Teens are always catching flack for the latest disturbing and dangerous new trend—full story at six! I mean where do we even begin? You’ve got Tide pods, cinnamon swallowing, condom snorting, butt chugging, butt chugging cough syrup… The list seems to go on and on. And thanks to the prevalence of social media, it’s easier now than ever for teens to discover what things they shouldn’t be putting into their various orifices in a variety of horrifyingly creative ways.
So, when every now and then, a trend comes along that’s just purely wholesome, we’ll take it. Such as this trend that seems to have materialized out of nowhere, which involves teen boys singing the Halo theme song in the school bathroom. That’s literally all it is.
Here, see for yourself!

Today has been a day to remember. At 7:20 AM on May 25th. 25 plus men went into the A-Hall bathroom and sang the halo theme song. (I’m posting all of them within the day) pic.twitter.com/5Xd7wNcMUe— kyle. (@KyleMatanzas) May 25, 2018
ohmygod i found the video that goes with the video that went around on here a few days ago and it’s what was going on inside the bathroom and it’s literally just 80 guys singing the halo theme song jsdhhsbdb pic.twitter.com/sTMUDOmaSc— miles edgeworth lovebot (@hyjinkx_) May 25, 2018
And then one teen found a way to put a “ladies, imagine this” spin on his video:

Imagine this. You've taken your husband and your son to go hang out with their friends. They go to the bathroom together, but a while later you realize they've been in there for a while. You go to check on them and they are singing the halo theme song. Life is good. pic.twitter.com/OJTaeAjrOQ
While most of the videos have popped up over the course of the past several days, this one on YouTube (of just one person singing in a bathroom stall) that dates back to early April may be the inspiration, which has gotten over 50,000 views so far.
But even before that, current Eagles rookie lineman Ian Park went viral for the stunt in December of 2016, back when he was still attending Slippery Rock University. Once Park heard he had a copycat, he “came out of retirement” earlier this month to defend his title.
As for why any of them are doing this, does it even matter? Sometimes it’s okay to just enjoy a thing without reading too deeply into it.
