In case you’re unaware of the video, it features a Michigan football team, the Spartans, dancing around the locker room to Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston’s “Eenie Meenie” song.

It was originally uploaded by a student and videographer @rawrits.alex and got two million likes before TikTok took it down. Thankfully @rawrits.alex has uploaded it again and now it has two and a half million likes. It was filmed on the team’s last season game on 23rd October before being uploaded in November.
