Kentucky Wildcats - Troop 41 "Do the John Wall"

As the best player in college basketball during the 2009-10 season, John Wall popularized a move where he’d flex his arm and simultaneously twist his wrist. Troop 41, a trio from Raleigh, North Carolina — also Wall's hometown — immortalized the dance with their "Do the John Wall" single in 2010, which landed on the Billboard Hot 100.
