About

Chads Dancing To California Gurls In Friday the 13th: The Game is a viral video trend in which players of Friday the 13th: The Game perform the "shake it" emote in front of Jason Voorhees using the Chad Kensington character while wearing the "spring break 1984" clothing with Katy Perry's "California Gurls" playing in the background. The trend has spread outside the game, which has resulted in live-action fan videos involving the dance, as well as videos of characters from other video games performing the dance.

Oh shit, this is a trend? I just found the clip of soldier killing Kiryu and dancing after like 10 levels of internet telephone and just assumed it was another deranged production of the neglected TF2 fanbase.
