“When he thinks he pulled a baddie” trend, theater kids edition: ‘You have done well young Padawan’
Theater kids disguised as “baddies” are revealing their true identities in TikTok’s latest trend — and it’s as endearing as you’d imagine.
The “When he thinks he pulled a baddie” trend has found its new target audience: theater kids. The trend sees TikTok users and presumed “baddies” belt out popular Broadway songs. The hilarious assumption here, of course, is that they bamboozled their significant others into a relationship with an “undercover theater kid.”
17-year-old Layla (@layla.herrera5) posted her adorable rendition of the trend.
“When he thinks he pulled a baddie but he actually pulled an undercover theater kid,” she writes while lip-syncing to Burn by Philippa Soo, from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton.
“You have done well young Padawan”
Fellow theater kids are praising the teenager for her relatable video.
“Exactly,” someone wrote.
“You have done well young Padawan,” one user replied.
21-year-old Rachel Rudisill (@rach.rudisill) claims to be an “ex-show choir girl.”
“When he thinks he pulled a baddie, but really your just an ex-show choir girl,” she writes.
Norrah Raye (@norrahraye) shared a similar sentiment.
“when he thinks he pulled a baddie but you’re just a theater kid that’s not ugly,” she writes.
“You would never know I majored in Musical Theatre and that is my super power”
“It’s okay he is a theatre kid too,” one user wrote.
“theater kid = baddie though and I will die on this hill,” another wrote.
“You would never know I majored in Musical Theatre and that is my super power,” someone replied.
The trend, which is all in good fun, serves as yet another reminder that Gen Zers are unapologetically owning who they are. Theater kids are cool, and these content creators are embracing that fact.
