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.[1] 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;[2] 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.[3] 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.[4] 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.[5] 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.[6] The next day, players in Houston were recorded doing the dance as well;[7] 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[8] on Instagram; while there is no settled hashtag available on Vine, searches for the term bring up many results.[9]
