A dirty, trash-strewn house tour, presented on TikTok as 'three boys living on their own,' has left viewers completely aghast
- A TikToker's video of an extremely disordered, trash-strewn house has gone viral on multiple platforms.
- The user who posted the video captioned it, "Trigger warning: Three boys living on their own."
- While viewers reacted in repulsion, house tours have become a somewhat popular subgenre on TikTok.
Viewers are in absolute shock over a TikTok video showing a house littered with trash, alcohol bottles, uncleaned dishes, and messes scattered over every surface. The description of the video, which has gone viral on both TikTok and Twitter, claims that it's the product of "three boys living on their own."
The video, posted by the user @samsspiralintoinsanity in late April, slowly panned over several rooms in the house to let people take in the chaos. It's been viewed almost 800,000 times on the platform, however, on Twitter, the tour has been viewed over 13.5 million times.
As depicted in the viral clip, the living room table and floor were covered in empty bottles, cups, and food containers; a wall was punctured with holes; a pan with food residue was left sitting on the stove with a fly buzzing over it; dirty dishes piled unevenly in the sink; a bag of trash lay in a corner; the blinds of a window were ripped in half and hanging off the top; and a couple of socks sat sadly in a bathtub.
@Samsspiralintoinsanity then showed one very organized shelf that appeared to house several vodka handles piled elegantly on top of one another. The video's location is tagged as High Point, a city in North Carolina.
Comments on the original video are packed with people shocked that anyone could live in such a messy state, while others said they've personally visited houses that looked like this. Viewers guessed that the "three boys living on their own" were college-aged.
The consensus was that this is a completely ghastly and inappropriate way to live.
"I could never not care about myself this much," one commenter wrote.
"This is so upsetting," another viewer added.
"I'd never feel safe in this house," wrote another.
The TikTok was then shared to Twitter this month, where it's gone even more viral. A tweet calling it "one of the most stunning TikToks" user @joker_misato has ever seen received nearly 30,000 likes, and spawned a fresh wave of shocked reactions and witty criticisms for the residents.

"The fly buzzing around the pan littered with plastic forks...poetry to me," @joker_misato wrote.
This isn't the first time a chaotic house tour has gone viral on TikTok. There have been so many over the years, usually of fraternity houses, that it's practically become its own subgenre on the platform. While it's nowhere near the disarray of this most recent house tour, influencer Alix Earle shocked fans in March by allowing them to see the unkept mess she also lives in with her roommates.
While most commenters are left horrified, some are brave enough to admit that they, too, have lived like this.
"It's like I'm suddenly 18 again," one person wrote on @samsspiralintoinsanity's video. "I don't miss this lmao."
