Sisters, Aged 6 And 8, Smash TikTok Tiger King Trend

Sisters, Aged 6 And 8, Smash TikTok Tiger King Trend

Tiger King really is the gift that keeps on giving, and another incredible reminder of its brilliant weirdness was the TikTok trend of the Carole Baskin remix of 'Savage' - with two sisters absolutely smashing their version.

The original, created by TikTok user @calebjaxin on 4 March, showed him dancing to a song he'd created dressed as the Tiger King himself - Joe Exotic.

The tune, which is a remake of the song Savage, by Meg Thee Stallion (which is very NSFW, by the way), changed the lyrics and did it in a voice which is the absolute RINGER of Joe Exotic's.


The new version revolves around the theory that Carole Baskin, Joe Exotic's arch enemy, killed her husband.

The lyrics seem to be in agreement with said theory - the song says: "Carole Baskin. Killed her husband, whacked him. Can't convince me that it didn't happen. Fed him to Tigers, they snackin'. What's happening'. Carole Baskin."

Like many celebrities, to sisters have really embraced the lockdown boredom and done their own, immense version of the TikTok video trend.


Dolly Austin, six, and her sister Betsy Austin, eight, recorded their version of the song in their back garden, complete with pet sausage dog Daphne who unbeknownst to her, became a prop for the video.

Their mum, Leah, 41, said that they have been making good use of their time together during lockdown.

She told LADbible: "The weather being good has really helped - the kids have been playing in the garden lots, making their own fun when we don't have things to do."

And although the kids have been in the room while Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness has been on, they're not too sure what's actually going on - I think I speak for us all when I say that I can definitely relate to that.


Leah added: "Dolly loves Joe Exotic the most, and of course the baby tigers, she thinks it's a wildlife documentary."

Oh, if only that was the case, Dolly.

Betsy, who wants to be a teacher when she's older, was the brains behind the operation and managed to choreograph the whole thing, as well as being head costume designer.


Although she wasn't the biggest fan of Tiger King - she told us she found it boring - she did notice it was the man from all the TikTok dances she had seen, and got straight on to it.

She dressed an enthusiastic Dolly up as Joe Exotic - which goes some way to explaining why Dolly being the lucky recipient of the moustache.

And although future artist Dolly is enjoying spending quality time with her family, like the rest of us, she misses her mates too. The first thing she wants to do is go to a water-park (very good choice) and have a sleepover with her pals.

If there's one thing we can say about lockdown - it's given us some next level social media content.
