The Pump Me Up emote in Fortnite features moves by Jaedan Gomez, who took inspiration from Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” single.

TikTok star Jaedan Gomez went viral a few months ago for her “About Damn Time” dance. In addition to inspiring countless others to adopt the dance moves, the viral video also captured Lizzo’s attention.

Notably, it landed Gomez an opportunity to perform alongside Lizzo on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Now, the “About Damn Time” dance is making moves of its own elsewhere, specifically in one of the world’s most popular online games.
