The musician has also covered sea shanty ‘Wellerman’, another hugely popular TikTok hit which went viral earlier this year, leading to a record deal and UK number one for its creator Nathan Evans.

Ufret has also uploaded a number of ‘serious’ tracks to YouTube. “I’m a YouTuber who wanted to do Cartman covers on TikTok!” he said in his bio on the app.

Last month, meanwhile, a clip of Guy Fieri headbanging in the front row at a Slipknot show in 2019 went viral on the video-sharing app.

The US restauranteur and TV presenter was captured on camera by Alexandria Crahan, the photographer daughter of Slipknot co-founder and percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan.
