Daniel Mertzlufft made a musical number about a break-up in a grocery store (inspired by New York Summer). Thanks to TikTok’s duet feature, it grew into a hilariously creative series as people added on more and more parts.

I always cluelessly wondered what TikTok brought to the table, and this is a great demo!!

Part nine is one of those things where you know it’s coming, and you wait for it, and wait for it, and even though you know it’s coming you still yelp in surprise when it does. One of my favorite kind of gags.

I was drinking a mug of tea watching these and came perilously close to a legitimate spit take when the can of soup, well, did what it said on the tin.

It is a great reminder that there are at lot of really funny, talented, intelligent people out there. Sometimes the awful, rotten, despicable ones try to take over my head and this was a wonderful distraction!
