This Father Son TikTok Duo Are Going Viral For Their Spot On Impersonations That Are A Must Watch

People are looking to TikTok for pretty much everything these days. And for good reason, you can really find just about anything on the platform. From vegan cooking hacks and DIY crunch wrap videos to fashion trends and dance challenges, TikTok has become a hub for all sorts of incredible content.

Now, it’s also home to these incredible videos from a father son duo that are going viral for their incredible impersonation capabilities. The queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race better watch out, because five-year-old Brice has some serious lip-syncing skills.

A father and son TikTok duo are going viral for their recent impersonations.

Randy Gonzalez and his tiny son Brice go by the enkyboys on TikTok. The account highlights how Gonzalez’s bond with his son is wholesome, fun and transformative. The pair, who are from Texas have amassed a giant social media presence, with more than 7.3 million followers on TikTok and 413,000 on Instagram.

Some of their most popular videos recently have been their lip-syncing of Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan’s character from a scene in Rush Hour 2 and a scene from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air where Brice plays the role of Will Smith. There’s also a video of Randy and Brice lip syncing to Justin Timberlake’s song “Mirrors” as Randy pretends to spank Brice.

But now, their TikTok presence has catapulted them to fame as they get attention from some of the world’s biggest celebrities. Over the weekend, in response to the attack on the Capitol, Brice and his dad Randy recreated the viral “Elizabeth from Knoxville” video – the pro-Trump rioter who was maced in the face after attempting to attack the Capitol.

But it’s this masterpiece right here that has struck gold on the Internet.

After being tweeted at by Ava Duvernay, the video that Brice and his dad Randy did impersonating “Elizabeth from Knoxville” catapulted to the top of the TikTok trending and now has more than 1.2 million likes!

It’s really incredible to watch as five-year-old Brice totally nails the entire mood of that video.

Started making TikTok videos after leaving prison as a way to break stereotypes.

When he launched the TikTok channel, Gonzalez had recently got out of prison and was looking for ways to combat stereotypes –

not just about men who look like him, but those with criminal records. He’s no hardened, scary hustler lurking in the shadows. Gonzalez is funny, vulnerable and loving.

The father told his story in a series of viral clips. When Gonzalez was released from prison he was called a criminal, loser and deadbeat. But he overcame those degrading labels because he loved his children. As a former convict, the dad struggled to get work. That’s when Brice taught him how to use TikTok.

The pair know how to work together for TikTok gold.

The duo have gained the attention of fans and celebrities from all walks of life. In fact, they were recently on Steve Harvey’s Facebook Watch Show Steve on Watch. Harvey especially enjoyed their video where they recreated a scene from the 2012 comedy Think Like a Man.

“I like doing [the videos] because they’re fun and people like me [and] smile,” Brice told Harvey during their interview. “I like being funny. I love TikTok.”

The TikToker Who Put Fleetwood Mac Back On The Charts Will Perform At The Inauguration’s Virtual Parade

TikToker Nathan Apodaca has been giving many of us hope as he’s seemed to have had a pretty great past year – despite everything that’s been going on in the world.

Now, it’s been announced that he’ll get to participate in this year’s presidential inauguration festivities. Thanks to white nationalist terrorists and threats made against several targets in the nation’s capital, that inauguration will look very different this year but we’re still excited to see what Apodaca comes up with for his part in the virtual parade.

Nathan Apodaca, known on TikTok as @420doggface208, will take part in a virtual inauguration event.

TikTok star Nathan Apodaca, who went viral in 2020 for a video in which he drinks cranberry juice from the bottle and lip-syncs along to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” will be a part of President-elect Joe Biden’s virtual “Parade Across America” inauguration celebration, local Idaho newspaper the Post Register reported.

Apodaca, an Idaho Falls resident also known by his social media handle “DoggFace,” became one of the country’s top social media stars last fall after one of his videos, filmed on the way to work in September, went viral. The success of the video not only brought Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks to TikTok to create Apodaca’s vibes, but also catapulted the 1977 single “Dreams” into a Billboard Hot 100 chart placement in 2020.

Apodaca’s agent, yes TikTokers have agents these days, told the Post Register that his contribution to the virtual event will be a video of him skateboarding that was filmed in his home town of Idaho Falls.

The event, “Parade Across America,” is a reimagination of an in-person inauguration parade.

This year’s inauguration will look very different from years past. Not only is it coming on an historic attack against the U.S. Capitol, but it also won’t include the outgoing President and First Lady.

The event is being dubbed the “Parade Across America” and is a sort of reimagination of an in person inaugural parade. Both President Biden and Vice President Harris are set to participate in the festivities after they’re sworn in and make a brief visit to Arlington National Cemetery. The event will feature people and representatives from all 50 states and several U.S. territories

Other stars joining include Jon Stewart, Andra Day, and The New Radicals, uniting for the first time in 22 years to perform their iconic song “You Get What You Give.”

These Nuns Have Become TikTok Sensations Because of Their Hilarious Videos

These Nuns Have Become TikTok Sensations Because of Their Hilarious Videos

When you normally think of a Catholic nun, images probably come to mind of a stern and serious older woman who is quick to scold. But this group of nuns on TikTok go against every one of those stereotypes.

The Daughters of Saint Paul has recently become a TikTok sensation because of their hilarious and playful viral videos.

The Boston-based convent has racked up almost 56k followers from just a handful of videos that they’ve posted to the popular social media platform. The sisters have only posted three videos, but they’ve already gotten over 965.k likes and 6 million views.

The sisters have posted videos of themselves dressed up as ghosts while wandering around the convent grounds, what they’ve dubbed the “Holy Ghost photo shoot”.

There is another surprisingly funny video of themselves recreating the internal struggle of resisting Satan. The video is captioned “Thinking about giving into temptation” and set to the TikTok favorite song “Is This Available”. More than anything, its the committed performances of the two nuns that elevate the video to hilarious levels.

And of course, the Daughters of Saint Paul also posted the “This or That challenge” set to the ’80s Run DMC classic “It’s Tricky”. In this one, a group of the nuns split off into different groups based on what they prefer. The categories are super specific: “Morning prayer” is pitted against “Evening prayer” and “rosary” is pitted against “divine mercy chaplet.”

The sisters seem to have struck a chord with viewers because the videos are wholesome, lighthearted, but most of all, unexpected.

The joy and playfulness of the Daughters of Saint Paul have made them bonafide celebrities of the TikTok world. Their comment section abounds with praise like “This is EVERYTHING–y’all are the best,” and “This is so wholesome I love it here.”

Commenters also refer to their account as “NunTok”. There are also people asking for the nuns to pray for specific issues in their lives–like conceiving a baby or passing a test. It truly is one of the oddest corners of the internet.

The account appears to be run by Sister Bethany, a young media-savvy nun who has her own popular TikTok page.

In one informative TikTok, Sister Bethany explains why this particular convent of nuns is so present on social media, saying that they are “media nuns” and they use their talents to create content for their faith. But they also have guidelines about what they post.

“We the sisters are always asking ourselves, ‘Is this a good use of time?’ ‘Am I putting out things that are good, true, and beautiful?’,” said Sister Bethany. “And those are things we can all ask ourselves. And those are the ways we moderate our social media use.” No matter your beliefs, that’s definitely some great advice!
