The new Fortnite Frolic Emote has been introduced and the community is pretty hyped up about the new rhythmic emote. The Frolic Emote features an original song rather than the Hatsune Miku cover of the song “Ievan Polkka” by Loituma, the song traditionally associated with the meme and used in the original video.
Emotes can be purchased in the Item Shop using V-Bucks or unlocked in the Battle Pass. An emote is a way to express yourself on the battlefield in many bizarre ways. The article speaks on the latest Fortnite Frolic Emote and how interested players can get it.

‘Nothin’ gets you down.‘
The new Frolic is an Icon Series Emote in Fortnite: Battle Royale, that can be purchased in the Item Shop for 500 V-Bucks. It was first released in Chapter 3: Season 1. The emote has moves that let players interact with each other by waving, dancing, or doing any number of other moves at any given time.
Frolic’s choreography belongs to noumoe913 on Twitter, also known as the “Leek Dance Farm Girl”. It originates from her video on the Japanese video platform Niconico Douga, titled ‘Ievan Polkka’ on July 20th, 2011, and was her take on the popular “Leekspin” meme.
Emotes were introduced early in the game and were quite simple. As more and more emotes were added, Fortnite decided to create the BoogieDown contest, where all players could post a video of themselves making a whole new dance, and the best would be added into the game.
The emote is an Icon series emote of Fortnite which means it is one of the premia emotes in the game. The dance is not the complete song itself, rather an excerpt from the chorus of it in a loop. Emotes in the game was always a fan-favorite. They are cosmetic items available in Battle Royale and Save The World, from dances to taunts to holiday-themed.
This item is cosmetic and hence it does not affect the game in any way beyond being a visual modification that also entertains us with its music and the movements of our character when performing the dance.
Fortnite offers a huge selection of Emotes and Emoticons for players to equip. The latest from Fortnite before stepping into Chapter 3 is a Fortnite Frolic Emote. The skin that we have equipped will perform the dance whenever we want once we buy it.
