What's Happening

I can’t guarantee this trend will be a magic bomb of engagement for you but it sure couldn’t hurt! This very trendy sound is called “Hoang Read - The Magic Bomb (Extended Mix).”

Creators and businesses have been using it as a way to educate their audiences about themselves by answering FAQs. The fun twist is the creator is performing a set of hand gestures. Picture the Hand Jive song in Grease. It’s pretty close.

Use it for Your Business

I’m a huge fan of any trend that showcases the personality of the business owner while educating them about the business. #WinWin!!

You can use this trend to answer most-asked questions – even if they are questions you wish people would ask. No one will know but you!

In case you need a little tutorial for the hand choreography (hand-ography??), here’s a quick primer. On the beats do the following actions:

  • Right fist out
  • Pound left fist on right fist
  • Pound right fist on left fist 5x
  • Clap
  • Make double-barrel gun fingers pointing up
  • Point them down

Repeat 3x.

If you don’t get this quite right, it’s so okay. Messing it up or creating your own version is part of showing off your personality.

Here are some examples of businesses using this trend:
