Walker Hayes was already a big poster on TikTok and had a pretty decent following but he never expected to get the viral dance videos that his song Fancy Like has received. Originally released on June 4th, the video of him and his daughter dancing together to the track skyrocketed to over 10 million views in a few days and really opened up his audience.

The video features the pair putting their best fancy foot forward while reenacting the choreographed dance. The catchy summer tune is a fun take on some of the less glamorous aspects of life and was quickly embraced by fans for its relatability. It spent 16 weeks at number one on the country charts and has proven that TikTok can have an impact even with a country song.

But it wasn’t just the song itself that made it so popular — it was also the way it was accompanied by the viral dance. The dance is a simple one, which makes it easy for people of all ages to pick up and learn. It’s a style that is reminiscent of classic line dances and the hip-hop moves that have dominated the social media platform lately.

As such, the video has inspired plenty of copycats and has reached a huge audience on TikTok alone. Several people have been posting their own videos of themselves dancing to the track, including this girl who danced while wakesurfing. Even a Pittsburgh-based chiropractor who shares stretching tips on the app got in on the act and posted a video of himself doing the dance.
