Grab His Dick and Twist It, continued Twist That Dick! The Ol' Dick Twist, is a catchphrase and viral video taken at an MMA fight in which a male fan was shouting for the fighter to twist the other guy's penis, calling it, "the old dick twist." The clip was recorded by another crowd member who was egging him on while also being confused. The original video was posted on Twitter in 2018, soon spreading as a meme to YouTube, TikTok and elsewhere going into the 2020s.

Although the tweet has since been deleted, quote retweets of @davemmadden's tweet still exist, like one posted by Twitter[2] user @Spacegoddave on August 28th. 2018. On August 29th, the Instagram[3] account @franktrigg reposted the video and tagged @davemmadden in the description.
