Brent Rivera and Colleen Ballinger are among the creators throwing water at their friends and family in one of the latest trends to blow up on TikTok, and we’ve got everything there is to know about it.

What’s the trend?

In an example of simple, but effective comedy, creators on TikTok are pranking their friends and loved ones by “accidentally” spilling water all over them to a sound called Watchu You Doin’ by Mr. Hotspot and Toosi or “Ah Eh” as the audio is titled on the app itself.

The audio isn’t new, and there are already 1.5m TikToks using it. Creators have used the sound for comedic effect in a number of different scenarios since the beginning of last year, such as taking off false eyelashes or dipping cookies in milk, but the theme of spilling water has grown in the last couple of weeks.

Who’s in on it?

The vast majority of videos involve parents pranking their kids resulting in some hilarious stunned faces from babies and toddlers, often titled “no babies were harmed in the making of this video”. In some cases, it’s the other way around with kids pranking their own parents.

Colleen Ballinger, aka. Miranda Sings, tried it out with her baby who seemed to enjoy being splashed with water. Colleen captioned it “Sooo @itjojosiwa text me and told me I had to try this with my baby… he LOVED IT,” and so did 5.3m others who liked the video.

Others have tried it on their pets – Jason Derulo pranked his own dogs – and other creators just used it to prank people. Brent Rivera, Keemokazi, Lance Stewart, Corinna Kopf, and Taylor Holder have all chucked water over their friends.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
