Ran Off Da Plug Twice is a viral dance meme in which people imitate a scene from the video for "Ritz Carlton" by the rapper Plies. The dance became popular worldwide after American football players adopted it as a touchdown dance.
The rapper Plies released the song "Ritz Carlton" as part of his "Ain't No Mixtape Bih 2" mixtape in fall of 2015; the video was uploaded as a WorldStarHipHop exclusive on November 19th, 2015. In the song, Plies says the lyric "run off on the plug twice." A plug is generally defined by Urban Dictionary as someone from whom one would purchase drugs; Plies appears to be bragging about not paying for drugs from the same person twice. Plies then says that he won't be accepting calls from the plug. The song was featured on Drake's OVO Sound Radio Episode 14 for Apple Music. The World Star exclusive video received 6 million views in the first 4 months.
Odell Beckham Jr, a star football player, notable for popularizing The Whip, was recorded listening and singing along to the song while driving in early December in a video which was tweeted by Plies. Users started dancing to the lyric shortly after this video and tagging Plies on social media shortly after; many of these videos were retweeted or regrammed by the rapper, or both. In late December, college football players at Baylor University were captured doing the running man-style dance that Plies performs in the video after getting a touchdown. The next day, players in Houston were recorded doing the dance as well; in subsequent days, during the Orange Bowl, and at other sporting events, sports players were recorded doing the dance as a means of demonstrating triumph. Soon, the dance caught on with Instagram and Vine. There are over 5,200 photos tagged with #ranoffontheplugtwice on Instagram; while there is no settled hashtag available on Vine, searches for the term bring up many results.
