Every Day I'm Shufflin'
Every Day I'm Shufflin' is a catchphrase based on a line from "Party Rock Anthem." The phrase has inspired the snowclone the "Everyday I'm X'in", which has frequently been used in image macro captions and animated GIFs. Remixes and parodies of the music video have been prevalent online since its YouTube debut in March of 2011.
The "Party Rock" shuffle is a loose interpretation of the Melbourne Shuffle, a rave and club dance that originated in the late 1980s in the underground rave music scene in Melbourne, Australia. The basic movements in the Shuffle consist of a fast heel-and-toe action with hand movements suitable for various types of electronic music.
Following the launch of the music video in March 2011, LMFAO introduced a line of t-shirts with the slogan "Everyday I'm Shufflin." On April 15th, 2011, the first YTMND site titled "Everyday I'm Shufflin" was created, which featured a GIF from the 60s Spider-Man animated series.
