“Excuse me, brah” is the newest sound to take over TikTok, but where does it come from? Find out by reading on.
Bloody Mary by Lady Gaga took over the app in November after it was used in The Addams Family-themed Netflix show Wednesday, starring Jenna Ortega.
Then, during the holiday season, classic Christmas songs like “All I Want for Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey and “Last Christmas” by Wham! went viral.
Now that it’s almost the new year, TikTok users are remaking the “Excuse me, brah” skit from a very well-known comedy film…
Excuse Me Brah Tiktok Sound Viral
The viral sound is from the American comedy Zoolander, which came out in 2001.
It’s about a fashion model named Derek Zoolander, who is played by Ben Stiller. When his rival Hansel, played by Owen Wilson, wins Male Model of the Year, Derek loses hope.
In a dramatic turn of events, a designer offers him a runway show to boost his career, but he ends up getting him to kill the prime minister of Malaysia instead.
In the funny scene, Owen Wilson says, “Excuse me, bro,” and Ben Stiller says, “You’re excused… I’m not your brother, either.”
The Zoolander Fever Has Hit TikTok
Someone put the famous Zoolander scene with the Timbaland song “Give It to Me” to make the trend.
As Derel and Hansel joke with each other, the song says, “If you see us in the club, we’ll be acting real nice. If you see us on the floor, you’ll be watching all night.”
People on TikTok are acting out famous scenes with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson by looking at each other the same way and lip-syncing.
