A 4-year-old boy has made an accidental Amazon order to his aunt’s house of $2,618 worth of SpongeBob popsicles. This has triggered a viral trend where people are buying SpongeBob popsicles to review them.
TikTok users are on a quest to find the perfect Spongebob Popsicle, as many of the ice cream eaters are discovering SpongeBob SquarePants often looks slightly deformed.
Tiktok users have been in stitches as unboxing videos reveal SpongeBob to have a missing eye, no mouth or even a misshaped body. Read on to find out how the trend started!
Why are TikTok users collecting SpongeBob popsicles?
- TikTok users are collecting SpongeBob popsicles to try and find a ‘normal one’ that looks identical to the SpongeBob on the packaging. This trend has gone viral since a child accidentally ordered 51 packs of the popsicle.
People have hopped onto the trend and are jumping between supermarkets to try and source the SpongeBob popsicles. Once finding them, users are taking to TikTok to unbox the popsicles in hopes of it not having a deformed SpongeBob face. Some users are doing this challenge every day and there has already been a couple of users who have found a ‘normal’ SpongeBob instead of a ‘doodle bob’.
Unfortunately, there is no prize for finding a ‘normal’ SpongeBob apart from the thousands of people who are following the popsicle ventures and motivating the finders. A true fan of the challenge was, of course, 4-year-old Noah who used his mother’s laptop for remote learning when his iPad wasn’t working. Noah found his way into her Amazon Prime account and ordered 918 SpongeBob popsicles to be exact.
Child makes $2,618 Amazon order!
4-year-old Noah from Brooklyn, New York, has accidentally ordered 918 individually wrapped SpongeBob popsicles which Amazon said they would not take back; leaving his mother with a gigantic bill.
His mother, Jennifer Bryant, could not afford the $2,618.85 popsicle bill given she is a student at New York University and a mother of three. Therefore internet users who sympathised with the mother donated to a GoFundMe account which has now raised over $23,680.
“As a parent to a child living with ASD [autism spectrum disorder], all additional donations will go towards Noah’s education and additional supports. We cannot thank you enough. Truly,” Jennifer Bryant wrote on the GoFundMe page.
