Dancing Barbie Dogs or Dogs Dancing to Ice Spice refers to a series of viral videos of two animated dogs dancing, named Sparkles and Lily, from the 2008 Barbie movie Barbie and the Diamond Castle. The scenes of the dogs dancing on two legs were first uploaded to YouTube in mid-2020 and became popularized on TikTok throughout 2021 and 2023, largely set to the song "In Ha Mood" by Ice Spice.
In 2008, the direct-to-DVD film Barbie and the Diamond Castle was released. At several points throughout the film, two dog characters, Sparkles and Lily, dance. On April 26th, 2020, YouTuber Barbie Darling posted a compilation of the scenes with the dogs, garnering over 34,000 views in three years. On June 26th, YouTuber Ebru Cengiz posted a compilation of all the scenes in which they dance, garnering over 206,000 views in three years (shown below). One of the earliest known memes to use the dancing dogs was posted by TikToker @barbiefancult on December 15th, 2021, and shows one of the scenes with glitched audio, garnering over 26,000 views in just over a year.
Throughout 2022, the dancing dog clips became increasingly popularized on TikTok. On July 25th, 2022, TikToker @saint_toasty posted a version of the meme in which the dogs dance to "Bad Habit" by Steve Lacy, garnering over 72,000 views in seven months.
