The Snowman Challenge is the latest trend on TikTok, but what is it? Here’s how you can take part and some of the best on the app.
As Christmas nears closer and closer, TikTok is getting into the spirit in the form of the latest trend to sweep the app. Everyone loves Christmas music, right? So it’s no surprise that this challenge celebrates it.
What is the Snowman Challenge?
The Snowman Challenge sees TikTok users attempting to sing a verse from Sia’s Snowman in one breath. It might sound easy but the verse lasts 40 seconds and takes some precision, and big lungs.
Snowman is Sia’s record from her 2018 Christmas album titled Everyday is Christmas. However, this trend has surfaced two years after the song released.
How to do the challenge
To try the challenge yourself, you don’t need to use a specific audio on TikTok. Instead, users simply use the instrumental version of the song in the background while recording, which can be found here. The Challenge involves singing the lyrics from the chorus in one breath.
The lyrics are as follows:
“I want you to know that I’m never leaving,
Cause I’m Mrs. Snow, ‘til death we’ll be freezing,
Yeah, you are my home, my home for all seasons,
So come on, let’s go,
Let’s go below zero and hide from the sun,
I love you forever where we’ll have some fun,
Yes, let’s hit the North Pole and live happily,
Please don’t cry no tears now, it’s Christmas, baby,
My snowman and me.”
Watch the best attempts…and the worse
