Azumanga Daioh Wiki

The first version.

Caipirinha Dance is an Internet meme inspired by Azumanga Daioh. Its origin is episode 20 of the Azumanga Daioh anime, where Tomo performs the dance briefly while teasing Chiyo about being childish. The scene spawned a meme where the dance is used combined with the song Caipirinha by the German singer Carinho. The original version features Tomo dancing to the song, but animated versions starring characters from other franchises soon followed. It became a success online, being compared to such memes as Caramelldansen, Paffendorf Dance and Pappara Dance. The first video was posted on YouTube in 2007. It was also spread on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga.
