Default Our band's TikTok video has received over 277k views in just 2.5 days! Check it out!

So, our band was practicing this past Monday night, and we were working on harmonies. The lead singer says, "Let's do a short video and post it on TikTok." Being game, I came out from behind the drums, and we all sang a little. He posted it, and we went on about our business. I didn't think anything else of it.

On Tuesday, our lead singer texts and says, "That video has 10k plays!" I thought it was great! Then he typed, "Oops, that was a typo. That video has had 110k plays!!" Holy smokes. Here we are, at 277k+ views just a couple of days later.

Hope you enjoy it. Don't worry...it's a short video. You don't have to have TikTok to see it. Just click the link. Thanks!

Recently heard Tik Tok is spyware.

Hey that's incredible to get so many views! The harmonizing is great, and it's a really good song. For me the lead singer's accent is so strong it feels like an affectation in this song, but it's a minor critique of a really fun and well done performance!

Congrats on what you gotta consider a viral video at this point! Awesome.

You’re right, I don’t use it.
I sometimes wonder if the AGF is being hacked by gremlins though.
