Torture Dance refers to a sequence from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure in which the characters Narancia, Mista, and Fugo perform a dance while torturing the character Zucchero, leading to a a bizarre sequence in which their dance is interspersed with surreal imagery. The scene was parodied online after it aired in November of 2018.
The dance was originally seen in chapter 462 of the Vento Aureo manga, published in 1995. In the scene, the characters Narancia, Mista, and Fugo torture the removed head of Zucchero by sticking fish hooks through his eyelid and frying his eye with sunlight. While this happens, the characters put on a hip hop song and dance.
On October 30th, 2016, Youtuber LordGriddlez, notable for working on the fandub for various parts of the manga, uploaded an edited video featuring the characters, cropped out of the manga, dancing to the song You reposted in the wrong neighbourhood by ＳＨＯＫＫ青. The video gained over 800,000 views (shown below).
Around the same time as LordGriddlez, Youtube user Noza Joza used footage of the characters dancing from the video game JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, placing them with the song World End Rhapsody by Nujabes and gaining over 200,000 views (shown below, left). On January 18th, 2017, Youtube user Pivot edited the same footage with You reposted in the wrong neighbourhood, which garnered over 1,500,000 views (shown below, right).
Approximately two years after the dance became popularized, the scene in particular aired on Episode 7 of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Golden Wind, on November 16th, 2018 (shown below).
The scene quickly stood out to fans of the series for its juxtaposition of over-the-top violence, surreal imagery, and goofy dance. The scene was covered by Comicbook.com the day it was released. It was also quickly parodied online. YouTuber Riverdude Covers posted a real-life recreation of the scene that day, gaining over 100,000 views (shown below, left). An edit of the scene posted by Sir Kriegon gained over 7,000 views (shown below, right).
Other parodies include an edit posted November 18th by keye necktire which placed the song in a scene from Hunter x Hunter, gaining over 2,200 views in less than two days (shown below, left). User xForts posted an analysis of the scene, gaining over 50,000 views (shown below, right).
User Pivot also created a sequel to the original well-received video "you gang'ed in the wrong repost" with the new footage from the anime. This video gained over 400,000 views in less than four days (shown below).
