Penn State Classrooms Featured In Popular TikToker’s Viral Videos
In a world full of influencers and TikTokers, it feels like people will do pretty much anything to go viral. And like most, TikTok star, fckjoshy (Joshy), is doing the most in random Penn State classrooms for his 15-minutes of fame. Unsurprisingly, his videos are gaining a lot of traction.
Joshy uses a combination of self-deprecating humor, shock value, absurdity, and sometimes grotesque content to build a recognizable brand across TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. On TikTok alone, he has amassed more than 100 million total views, 35 million likes, and 1.6 million followers after just 5 months. His most popular videos feature him doing things like making popcorn and grilling paninis in college lecture halls. One of his favorite stages is Penn State’s very own Forum Building.
But who is Joshy? We’re not exactly sure, but we know for sure that he’s not a Penn State student. In fact, the tagline he uses at the end of most of his videos is “…and then I dropped out.” There’s not much known about Joshy’s actual identity other than his social media presence, questionable stand-up comedy career, and a stint as an intern at Barstool Sports. He also had a stand-up comedy show in 2016 called “College Dropout,” but alas, that didn’t work out either.
Penn State isn’t the only school that’s fallen victim to his TikTok pranks, as he’s created similar content at Bucknell, and even made headlines for cooking an omelet in a UConn classroom. Some people are angry at his disruptive classroom behavior, while others are grateful for his entertaining skits breaking up the monotony of a long lecture in Forum.
