Lol, imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
Left, right and centre all over our feeds, TikTok on TikTok, the short clips of people doing whatever they can for their videos to go viral are crazy and oddly extremely addictive. For those of us who were super into Vine, these snippets are pretty much the closest thing we’ll get to the now dead-app. RIP.
And just like viral vines, we have viral TikToks
This TikTok of Pakistani men doing a dance routine to ‘Lagdi Lahore’ went absolutely viral on social media

You may have stumbled upon it because it’s ICONIC, now.
And honestly, bravo for that confidence. The movement of the hips matched perfectly with the song and take a look at the expressions! What attention to detail and what dedication to character.

^ Artistic liberty?
But anywho, now people are recreating that viral video
One person on Twitter who made a thread of iconic desi TikTok videos recreated it because people kept on commenting on the post for a remake. And it was pretty spot on.
YOU GUYS ASKED FOR IT SO Y’ALL GOT IT

All of the guys in the video pulled off a pretty great remake and lmao, it didn’t stop there.
People have been sharing their own remakes of the video and it’s basically a TikTok trend of its own now

Some people who couldn’t get enough friends to agree to do it had no problem playing multiple roles on their own

Gotta love that confidence.
What a solid day for TikTok and what a solid day for those of group of guys who probably never saw it coming. Have you seen the video? What do you think?
Oh and btw, here’s an entire thread of gems from the same TikTok-ing bros from Pakistan.
