A saxophone cover of Chris Brown's "Go Crazy" has become the soundtrack to a TikTok version of "Would You Rather." The cover, which was originally part of the Go Crazy challenge, has been used in more than 50,000 videos.

Elsewhere, the ultimatum was applied to walking down a hallway from Nightmare on Elm Street 3 or repeating 2020.
