The song you know and the dance you love just landed We Are Toonz a deal with the Coca-Cola brand.

According to Vibe, the creators of the Nae Nae song and dance craze caught the attention of the beverage company after performing at World of Coke AHH stage during BET weekend this pass June,

The group's strong presence with teens and young adults reportedly helped seal the deal.

In the 90-second commercial, the group can be seen rehearsing choreography to no avail but after taking a swig of the cold drink the group is finally able to perfect their fancy footwork.

The clip, released yesterday (Aug. 11) has since been removed from YouTube.

We Are Toonz first emerged on the scene following hype behind the "Nae Nae." The song and dance quickly became a favorite on Vine an Instagram.

"It blew up around Atlanta, especially the high schools and on Vine and Instagram," Toonz member Levi explained to Access Atlanta. "Vine kept it exciting because you'd see the six seconds and want to see more."

The group credits NBA star Dwight Howard with helping spread their movement through the mainstream media.

"He saw our (earlier) video and liked it and said he had to learn the dance," Levi said.

And since then, the Nae Nae has been inescapable.

The Florida Gators basketball team did it. Ryan Seacrest held a contest to do it. Jennifer Lopez and Chris Brown did it in their "I Luh Ya Papi" and "Loyal" videos, respectively.

"Drop That #Nae Nae," has landed on several Billboard charts including Hot R&B/Hip-Hop and Hot Rap Songs.

We'll be sure to post the clip once it resurfaces.
