Gang gang is an elusive slang term that can mean many things. But typically, people use gang gang to either a) agree with something someone else just said or b) refer to a group of friends.
For example, if your friend asks if you want to go to McDonald's, you could respond with "gang gang" - meaning "Yes, of course I want to go to McDonalds, why are we not already there?" Or, as another example, you could post a photo of yourself and your besties to social media and caption it "my gang gang - we're BFFs for life."
What is the origin of gang gang?

Whatever its origin, gang gang is now a common term used on social media. It is also quite popular among fans of the comedian and podcaster Theo Von, who often uses the phrase.
