    We Have Anna Kendrick And Snoop Dogg To Thank For The "Here Comes Santa Claus" TikTok Trend

    I'd love to see Snoop in a riff-off.

    If you've been scrolling through TikTok recently, you've definitely seen the "Here Comes Santa Claus" dance where (most) people adorn themselves in some sort of Christmas garb and do this little jig.

    Got the whole reindeer squad.

    The song is incredibly catchy, but what many people may not remember is that it actually originates from a scene in Pitch Perfect 2.

    More specifically, it's from the scene where Snoop is trying to record a remix of "Walking In A Winter Wonderland" at the studio where Anna Kendrick's character (Beca) works.

    Beca jumps in and provides her own vocals and beats on the demo.

    The dance has been trending for over a month since BFFs, @karawardddd and @laneyysgrig, first created it back in early November.

    Some light pre-Thanksgiving Christmas fun.

    People quickly started uploading their own versions.

    It took a couple of weeks, but the TikTok world eventually made the connection with Pitch Perfect 2.
