Created by American Sign Language interpreter Libbey Ketterer, the sign version of ‘Wap’ was shared at the end of August but has gathered momentum in recent days.
The surprisingly raunchy (who knew sign language could be raunchy?) version has now clocked almost 1.5 million views, and to be honest it’s pretty brilliant.
Ketterer shared the clip on her YouTube channel called ‘The Daily Sign’. She’s been learning ASL since high school but is not deaf, and launched the channel six years ago.
Fans are absolutely frothing on her signing of the line; “I don’t wanna spit, I wanna gulp/ I wanna gag, I wanna choke/ I want you to touch that lil’ dangly thing that swing in the back of my throat.”
In a separate TikTok video, she explained “CL-1 finger representing uvula, mouth open to indicate inside of mouth. Wiggling to indicate ‘dangly’. CL-BJ Touch (aimed at uvula CL).”
‘WAP’ remains the #1 single in Australia this week, staying at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart for another week.
