A victory clasp is a double hand gesture used in celebration of one's own victory. Both hands are clasped together and shaken side to side for as long as the victory merits. The origins of this gesture are generally unknown, however it is thought[by whom?] to have been derived from an ancient Hawaiian greeting.
This gesture is now sometimes employed in an ironic or self-deprecating manner.
