This incredible shirt showcases everyone's favorite viral sensation from the 1990s, the Dancing Baby! Also sometimes referred to as the "Baby Cha-Cha" or the "Oogachacka Baby", this 3-D rendered animation was one of the first viral videos to sweep the nation. The origins of this future pop culture icon can be traced back to a company called Unreal Pictures Inc. where a group of animators used a computer graphics program called Autodesk 3ds Max to create a goofy dancing animation that could be applied to a variety of pre-rendered models. Kinetix, a division of Autodesk, exhibited a demo of the Dancing Baby at a computer graphics conference in 1995, but the clip didn't start circulating until a little later.

Other animators and Autodesk customers created their own video clips of the baby and began circulating them on internet forums and through email, and the baby's popularity spread like wildfire. The Dancing Baby even made an appearance on mainstream television in 1998, showing up several times in the drama series Ally McBeal. This is where the animation gained the nickname the "Oogachacka Baby", as it appeared accompanied by the song "Hooked on a Feeling".
