The song „Jiggle Jiggle“ is a rap by BBC journalist Louis Theroux that aired in the documentary series „Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends“ in the early 2000s.
In 2022, the rap was remixed and reissued by Duke & Jones, and autotune was added. On TikTok, the song became a hit in the summer of 2022.
Jiggle Jiggle: My money don’t jiggle jiggle, it folds: origin story
The rap „Jiggle Jiggle“ was created in 2000, when the journalist Louis Theroux visited New Orleans and met the rappers Mello T, Master P and Q-T-Pie at a radio station. The meeting turned into a small rap battle during which the song „Jiggle Jiggle“ was created.
In February 2022, Louis Theroux was featured on Amelia Dimoldenberg’s YouTube show „Chicken Shop Date.“ On the show, he talked about the song at the time. Producers Duke & Jones saw the show and responded to the rap with a remix.
On March 16, 2022, Duke & Jones released the autotune-edited rap on Instagram. The video was titled „Adding auto tune to random videos.“ The video received many views and became popular. In May, they recorded the song in a professional recording studio. By June 2022, „Jiggle Jiggle“ was omnipresent on TikTok.

The question does arise: what did Louis Theroux want to say?
With „My money don’t jiggle, jiggle, it folds“ he wanted to say that he doesn’t carry change and coins around with him, but only bills. Only bills can be folded, coins cannot. This can be interpreted to mean that he wants to say that he is rich or at least not poor.
„I like to see you wiggle, wiggle, for sure“ can be interpreted as Louis Theroux wanting to enjoy the walk or movements of an attractive person.
„It makes me want to dribble, dribble, you know“ can be interpreted to mean that this person turns him on and he begins to drool.
„Six-feet-two in a compact, no slack; But luckily the seats go back“ refers to his height and a compact car. Being six-feet-two, he doesn’t have much room in a compact car, but luckily the seats can go back.
Louis Theroux’s rap was not meant to be taken seriously. He was pure fun.
