WATCH: Vikings Issue TikTok Challenge, Fan Responds By Hilariously Clowning Kirk Cousins
Not every social media marketing stunt goes off without a hitch. This one from the Minnesota Vikings definitely falls into that category.
The Vikings recently issued a new challenge on the social video app TikTok, asking fans to act as a wide receiver catching a pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins in a "duet" on the app.
If you're not hip with the TikTok lingo, a "duet" is essentially a response video that features the original video, side-by-side with your response video. In the case of this challenge, fans are asked to duet themself on the other end of a Cousins pass in training camp from what I would assume is footage from last year's camp.
While I haven't had the chance to deep-dive on all of the fan responses, one is getting some particular attention online.
If you've ever been on the internet ever, you know it is full of trolls. My personal favorite is the story of Boaty McBoatface. In that same high-level troll spirit, someone took full advantage of the opportunity to take a shot at the Vikings' multi-million dollar man.
No word on whether this is a Vikings fan, a fan of another team, or just some elite troll doing what he does best. Regardless, even I (a die-hard Vikings fan) am getting a good laugh out of this video - even if it brings up a little VQPTSD (Vikings Quarterback Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) with the likes of the guys below all in recent memory.
