A Church of England choir somehow delivered the best documentary dad ever remix (don’t @ me, you know it’s true) Louis Theroux‘s rap ‘My Money Don’t Jiggle Jiggle, It Folds’.
The St John’s Voices is a mixed voice choir from Cambridge and I’m their new number one fan after this TikTok.
Since going live early Saturday morning, the TikTok has received over 720,000 views and over 108,000 likes. Not bad, not bad at all.
I suspect that at least one of them is the man himself, Louis Theroux.
We finished the psalter a bit early this year so we had to branch out… non tinnit pecunia mea #louistheroux #rap #jigglejiggle #choirtok

The video was captioned: “”we finished the psalter a bit earlier this year so we had to branch out…non tinnit pecunia mea”.
The Latin part of the caption loosely translates to “…my money don’t ring/wave”.
Who said Latin was a dead language? Certainly not the St John’s Voices choir.
I’m usually not a big fan of church choirs, but these absolute artists have just won me over.
Here I was listening to top 40 bullshit when I could have been listening to REAL music. My life has been a complete lie up to this point.
As you’d expect, the comments section of the video is a real goldmine. I guess music is really a force to bring people from all walks of life together for a huge banger.
“Imagine people 10,000 years from now hearing this and trying to interpret the words without any context,” wrote a new fan.
“Yes, as the Gospel says ‘you must not tremble, it must fall back’,” said another before a final one wrote “I want this at my funeral tbh”. Same, man. Same.
I like the idea that Louis Theroux, arguably one of the best documentary filmmakers of our time; will be known by this generation for his viral rapping.

If anyone knows anyone who knows anyone who has Louis Theroux’s email address, please forward this TikTok to them.
It is imperative for the destiny of humanity that he hears this work of art.
