Summary List Placement

Dr. Phil is one of the latest TikTokers to join in on a dance trend set to The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s song “Stay,” with a drone capturing footage of him busting moves on a dusty road. 

The video, which was posted on the talk show host’s official TikTok account with 6.9 million followers, shows him shuffling away on a shrub-lined street with wireless earbuds perched in his ears. To date, the video has amassed approximately 6.6 million likes and 31.6 million views. 

“How’s my choreography, @totouchanemu?” the caption on Friday’s video reads, shouting out the TikTok user who kicked off the drone-filmed “Stay” dance trend. 

“Stay,” a collaborative single from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on August 9 after weeks of it going viral on TikTok.  

On July 28, TikTok user @totouchanemu posted a video that showed him using a drone to record himself dancing outside to “Stay.” The video went mega-viral, amassing over 33.3 million likes and 191.7 million views to date.

In the time since that first viral video, @totouchanemu has posted numerous different recreations, including a collaboration with TikTok creator-turned-musician Bella Poarch and multiple takes filmed in Los Angeles. 

But that choreography actually originated with TikTok user @maxtaylorlifts, who posted a video dancing to “Stay” on July 25 that has 8 million likes and 59.1 million views. Another version of the video, posted on the creator’s alternate TikTok account, is just as viral, with 9.8 million likes and 56.8 million views.

@maytalorlifts’ moves and @totouchanemu’s drone angles have sparked a wave of viral recreations on TikTok, including Dr. Phil’s.

“daddy phil ice cold,” @totouchanemu wrote.

“I learned from the best,” Dr. Phil replied.
