TikToker Claire (@clairefromwhere) posted a video recently asking people to 'help an American girl out' by explaining 'Wetherspoons'.
JD Wetherspoon, is, of course, a national pub company operating nearly 900 sites across the UK and Ireland.
But it's also a state of mind - as many Brits flocked to TikTok to clarify.
In her original clip, Claire said: "Can we please explain 'Wetherspoons' to me? Because I keep seeing it everywhere and I know it's not, like, a specific bar or a specific pub, but I just don't get... I don't get it."
Whispering into her microphone, she added: "What is it?!"
The British public jumped at the chance to enlighten Claire, mentioning everything from cheap drinks and food through to the toilets.
TikTok user Christy Ann Collins (@thechristycollins) summarised things nicely, saying in a stitched video: "In the UK, everyone calls it 'Spoons. Three Jagerbombs for a fiver, two pitchers for £12 and you can get yourself a meal and a pint for about £6.
"The rumours are true: you have to walk a while to get to the loo.
"However, the price of the drinks just makes that OK.
"It's usually a place in the UK we go for 'prinks' or 'day drinks'."
A DJ called Goodman (@goodmandnb) compared the pub chain to McDonald's to help her make sense of it.
He said: "McDonald's is brilliant because it gives you all of your favourite foods really cheaply.
"Now, because we like drinking, we like Wetherspoons because it brings us all our favourite drinks - but cheaply."
Goodman also explained how drinks in towns and city centres are more expensive, but Wetherspoon pubs help people 'get p***sed for a tenner'.
"That's why we love it," he said, adding: "And they're f***ing everywhere, just like a Maccies!"
Many others also pointed that one of the key traits of a Wetherspoon pub is that the toilets are often weirdly far away - something we've grown to love over the years.
Claire picked up on this particular theme in the responses, asking why everyone had such an opinion on the toilets.
TikToker The Coggy (@thecoggy) told her: "Because they're 40 miles away from where they were sat.
"They've got to scale Everest, cross the Grand Canyon, take a trip on the Orient Express [...] and climb 40 flights of stairs just to get to the bog."
And that, America, is why Britain loves 'Spoons.
