If you’re on Vine at all, you’ve probably seen #apotatoflewaroundmyroom creep up the trending tags, seemingly out of nowhere.

As we post this, it has 165.3K likes, 158.8K revines, and 20.7K comments. That’s just the original Vine, not counting reposts to other platforms such as YouTube, Tumblr, or anywhere else.
