About

The TZ Anthem Challenge is a viral dance challenge that spread in the fall of 2016 in which people imitate the dance moves in a video by teen social media celebrity Zay Hilfiger called "TZ Anthem."

Origin

Hilfiger uploaded the track "TZ Anthem," which features his original rap over the beat of Crime Mob's "Knuck If You Buck," to his Soundcloud account in the summer of 2016, though the track has since been removed. On August 3rd, his dance troupe called Fresh the Clowns[1] posted a video of them doing the routine to their Instagram account (Youtube embed shown below). Their video has been viewed 224 thousand times on Instagram and over 3.2 million times on Youtube.



On August 15th, 2016, Zay Hilfiger uploaded a video of himself and @___Tikitang dancing to the song (shown below).



Spread

Shortly after Hilfiger and FreshTheClown's uploads, others began posting their imitation of the dance.



The dance spread out from Black Twitter when young white girls started doing it, making them a target of mockery.



The challenge was covered by New York Magazine.[2] On November 2nd, Hilfiger and Zayion Mccall released an official video for the track (shown below)
