So what is the Flip the Switch challenge?
TikTok Flip the Switch Challange
Essentially, it requires two people to trade places—and usually entire outfits as well—at a crucial point in Drake's 2018 single "Nonstop": "Look, I just flipped the switch." However, earlier versions, which can be traced back to November 2018 according to Know Your Meme, were a little different.
The more recent videos feature celebs like Camila Cabello, Howie Mandell, and Emily Ratajkowski doing the challenge, and there are quite a few traditional gender-swapping takes. Audio used in a November 2019 clip from user @dallinxbella has now been used in more than 76,0000 TikToks.
Of course, people got a little more creative with the challenge.
While the trend starting taking off again before the Warren clip, that one apparently caught the attention of Drake, who commented on SNL's post: "Wow I need to come home."
