The Dougie was popularized in Southern California around the same time or slightly after The Jerk in 2009. The origins of the hip hop dance come from Dallas, Texas, where, in 2007, a rapper named Lil’ Wil came out with a single called “My Dougie,” in which he danced similar moves to an 80’s rapper named Doug E. Fresh.
The dance was eventually taught to the future members of Cali Swag District, who filmed the music video, “Teach Me How to Dougie,” on the streets of Inglewood. The dance consists of a combination of 3 simple steps. The likes of Chris Brown, Reggie Bush, Wolf Blitzer, and Michelle Obama have all been seen doing The Dougie.
