‘Excuse me, brah’ is the latest sound to take over TikTok, but where does it come from? Read on to find out.
Lady Gaga’s Bloody Mary took over the app in November after it featured in Netflix’s Wednesday, which is based around The Addams Family and stars Jenna Ortega.
Then, classic Christmas songs like Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You and Last Christmas by Wham! went viral during the festive period.
WHERE IS THE ‘EXCUSE ME, BRAH’ SOUND FROM?
The viral sound is a scene from the 2001 American comedy Zoolander.
It follows the story of fashion model Derek Zoolander, played by Ben Stiller, who loses hope when his rival Hansel, played by Owen Wilson, wins Male Model of the Year.
In a dramatic turn of events to revive his career, a designer offers him a runway show but ends up convincing him to kill the prime minister of Malaysia.
The hilarious scene sees Owen Wilson saying “Excuse me, brah,” to which Ben Stiller replies: “You’re excused… And I’m not your brah.”
ZOOLANDER TREND TAKES OVER TIKTOK
For the trend, someone has combined the famous Zoolander scene with the track Give It To Me by Timbaland.
“If you see us in the club, we’ll be acting real nice/ If you see us on the floor, you’ll be watchin’ all night,” the song says as Derel and Hansel quip at one another.
TikTok users are recreating Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson’s iconic actions, looking at each other in the same way and lip-syncing the scene.
