Another day, another TikTok trend. Over the past few months, songs like Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” and Jack Harlow’s “First Class” have inspired fun dance challenges. Now, the latest song to take over the platform is Wheatus’ 2000 single “Teenage Dirtbag.” Yes, you read that correctly. A 22-year-old song has gone viral.
A sped-up version of the song is scoring videos of celebrities displaying old photos from their days as a “teenage dirtbag.” These videos begin with the person looking at the camera as the end of the first verse plays. As soon as the song’s chorus begins, a slide show of flipped photos appears on the screen to show how much they’ve changed over the years.
As of August 25, over 635,000 videos using Wheatus’ single have been shared on TikTok. In fact, the trend has gotten so big that even celebrities like Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Lil Nas X and Joe Jonas have joined in.
