Bo, who was known for his musical comedy videos on the internet became a mainstream star early in his career. And on top of being a decorated comedian, he possesses an incredible ability to draw attention to issues of daily life. So it’s no coincidence that TikTok creators immediately took to using sounds from the highly relatable special. Especially considering how relevant the special is for everyone who has spent a whole year Inside.
Here are some of our favorites from the trend:
Welcome to the Internet
One of the catchiest songs from the special, “Welcome to the internet” is a song about the occasionally borderline horrifying realities of the internet. In the song, Bo also makes light of how we’ve come to accept the unfiltered nature of it all.
Welcome to your For You page
TikTok creator Abigail Barlow’s cover of the song meanwhile has become an instant sensation on TikTok. Giving the song a TikTok twist with the title “Welcome to your For You page”, Abigail’s cover drew attention to the algorithm-based consumption of media online. And covers of the cover would soon follow.

A note on the unavailable TikToks: TikTok seems to have removed the sound that many of these videos used. We’re following the situation, and we’ll replace the unavailable TikToks if there’s any update on them.
