The Thong Song was never meant for Sisqo, but once he heard the track he couldn’t let it go. Although it was originally meant for Michael Jackson, producers Tim & Bob were won over by Sisqo's enthusiasm and fresh ideas. VICE met the creators of Thong Song to hear how G-strings and violin strings united to create this iconic song that brought thongs to the masses.

All lies! Sisqo was hanging with one of his good Judy’s and saw one of her thongs. Noticing it matched his hair, he said “let me see that thong...so I can wear it to the club tonight girl!” 😂

That iconic "thong-th-thong-thong-thong!" and "dumps like a truck" lines got me hooked up to this song until today 🎧🎧🎧 I just noticed that video thumbnail - was that Sisqo's live performance of Thong Song in MTV back in 2000? I can't find it anywhere w/ the better video quality... Now I wanted to find out what really happened to Sisqo's "Unleash The Dragon" single and its $2 million dollar budgeted music video... guys, this was how Sisqo did the Thong Song video: fiplace.info/loft/videot/g5Bqj5Kw23rMbKQ

Sisqo also changed my life a bit, I danced to this song in a competition show at a mall and won 3rd place, which was 20 years ago (I was 13 years old back then) 50$ prize which I gave my mom since we didn't have any money. but its not the money, its the inspiration.
