Cha cha real smooth is a series of image macros, depicting Barney the Dinosaur eternalized in a statue, coupled with a quote from the song; Cha-Cha Slide.
The meme was spread around in shitposts across the internet.
“Cha Cha real smooth” originates from the song of DJ Casper, titled Cha-Cha Slide.
It was released on August 2nd, 2000.
The phrase was paired with a number of images, before it was combined with the statue of Barney the Dinosaur.
The Barney statue comes from a VICE article, written in 2015, titled I Tried to Relive My Youth and All I Got Was Sad.
The article presented the readers with Storybook Glen, a nightmarish kid’s theme park in Scotland.
The lyrics were first paired with Barney’s statue in a Twitter post by @clingcling2001 on December 4th, 2018.
“Cha Cha real smooth” later appeared on various social media sites, including Instagram and Facebook.
