In 1996 DANCING BABY was created as a 3D animation to the song "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede.

The animation was created by Michael Girard and was initially used as a test to showcase the capabilities of NEW computer graphics software. However, it quickly gained popularity when it was shared on the internet, eventually becoming the first viral meme.

The dancing baby meme has since been referenced in a variety of media, including TV shows and movies.
