The Brief: The "I'm Bad" TikTok Toe Stand Challenge sees creators attempting their best Michael Jackson footwork.


TikTokers are imitating the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson, as part of the “I’m Bad” Toe Stand Challenge. These videos are marked by creators trying to balance on their tippy toes, just like the late artist. Typically, when they achieve it, their screen changes from color to black-and-white, similar to the “Bad” video which consisted of both black-and-white and multicolored scenes.


But my friend, you have say nothing
Just wait ’til I get through!
Because I’m bad, I’m bad! Shamone! (Bad, bad, really, really bad)

The trend is incredibly popular, with over 1.8 million videos linked to it. Many of these videos consist of TikTokers doing their best MJ toe stand, including popular creators like celeb China Anne McClain and social media star Bella Poarch. They both garnered millions of likes and views.
