The Cool youngsters of TikTok love Mr. Bean

We typically feel a bit “old man yells at cloud” once we attempt to understand what’s trending on TikTok, the youngest and coolest of the social platforms.
But not today! Because today, astonishingly, it turns out they’re all enjoying Mr. Bean.
Mr. Bean got his own official TikTok account back in January, and has quickly built a loyal following. This video of him doing his ‘unique’ dance moves got over a million views in twenty four hours:

TikTok likes to set its users challenges, and on twenty third March it’s decided to capitalize on the love for Mr. Bean by setting a hashtag challenge called #TheMrBean:
Together with Mr. Bean, TikTok will launch a hashtag challenge, asking users to show their interpretation of the well-known Mr. Bean dance moves. The challenge will go live on Saturday twenty third March within the UK with other countries across the globe joining in as well as France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Netherlands, Australia, Mexico and Indonesia.
Ooh, we hope someone from Mexico does a mariachi interpretation.

If you’re on TikTok (we’re pretty sure the venn diagram of Giz UK readers and TikTok users is two entirely separate circles, however we’re always willing to be surprised), get prepping your moves.
