The original TikTok clip showcased Gordon and collaborator Audrey Trullinger donning Y2K club-inspired outfits while delivering an energetic lip-sync performance around the Oculus Center in New York City. The skit drew inspiration from the visual style of Eurodance music videos.
Reflecting on the unexpectedly rapid rise of the song, Gordon expressed amazement at the enthusiastic reception from Eurodance enthusiasts, who swiftly embraced the track despite its limited exposure. He credited part of the song’s success to the recent release of the Barbie film, which led to discussions about the iconic “Barbie Girl” song by Europop band Aqua. This chain of associations, including the broader Eurodance genre, inadvertently contributed to the track’s popularity.
In other news, the Barbie film has achieved a significant milestone, crossing the $1 billion mark at the global box office just two weeks after its release.
