"Breaking Bad" fans cannot get enough of Aaron Paul and his character Jesse Pinkman's signature exclamation, so much so that a techno track with Paul yelling "Dance Bitch!" has become an "unlikely underground sensation" according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The song is produced by Paul's friend Zen Freeman, who was the DJ at Paul's wedding this summer, and Tom Neville, a songwriter for Ke$ha.

From THR:

Inspired by Duck Sauce's track "Barbra Streisand," Freeman suggested Paul utter his signature phrase sporadically over a dance beat, as almost a proto-lyric. DJ, producer and occasional songwriter for Ke$ha, Neville was brought on to work with Freeman on the production.

“We recorded it on an iPhone,” Freeman says of Paul’s vocal. “Then I processed it and bang! The first person we played it for was Aaron.”
