About

Yeet is a choreographed dance stylized by dipping one’s shoulder in rhythmic steps with both hands out in front and knees bent as if the performer is riding a bicycle. It became popular in February 2014 after footage of people performing the dance were uploaded to the video-sharing sites Vine and YouTube.

Origin

While little is known as of yet about the story behind the dance, Houston, Texas-based producer and video blogger Marquis Trill[5] has credited five individuals @1ballout__ @Thefuhkinmann @KronicCaviar @AXXXXJXY @JollyceM @SmashBro_KB as the creators of the Yeet. The earliest known video of someone performing the yeet dance was uploaded by YouTuber Milik Fullilove on February 12th, 2014 (shown below).



Spread

On February 28th, 2014, the hip hop song “Yeet” by Quill featuring Showtime & Yeet Squad was uploaded to YouTube (shown below).



On March 1st, 2014, a Facebook[1] page titled “Yeet Dance” was launched, gaining over 29,000 likes in the first month. On March 14th, YouTuber MarQuis Trill uploaded a video demonstrating how to perform the yeet dance (shown below, left). On the same day, YouTuber Denzel Meechie uploaded a music video titled “Official #Yeet,” featuring the purported creators of yeet identified by their Twitter feeds @1Ballout_[3] and @SmashBro_KB[4] (shown below, right).



Lil Meatball Vine

On March 20th, Viner Jasmine Nicole uploaded a Vine video of a young boy nicknamed “Lil Meatball” performing the dance at a school track (shown below). Within two weeks, the video gathered upwards of 122,000 revines and 104,000 likes.



On March 29th, Viner Noe Vazquez uploaded a remix of the vine dubbed with part of the rap song “A Milli” by Lil Wayne (shown below, left). On April 1st, Viner amvzinrnc uploaded a version of the video with guns edited into Lil Meatball’s hands (shown below, right).
