While jqgrays original video of the character was dancing to Vivir Mi Vida by Marc Anthony, TikTokers participating in the trend have shown off Horace’s dancing skills with a variety of songs and accompanying captions.

For example, ‘itsjustgraciejustgracie’ used the filter to show Horace dancing on her couch. Her video reads: “I was trying to clean our house and Horace decided to spontaneously hop on the couch, put on our favorite Drake song, and just let loose for a little. UGH! He keeps me sane.”

Another user shared a dancing video with Horace that included a whole story about their morning together.

“Can’t believe I caught this on camera. We were in the middle of making breakfast in our pajamas and Horace secretly set up a camera and asked me to dance to our wedding song. It’s moments like this when I remember why I married this man. Love to see us vibing in our natural state,” she said.
