Streamer UKOGmonkey wanted a dose of nostalgia in the form of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy but a flossing skeleton almost spelled the end of his experience.

After completing a mission, his reward was the reassembling of a skeleton, who immediately began doing the dance popularized by Fortnite.

The best part is that right before the skeleton came back to life, the streamer was talking about how great the game is and immediately stopped talking when it started dancing.

While flossing didn’t begin with Fortnite, it began with a backpack wearing kid named Russell, Fortnite has popularized the move.


It’s now the most recognizable Fortnite emote and has gone truly mainstream. Celebrities did it for a while but now it is mostly found in recess, out-of-touch news anchors, and apparently Spyro skeletons.

His Twitch chat erupted when the skeleton started dancing with calls to “KILL IT WITH FIRE” and “0/10.”

Still, this joking interaction aside, UKOGmonkey finished out his nine-hour stream in the game and seemed to really enjoy it, besides the Fortnite-fueled skeletons.
