TikTok users are tripping over the brand new ‘Piggy Dipping’ trend these days.
The trend was popularized after a TikTok user posted a video of their cat while talking to the pet.
Although the original video surfaced in late December 2021, the trend is just catching on now.
What is the Piggy Dipping video on TikTok?
The Piggy Dippin TikTok, posted by user ‘missus weeb,’ is about a cat dipping its paws into a water bowl.
However, it’s not the animal’s actions but the user’s reaction to the mess on the floor that caused the video to go viral.
The TikToker, who has close to 50,000 followers on the platform, captioned the video ‘she’s dippin dem piggies in da wata.’
The TikTok user shows the kitty’s water bowl at the beginning of the clip and then turns the camera to the pet who’s walking into the drawing room.
She’s heard saying, “Piggy dipping, Piggy Dipping at the piggy pond. Nah, you a sausage swimming in the water bowl. You dip dem fat little toes in there. Chubba bun”
Users were left in splits after listening to the TikToker talk.
While many couldn’t understand what she was trying to say, one user provided an apt translation, writing, “a plus size cat has dipped its paws into a pond of sorts and has been caught but is not in trouble.”
The video has amassed over 8 million views.
Users react to the viral videos
Many said that they couldn’t understand what the user was saying while others claimed this is what English sounds like to non-English speakers.
However, some of the viewers said that the words sounded familiar although they’d never heard them before
TikTok users start the Piggy Dipping trend
After the original video went viral on the platform, many users created their own videos using the original piggy dipping audio.
TikTok ‘Chateau Barefoot’ created her own version of the video by dressing up as a character from a Jane Austen novel and elegantly uttering the Piggy Dipping lines from the original video.
Another TikTok account ‘firstlightfarm’ created a version with actual pigs, dipping their feet in the piggy pond.”
