#ClownCheck: ICP’s Song “Hokus Pokus” Goes Viral On TikTok App; Users Dress As Wicked Clowns

I’ve seen ninjas posting about this here and there but until I dug a little deeper into it I had no clue what this whole Clown Check shit was all about. Maybe you don’t either. So check it out, there is a social video app called TikTok that I guess is all the trend (or maybe not, I don’t know) and ninjas using the app are embracing their inner Juggalos. They’re creating Clown Check videos which go like this: A chick wearing normal make-up looks at the camera and says “clown check.” The camera then cuts to the same chick wearing wicked clown make-up with Insane Clown Posse’s “Hokus Pokus” intro playing. Specifically where Shaggy says “I-C-fuckin’-P’s in the haughhh!

Have a look at some of the videos published on TikTok below.

The #clowncheck hashtag has more than 215 million views on TikTok as I write this now so holy. Fuckin’. Shit, ninjas.

The question I ask is “why now?” I don’t have a problem with it as it seems like more of an embrace than a diss but what could be causing these users to suddenly dress up like wicked clowns and rep ICP? I feel like it’s more of the newer generation discovering the older generation and loving that shit? Maybe? Nostalgia related media is all the craze right now so who knows?

Now apparently another ICP/Juggalo inspired theme has popped up on TikTok and that my friends is “The Neden Game.” Yes.

Check out one of those videos published on TikTok below.

Even more proof people are in love with nostalgia? The Neden Game is a dope song even if everyone and their grandmother knows it (probably as “that dating game song”).

Magdalene Taylor over at MelMagazine.com posted an article up a few days ago titled “Clown Check! Inside The Controversial ‘Juggalo’ TikTok Scene.” It goes into much greater detail about the entire craze and is also coming from an outsider’s perspective.

Here is an excerpt:

CLOWN CHECK! INSIDE THE CONTROVERSIAL ‘JUGGALO’ TIKTOK SCENE

I-C-fuckin’-P’s in the house

Remember when creepy clowns were all over pop culture? Rumors about people dressed as clowns lurking at night or chasing children around with bats made national headlines in 2016, while the 2017 remake of Stephen King’s It reminded us that clowns are capable of looking within our psyches, finding our deepest fears and pulling them out of their throats like an endless chain of multicolored hankies. In one odd example of societal coulrophobia, the FBI targeted the Juggalos — the clown-makeup-clad fandom for hip-hop act Insane Clown Posse — designating the group as a gang in 2011. (ICP, working with the ACLU, suedin 2014.) America hates clowns more than it hates addressing its real problems, apparently.

And yet! There’s been a shift in recent months, and much like the success of “Old Town Road” and socialism, we can thank the teens for it.

On the super-popular social video app TikTok, the Juggalo subculture has become something of a trend. Instead of hating on clowns, TikTok’s young users are identifying as them. On the app, users create endlessly varied video interpretations of the same audio track, and here they’ve turned the ICP song “Hokus Pokus” into a meme — with more than 320,000 remixes.

    The main ones people have been using are the cussing section in “Chop Chop Slide” and part of “To Catch A Predator”. At least that’s from what I’ve seen in my time there.

    This fuckin poser shit bro. This and motherfuckers claimin juggalo when their only reference is “magnets how do they work” and seeing icp’s face more online. I feel like it’s more of a stand out attention grab thing to these people versus them actually being down. I’m all for new fans but FANS not some follow the leader trash. Plus fuck tik tok…shit annoys me so much it makes my fucking asshole itch. It’s just gonna end up being like when you see a some asshole wearing a Metallica or misfits shirt who you know without a doubt NEVER has listened to a fucking song by that band or heard a popular song of theirs. Why you frontin? Be authentic and true to yourself and you won’t look like a dick chugger

    Yeah fuck all that. Thats also one reason why i dont feel GOTJ being mainstream or encouraging reporters to go in and expose everything, despite the positive responses. Because then you get hipster fucks trying to be down all of a sudden and say whoop whoop all akwardly to me at the fuckin mall like you know me. Eat dick or keep it real.

    Not sure why so many negative comments on it. People are having fun and they are not making fun of ICP at all. What’s the harm?
