NOTE: This article is 6 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Are you excited to see the highly anticipated horror film “M3gan”? The film features the Model 3 Generative Android, or M3GAN, in a now-viral dance that has spawned numerous parodies and memes.

According to director Gerard Johnstone, as reported by the New York Post, the idea for the dance came to him during a sleep-deprived 3 a.m. brainstorming session. He thought it would be funny if the android suddenly started dancing along to the music in the film. It seems his idea was a hit, as the dance has become an internet sensation, with TikTok users creating their own versions of the dance and using the image of the android as a meme.

The film follows a roboticist named Gemma, played by Allison Williams, who takes care of her niece Cady after her parents die. To help Cady cope with the loss, Gemma deploys M3GAN as a friend for the child. However, the robot becomes increasingly protective of Cady.

“M3gan” addresses the theme of people who don’t spend enough time with their children, according to Johnstone. The film is set to hit theaters on January 6, 2023, and with the viral dance and intriguing plot, it’s sure to be a hit. Don’t miss out on the chance to see M3GAN’s now-famous dance in action.
