"Jerk It Out" is a song by the Swedish rock band Caesars. It was released in April 2003 as the lead single from their album Love for the Streets; it is also featured on the follow-up Paper Tigers in remixed form. The song's appearance on charts was helped by prolific use in mid-2000s media, including commercials for the iPod Shuffle, Mobiltel, Nivea, Coca-Cola (in South Africa and Indonesia) as well as a 2009 Renault Mégane spot. Furthermore, it was used in the video games Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova (arcade and PlayStation 2 versions), FIFA Football 2004, Just Dance, Need for Speed: Underground, Rock Band 3 (as downloadable content), Samba de Amigo (downloadable content for the Wii version) and SSX 3.
The song was part of the soundtrack of many films, including The Benchwarmers, Captivity, Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, Fun with Dick and Jane and Yours, Mine and Ours. It featured in trailers for Knight and Day and The Pink Panther, while the remix of the song was used in the trailer for Clerks II.
