New moms are taking over the internet with this viral challenge which is equal parts hilarious and adorable.
Okay, level with me here. How many lockdown days did you manage to hold off for before you gave in and downloaded TikTok? My score is a week and a half. With the pandemic forcing us to try out literally any means possible to keep ourselves entertained, the once young-people-only app has now been invaded by us old-ish folk and I've got to admit, I quite like this takeover. It has given way to some brilliant trends and challenges which in addition to being safe (unlike the Kiki challenges, Tide Pod challenge, condom challenge, etc.) are unbelievably hilarious. Today, we're going to talk about one of our favorite new TikTok challenges: the Drop 'Em Out.
This challenge features new moms flashing their breastfed babies and filming their hilarious reactions while Wheeler Walker Jr.'s "Drop 'Em Out" plays in the background. Although the song by itself is rather problematic—after all, it's about a gross old dude asking women to pull out their boobs in the grossest way possible—breastfeeding moms have reclaimed the song for themselves and that's something we can totally get on board with.
In case you are a new mom looking to jump on to this bandwagon (and we highly recommend it), all you've got to do is place your little one before the camera, begin playing the song while fully clothed and when the beat drops, flash your kid. Film their reaction and voila! If you get the timing right, it should look something like these here:
