Is this Ohio’s Most Viral Animal Video Ever?
An Ohio woman has trained her rats by singing to them, and millions of people are into it.
It's safe to say that millions of people have attempted to go viral. Even though many viral videos seem so incredibly simple, going viral is not so easy. However, the very popular social media app, TikTok, has really made way more people go viral than ever before due to their very clever algorithm and "For You Page."
Hannah Richards is a 24-year-old Columbus, Ohio resident. This animal-lover uploads video her TikTok profile 'boomboompow1996.' She's had moderate success in the past as far as video views are concerned. She's averaged between 3,000 to 20,000 views per video up until recently. One of the most recent videos of her 24 TikToks has gone mad viral. On February 8th Hannah uploaded a video of her singing to her rats, "All rats to the cage...all rats to the cage" followed by her very obedient rats doing as they are told. This simple 22-second video has been viewed 5.5 million times so far with nearly a million likes.
If I'm being honest I feel like there's a real miss opportunity here. How about singing "Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage," from the Smashing Pumpkins hit "Bullet with Butterfly Wings? Maybe that's a little too on the nose? Well, rats!
