One of the most high-profile trends or challenges over the past few months has been the so-called Foot Shake Dance, also referred to as the Oh Na Na Na Dance or Challenge.
And now, thanks to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, fans have thought up a new use for the dance as a possible alternative greeting to the traditional handshake.
