Cali Swag District exploded onto the music scene and the radio airways this past summer with the Top 5 infectious hit "Teach Me How To Dougie" that pays homage to a dance created by legendary rapper Doug E. Fresh. Cali Swag District turned the song and dance into a pop culture phenomenon with everyone including Ellen DeGeneres, CNN 'Situation Room' host Wolf Blitzer, Wendy Williams, Monique, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian getting their Dougie on.
Even more widespread is the sports worlds' celebration of the Dougie movement. NBA Washington Wizard's rookie sensation John Wall did the Dougie during the starting line up this season that has received almost 2 million YouTube streams. In addition to Wall, athletes from Cleveland Cavaliers, NY Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors and Portland Trailblazers all have been seen doing the Dougie celebration. College teams are also embracing the dance as seen by the Oregon State Duck mascot doing the Dougie on a nationally televised game this season. All in all, The Wall Street Journal has declared 2010 "the year of the Dougie."
The "Teach Me How To Dougie" official music video has generated over 20 million YouTube streams.
