revealed he had, in fact, indulged in a few bars of his own. When Dimz asked if he remembered any of his rap, Theroux bluntly responded by nonchalantly busting out one of the most unexpectedly bussin’ verses ever spat in a British fast food shop. Somewhat unsurprisingly, producers Duke & Jones got their hands on it and transformed it into a monster hit. At last check, the song has amassed over 70 million streams worldwide, laying the foundations for one of TikTok’s best-loved trends, and it’s about to get bigger.
Perennial trend hopper Jason Derulo has sunk his claws into the content, teaming up with Theroux and Dimz for an all-new collaboration that is, to put it frankly, a banger. What starts out as an upbeat take on the much-loved TikTok audio quickly turns into a full-scale production, with Derulo contributing two stellar verses that inject some much-needed energy. The clip opens with Theroux and Dimz back in the chicken shop, drinking red wine before they quickly ditch and jump, you guessed, a Fiat. From there, the two make their way around London, visiting different chicken shops one by one before arriving in a drive-through where to order “500 nuggets”.
Of course, Jason Derulo appears every now and then to dance and shout ‘Jason Derulo’ but even that somehow works. In terms of unexpected cameos and collaborations, this isn’t exactly the strangest. The esteemed honour belongs to Weezer and Chamillionaire for their song Can’t Stop Partying, but nevertheless, Jason Derulo teaming up with Louis Theroux and Amelia Dimz for chicken shop-themed rap about Fiats? You’ve really got to see it.
