The latest big TikTok trend sees people creating hilarious sketches about a fictional Woodchuck Revolution where the world is being taken over by small rodents.
Have you ever thought about how the world will end? Perhaps it will be a zombie apocalypse, an enormous meteor crashing into the earth or a deadly pandemic. Or maybe, the world will be taken over by woodchucks.
It certainly seems like a bizarre thought. Why would the world be inundated with small squirrel-like creatures? Your guess is as good as ours, but it’s become the basis for the latest viral TikTok trend.
Here’s everything you need to know about TikTok’s Woodchuck Revolution.

Woodchuck videos are going viral on TikTok
A new trend has emerged on TikTok over the past few days that sees users creating videos about something called the ‘Woodchuck Revolution’.
The trend uses The Woodchuck Song by AronChupa & Little Sis Nora, a track that uses the popular tongue twister: “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood”.
If you’ve been on TikTok recently, your ‘For You’ page has probably been dominated with Woodchuck videos and you might be a little confused. Let’s explore what the Woodchuck Revolution videos are actually about.
The Woodchuck Revolution trend explained
It all started when a TikTok user called @piptersen uploaded a video using the Woodchuck Song. He wrote on the screen:
“POV: You live in a society that was overthrown by woodchucks and you hear their battle song in the distance and know you and the resistance have to fight the final battle for your freedom.”
The bizarrely hilarious sketch refers to a Woodchuck Revolution in which the human race is overthrown by woodchucks. If you’re not familiar with what a woodchuck is, it’s a small rodent that’s also known as a groundhog, so this is a fictional human vs animal apocalyptic type event.
The video which was captioned #woodchuckchallenge gained a huge 2.5 million views and 614,000 likes.
Being overthrown by a small army of rodents is a weird thought, but the idea is now taking over TikTok!

Now the fictional Woodchuck Revolution is taking over TikTok
After the original woodchuck video went viral, a number of other TikTok users have joined in on the trend, giving their point of view of a world that has been taken over by woodchucks. It’s become known as the Woodchuck Revolution, and it’s certainly one of the strangest trends we’ve seen on TikTok.
Here are some of the most popular Woodchuck Revoluton videos…

POV: You are the last winged Resistance fighter. Both of your smoking engines have been struck by the chuck’s wooden arrows. You realise that crash landing on their front lines would give the remaining humans on the ground a fighting chance.
POV: Your father is part of the squirrel mafia and in order to have him not arrested you must perform a traditional dance for the woodchuck gang.
POV: You and the resistance hear the woodchuck’s battlecry shortly after you return from your mission to steal their stockpile of wood.
POV: You reveal to your daughter she is half woodchuck and she chooses to go back to the woodchucks as a double agent.
