The latest big TikTok trend is seeing people creating funny sketches about a fictional woodchuck revolution where the world is taken over by small rodents.
Have you ever thought about how the world is going to end? Maybe it’s a zombie apocalypse, a giant meteor crashing into the earth, or a deadly pandemic. Or maybe the world will be taken over by woodchucks.
It sure seems like a bizarre thought. Why should the world be inundated with tiny squirrel-like creatures? Your guess is as good as ours, but it has become the foundation of the latest TikTok viral trend.
Here’s everything you need to know about TikTok’s Woodchuck Revolution.
Woodchuck videos are going viral on TikTok
In the past few days, a new trend has emerged on TikTok where users are creating videos about what is known as the “Woodchuck Revolution”.
The trend uses The Woodchuck Song by AronChupa & Little Sis Nora, a track that uses the popular tongue twister: “How much wood would a woodchuck if a woodchuck could clamp wood?”
If you’ve been to TikTok recently, your For You page has likely been dominated by Woodchuck videos and you may be a little confused. Let’s examine what the Woodchuck Revolution videos are all about.
The Woodchuck Revolution trend explained
It all started when a TikTok user named @piptersen uploaded a video with the Woodchuck song. He wrote on the screen:
“POV: You live in a society that has been overthrown by woodchucks, and you hear their battle song in the distance and you know that you and the resistance have to fight the final battle for your freedom.”
The bizarrely funny sketch refers to a woodchuck revolution in which humanity is overthrown by woodchucks. If you don’t know what a woodchuck is, it is a small rodent, also known as a groundhog. So it is a fictional apocalyptic event between humans and animals.
The video, titled #woodchuckchallenge, received 2.5 million views and 614,000 likes.
Getting toppled by a small army of rodents is a strange thought, but TikTok is now taking over the idea!

After the original Woodchuck video went viral, a number of other TikTok users joined the trend and voiced their views on a world that was taken over by Woodchucks. It became known as the Woodchuck Revolution and it is certainly one of the strangest trends we’ve seen on TikTok.
