"Bruce Springsteen, Cher and Jon Bon Jovi are dead": the infuriating trend in TikTok - voila! culture


Bored young people film themselves announcing the death of one of their favorite stars to their relatives or friends. The sick twist? This of course did not happen and the star is alive

Young woman stresses her family that Bruce Springsteen is dead (@nataliekruse)

In Tiktok they "kill" stars - and the results are chaos.

The New York Post reported on the latest twisted trend in the social network - people responding to fake messages about the death of celebs, while being photographed.

In each of these morbid videos, the person filming the prank relays the fake "news" to friends and family, pretends to read the news online, and then films the reactions of outrage, shock and sadness.

In one video, the voice behind the camera announces: "Oh my God. Cher is dead at 81," while a group of people at the party scream in shock: "Noooo!"

In another video, a young prankster tells her mother: "Jon Bon Jovi died at age 60, heart attack."

Emma responds by yelling, "What?! Get out of here!"

Another young woman who tried to deceive her friends about Bon Jovi's death was met with a shocked reaction and a cry: "Shut up!".

It should be noted that, of course, Cher and Bon Jovi,



bon jovi dead at 60?!?!

Another girl who took one of these sick videos pretended to also be shocked by the fake news.

"Oh, my God, Howard Stern is dead at 68," she says as a man watching TV—probably her father—yells in shock, "What?!"


In another video, a woman driving with her friend gasps in shock and says, "Zac Efron is dead at 35."

Her friend starts hitting the seat as she yells "No!"

and crying uncontrollably.

@olivialovell05 telling my mom stevie nicks died (she was NOT pleased) #stevienicks ♬ original sound - olivia :)

The videos differ in details, with some abusers inventing a fake cause of death such as a heart attack, while others do not state the cause of death.

It seems that most of them did look for the exact age of the "dead" star, to add to the credibility of their "message".

@nataliekruse Pls watch till end omg.

I just ruined Bruce Springsteen's biggest fans Christamas #christmas #christmaseve #brucespringsteen #newjersey ♬ original sound - nk

In one of those brutal videos, the girl filming it proudly proclaims that she "ruined Christmas" for Bruce Springsteen's biggest bunch of fans.

At dinner she "announces" the fake news that Springsteen died at the age of 73. The people she is filming cross paths, gasp in shock and then angrily ask: "Why are you laughing?".

When she tells them it was a joke, the angry revelers shout "bouse" and even throw bread at her.


Most TikTok commenters were not amused.

"I almost cried!!!"

One wrote, while another threatened: "You should sleep with one eye open," and another concluded: "No."

It's just a terrible thing to do to someone."

Although most of the videos follow the same format, at least one of them had an unexpectedly funny twist. In one of the clips, a man filmed himself delivering the "shocking" news of Michael Jackson's death. Although the man that the photographer reacts with surprise, it seems that he is not really up to date with the news of the pop world, since as we know, Jackson has been dead for over a decade, since 2009.
