What is the slushie trend on TikTok?

The slushie trend on TikTok involves people purchasing large slushies from Circle-K, 7-Eleven, or similar convenience stores/gas stations, and then throwing them at their truck parked outside instead of consuming them as intended.

This act of deliberate mess-making is filmed and then shared on TikTok, set against the backdrop of the rap song ‘Bag Season’ by Jay Lewis featuring Da Real Gee Money, marking their participation in this specific social media challenge.

The slushy trend is primarily popular among teenagers, who are the main participants in creating and sharing these videos. Many videos of this trend have racked up millions of views, although many viewers are still confused by the whole thing.

A significant portion of the audience remains perplexed about the rationale behind it. “I don't understand this,” one user commented. “It makes me cringe every time I see one” another wrote. “Guess I’m officially old at 25,” a third said.

For anyone thinking clearly, this trend is seen as stupid as it involves wasting food and creating a mess to gain attention. Well, TikTok often has trends that don't make much sense, so this new one isn't really a shock.
