Harry Styles, who took home Teen Choice Awards for Top Hottie and Best Smile on Sunday night, gave the Internet something else to appreciate -- his twerking skills.

In a nod to the backside-busting dance move previously performed by Miley Cyrus in a unicorn onesie, the 19-year-old One Directioner stepped out of his seat to give hosts Darren Criss and Lucy Hale a taste.

Cue the Twitter meltdown.

The hashtag "#HarryDroppedThatThunThunThun" started trending as One Direction fans gleefully shared GIFs of his twerking.

I CANT STOP WATCHING HARRY TWERKING SOMEONE TAKE MY LAPTOP AWAY FROM ME OK

Despite the ecstatic response from the fans, Styles seemed pretty embarrassed about the whole thing. He immediately sat down and covered his face, later tweeting: "Note to self. Don't 'twerk.'"
