Senior Alayna Lohaus went viral last April during prom season for posting a video of her and her boyfriend Ethan McCoy to show off their prom outfits. The video they posted on TikTok ended up getting 1.6 million views and close to 300,000 likes.

“This caused me to gain a lot of followers from TikTok and Instagram,” Lohaus said. “I still get more views on my videos than I did before depending on what I post.”

Going viral is something someone never really expects to happen. Things people post can blow up at any time even on a drive home.

“I remember we were driving home and I was shocked when I got 5,000 likes, I thought that was a lot, Then it just kept getting more and more, it was crazy,” Lohaus said

As well as Lohaus, senior Aiden Manthey went viral on TikTok for “RKO’ing” senior Sam Wilson at a volleyball game. Famous wrestler Randy Orton was in the stands for this game and during a timeout, they did this famous move in front of him and the crowd went wild.

“I thought this would be a funny idea, so in between sets, me and Sam did it in front of the student section and they went crazy,” Manthey said. “Famous accounts like Barstool, ESPN, Sports Center, House of Highlights, and many others reposted it.”

Senior Parker Smith who recorded and posted the original video gained many followers from it and got 177,100 views and 30,000 likes.

“It was pretty cool because I didn’t really expect it to go that viral. I kind of thought it would be funny and it went way more viral than I thought because we saw news articles about it,” Wilson said.

It’s many peoples dream to go viral on social media, but for senior Mason Mitchell, his fame came from his dad. Mitchell posted a video at a Pitbull concert back in September of 2022 of his dad dressed as pitbull posing with fans. Since Mitchells dad is an extreme look-alike of Pitbull, it gained lots of attention on TikTok, getting 17.8 Million views.

“I was expecting to get some views but I did not expect it to get as many views and likes as it did,” Mitchell said.
