The idea behind the #BussItChallenge is fun and light-hearted. The challenge originated on TikTok, but you can also find it trending on Instagram. To participate in the #BussItChallenge, you need to upload a video made from two different videos. In the first one, you need to dance casually in your loungewear to Nelly’s Hot In Herre song. For the second video, you need to wear your finest outfit and dance like your life depends on it to Erika Banks’ Buss It song. Edit the two videos together, add the #BussItChallenge hashtag, and your creation will appear alongside the celebrity attempts at the challenge. Here are our favourite celebrity recreations of the trend.
