New TikTok challenges and trends appear on a regular basis, and they seem to be becoming stranger by the day.
TikTok has it all, from strange cults to peculiar challenges, hilarious memes to strange songs.
People are photographing their pets while playing a sound that reads “Kill John Lennon,” but what exactly does that mean?
The latest viral trend on TikTok is a strange pet challenge.
Owners are capturing their pets’ reactions to a specific sound that says “Kill John Lennon” for this craze.
The sound is from Season 14 Episode 2 of South Park, an American cartoon sitcom.
Butters, the character in the episode, wants to kill John Lennon, but how does this relate to pets?
If you’re unfamiliar with John Lennon, he was a well-known English vocalist who was a member of the legendary Beatles band.
On December 8, 1980, he was killed in his New York City apartment. Mark David Chapman, an American Beatles lover, was the assassin who shot and killed him.
Now that you know the background, let’s get back to the TikTok craze. If a person’s pet jumps up when they hear the sound, it’s assumed that they’re bad and wish to murder John Lennon.
