LEXINGTON, Ky. (BVM) – TikTok kid, Topher, who already has over a billion views to his name, went viral again as a special guest at the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball game against South Carolina. The Kentucky MBB TikTok page posted a video on Thursday of the sensation getting some special treatment at the game, and now it’s the team’s most popular video by far.
Topher was even featured on the jumbotron at the game and gave no hesitation in saying his viral catchphrase:
“Y’all already know who I am, my name’s Topher and I think Olivia,” Topher said on the jumbotron at the UK game.
“Thanks to the University of Kentucky for giving Topher a night to remember,” — wrote Topher’s relative in an Instagram post on Friday.
But, who is Topher from TikTok and why is he viral? Topher went viral at the start of the new year after he was asked on camera which family member he would warn a stranger about if they were being introduced for the first time. His response has turned him into one of the biggest new internet stars.
A copy of the TikTok video that initially made Topher a viral sensation can be watched below — since the original isn’t available due to a temporary ban on Allycat.03’s account.
