Put these vids on TV already!
If you’ve come across some vids with a discreet “AS” symbol as you’ve been scrolling TikTok, then you probably know all about the Adult Swim bump trend making the rounds on the app. After all, people from across the country have been joining in on the trend, which has users paying tribute to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim with their own bumps. Even if you’ve never watched Adult Swim, you’ll want to check out these 13 best “AS” Adult Swim bumps on TikTok that are creative and hilarious.
If you’re wondering how the Adult Swim logo TikTok trend got started, it gets its inspiration from the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim OG bumps, which are basically mini commercials for the Adult Swim lineup. The bumps were typically in mundane settings with clever captions, and they were often used to get younger viewers to flip to another channel once Adult Swim was about to start (since it featured more NSFW content than other Cartoon Network shows).
TikToker @Vano 3000 put his own spin on the iconic skits by sharing his own Adult Swim bump of someone dressed up as Spider-Man on May 24, which revealed an Adult Swim logo at the end. For the video, he even created an original Adult Swim sound by sampling BADBADNOTGOOD’s “Time Moves Slow,” which other users have been using.
TikTokers have been sharing so many innovative bumps, with the Adult Swim or “AS” logo popping up everywhere from the thrift store to a baker’s kitchen. To give you a preview of what’s out there, check out these some of the best Adult Swim TikTok bumps.
This video by TikToker @puffboypayne turns a mini golf session into an innovative bump. As the golf ball misses where it’s seemingly supposed to land, it makes its way past the green to complete an “AS” made entirely of golf balls. It’s captioned, “Just because you’re supposed to belong somewhere... doesn’t mean you won’t fit in somewhere else.”
This video by TikToker @coolcatsummer shows someone browsing through different black shirts at a thrift store before coming upon a shirt with the Adult Swim symbol. It’s has a slightly dark but very Adult Swim-esque caption: “Don’t waste your money on new clothes when you can buy someone’s dead grandma’s clothes. Think smarter, not harder.”
