Move over Chucky, there’s a new head honcho in the haunted town and she’s made it clear that she is coming for the number one spot. If you haven’t heard yet her name is M3GAN, and she’s here to kill you all while dancing and looking cute at the same time. Speaking of dancing, has your TikTok For You page been filled with also these videos of people doing the “Megan” dance as well? If so, you are definitely not alone. “Megan”, stylized as M3GAN when referring to the film and character, has caused a lot of commotion these past couple of weeks including becoming one of the top movies of January, dominating TikTok with the M3GAN challenge, and trolling Chucky from their official Twitter account.

Now if you’ve seen the movie (or at least the trailer), then you already know there’s a scene in the movie where M3GAN does this slight little dance routine before chasing after an unlucky fellow in the hallway.

Most are choosing to recreate this dance scene fittingly to the tune of Lady Gaga’s 2009 smash “Just Dance” featuring Akon or to Bella Poarch's song "Dolls," but you can honestly use any music that fits the dance moves. Here’s a few of our favorites from some of the creators.
