In a now-viral TikTok, two Best Buy workers imitate customers who get irritated when they don’t know their iCloud password.

TikTok user Henry (@henryyyyg) posted the video on Jan. 21. As of Jan. 24, it received over 1 million views.

In the video, two Best Buy employees sit at a desk and pretend to look at a customer. They use audio of a person ranting and saying, “Because this shit is fucking ridiculous. This is ridiculous,” to imitate a belligerent customer.

Henry contextualized the situation with on-screen text. “When we don’t know the customer’s iCloud password,” he wrote.
