It goes without saying that Piko-Taro's "Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen (PPAP)" dance was THE viral sensation of 2016, but as the year winds down, it appears that the goofy dance may have finally be usurped by a new dance craze!

A new J-drama titled "We Married as a Job!" premiered in Japan recently, but it isn't the drama that have viewers hooked - what has viewers captivated is the show's catchy theme song, titled "Koi", and it's accompanying dance moves!

Affectionately called the "Koi Dance", the cast performs the dance at the end of each episode and it involves a series of cute moves that includes tapping your chest and quickly swapping two fingers to one.

Check out the whole dance here and try not to get caught up in the craze!

This cute new dance has swept across Japan, so much so that famous celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon - including Olympic gold-medallist figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu!

While the "Koi Dance" is a tad longer than PPAP, there are more episodes of the show still to come, so don't expect this new craze to go away anytime soon!
