The Griddy dance was originally invented by Louisiana's Allen Davis, a friend of former LSU wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, who wanted to create his own rhythmic dance after he was inspired by the Nae Nae craze in the mid 2010s. Davis created the dance and friend of his posted it on Snapchat, and the following morning, he was inundated by videos of people copying his dance. Once Chase found himself at LSU, he introduced the dance to teammate Justin Jefferson, and the pair introduced the dance to the rest of LSU's locker room. Jefferson brought the dance to a national stage during his sophomore season in 2019 in a matchup vs. Texas, when he exploded for 163 yards and three touchdowns: After his first TD, Jefferson broke out the griddy for the world to see. The dance consists of a few simple, easy parts: Tapping your heels together, throwing up your "Bs" — your "big billionaire" glasses — and swinging your arms back and forth and side to side. Now, the Griddy has swept the sports world and beyond it, so much so that the popular video game "Fortnite" introduced the dance as one of the game's emotes in 2020. #Griddy #Sports #Podcast #Revolttv #Youtube #STWFmedia sportstalkwithfriends.com
