TV personality Dr. Phil has gone viral on TikTok after he uploaded his recreation of the drone dance to the tune of ‘Stay’ by The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber.

While TikTok has become a place for a huge range of trends involving cooking, art, fashion, and more, one of the things it has always been most well known for is its dances.

From the Renegade to the Savage dance, the app has seen a huge number of short but eye-catching dances go viral and sweep the platform across the globe.

Most recently, users have been loving a dance initially popularized by user maxtaylorlifts, going viral for a video he posted on July 26. This was promptly followed totouchanemu’s drone version with racked up over 31 million likes. Even TikTok star Bella Poarch got involved.

While plenty have given the trend ago, perhaps one of the most surprising participants so far has been television personality Dr. Phil.

He uploaded his video to TikTok on August 13, with the caption: “How’s my choreography, @totouchanemu?”

It’s safe to say users didn’t expect to see that pop up on their For You Pages, and they immediately flooded the comment section with their reaction.
